It sounds almost too good to be true, an easy to use, one-step, drug- free therapy that can minimise the effects of a recent Musculoskeleta trauma and accelerate recovery from new and old injuries. Thinking “It cannot possibly exist” But it does and it really is that good.
If running a busy yard makes it difficult to find the time to apply hot and cold therapy to your horse’s legs through repeated hosing (hosing is only ever at ambient temperature) and bandaging, then take the established treatment you already know about to a different level.
The system consists of a portable machine that controls the flow of a propriety fluid that can maintain constant cold an hot therapies, which is attached to wraps via hoses. The machine pumps the fluid through the hoses into the form-fitting wraps that surround the affected area for maximum heat removal and consistent cooling these wraps are soft and remain so even at -5. The hoses can have safety connections fitted so should the horse pull away they are instantly disconnected and the machine remains in a safe position ensuring minimal fluid loss.
The Zamar system provides cold and hot treatments, combined with massage to improve circulation and promote healing. It is designed to help reduce and prevent joint problems, muscle strains, ligament and tendon problems.
There is no ICE just a dry application minimising the risk of cracked heels, scratches, dermatological issues and hoof problems.
The Zamar machine is designed to be mobile (on a trolley) and in a treatment box (stable unit). The mobile unit can be used on a horse box via a generator.
The Zamar units are available in hot and cold, or cold only, they can be programmed to a set temperature ranging from – 3c to +40c with a massage function which is also pre-programmable. cold therapy or cryotherapy is far more effective with massage combined. It is possible to set to treat both cold or cold and hot, at pre-programmable intervals (i.e 5 mins cold 5 minutes hot)
The Zamar machine reaches temperature quickly, saving you time when treating and maintaining your horses health to the highest level.
