Equilibrium Heatsense

Introducing the Massage Pad Heatsense from Equilibrium. Combining the proven technology of the Massage Pad with reliable, tested and intelligent heat capable of reading your horses’ temperature and adapting it’s output to ensure it delivers a consistent and effective therapeutic heat level.

Heat is non-invasive and well accepted with many associated benefits, including:

  • Maintaining good oxygen supply to muscles.
  • Encouraging muscle relaxation.
  • Increasing flexibility and elasticity of tissue.

Although heat is considered a gentle therapy, if temperatures are not high enough, there is unlikely to be any significant effect to the tissue. If temperatures are too high, or are left in position too long, then tissue damage may occur.

The Heatsense Pad has therefore been thoroughly tested to ensure the heat is delivered in accordance with supporting research*. A range of sources determined the following necessities for the Massage Pad Heatsense:

  • Heat is delivered between 40-45 degrees Celsius.
  • The target temperature is maintained for 15 minutes.
  • The heat should never exceed 45 degrees Celsius for an extended period of time.

The Heatsense features an intelligent monitoring system, which constantly checks the temperature being delivered to your horse. This adjusts accordingly to ensure a repeatable session is experienced each time the pad is used. Not only does this ensure the product is effective, but it also makes sure that it is safe.

Alongside the benefits of heat, Heatsense is equipped with the same independently tested technology found within the Equilibrium Massage Pad. Trials of the Massage Pad showed a significant increase in back flexibility and relaxation, and an increase in stride length was also noted. Find out more about the Massage Pad testing here:
