UltrOZ™ Elite is a wearable ultrasonic therapy system for the treatment of common musculoskeletal conditions in horses.  UltrOZ has been used successfully to treat Splints, Suspensory Ligaments & Tendons, Muscle strains, Stiff joints, Arthritis, and Bone fractures.

Heat Therapy: increases circulation, promotes healing, produces relaxation, warms specific tissues and stiff joints in preparation for stretching and exercise, and reduces pain and muscle spasm.

Electrical Stimulation (E-stim): is a modality widely used for a multitude of remedy applications, from relieving pain to stimulating muscles, by the use of electrodes applied to the skin that deliver low-voltage stimulation to nerves in the skin and muscles below. Electrical stimulation (E-Stim) is non-invasive and non-addictive. It does not have side effects and can be used to treat acute and chronic conditions. For pain relief it is an excellent alternative to medication. It is an excellent approach to retraining denervated muscles, preventing atrophy, and can assist strengthening of weak muscles. In addition it can provide microvascular perfusion in the stimulated tissue and can often provide an overall relaxation affect on the horse during treatment.

Cold Therapy: decreases metabolic rate, reduces inflammation by vasoconstriction, decreases pain by decreasing nerve conduction.

Low Level Light LASER: accelerates tissue healing by increasing vascularity and nitric oxide to the healing tissue (greater blood supply brings more oxygenated blood to the healing tissues), raises endorphin levels to decrease pain, stimulates the production of collagen tissue, and increases lymphatic activity.

Therapeutic Ultrasound (US): produces thermal and non-thermal effects .Thermal US heats deep target tissues to reduce pain, reduce muscle spasm, joint stiffness and increases tissue extensibility. Non-thermal effects increase collagen production (this is the protein network that rebuilds tissues), promotes the healing process, stimulates blood flow, bone fracture and tendon repair.
