Frequently Asked Questions

 1. For changing leads, does the machine need to be completely off or can just the pulse part be off?

 a. Yes, leads can be changed after pressing the red button and the pulse is turned off.

 b. To mitigate any chance of a problems the power should be completely shut off, prior to removing/changing the leads. 

2. When treating a specific area can one remain in one place for the full treatment cycle or should the loop be moved it around?

 a. Good question! Depends upon how large of an area. Hindquarters and backs are large areas that need more treatment time for proper coverage. Horses generally like the stroking of the loop over these areas, so move the loop around. 

 b. When treating hocks, fetlocks, hoofs, etc. leave the loop in place for the full 10 minute treatment cycle. At 5 minutes rotated the loop 90 degrees so the magnetic field penetrates the body part from a  different angle. This is a bit more challenging for stifles. When treating a stifle, choose a loop that is dependent upon the size of the horse’s stifle.   A smaller stifle can be surrounded by a joint loop.

3. When moving the loop around, how long should the treatment actually remain in one spot?

 a. For a complete treatment on one spot 6-10 minutes is adequate, Again, horses are huge animals so in the case of treating hindquarters, backs  and shoulders, holding it in one place, vs moving it around, may or may not address the specific area that requires treatment. 

 b. If the Vet knows what specifically area requires treatment, and that area can be covered by the loop, then 10 minutes on that are is adequate. 

4. How often should the therapy be done? Can you treat a spot to much?

 a. Treatments can be administered two or three times daily, with 4-5 hour breaks between treatments.

  b. Treating a spot too much: There’s no evidence that an animal can be over-treated. However, if there is recent, extensive damage to tissues then it is possible that a highly aggressive contraction could cause further trauma and hemorrhage. With a human, who for instance have a sprained ankle, the technology is applied at a low intensity setting for 10 minutes. The objective is to keep the lymphatic system open, blood flowing and reduce the chances of swelling.

5. How many times/days should an area be treated and should this vary depending on times treated?

 a. Since there is no evidence of negative side effects for extended use of  PEMF, the treatment limits would be based upon results. A human will tell you that they feel better and that a problem area feels good and no further treatment is required. Obviously, a horse cannot communicate this. Thus, it a decision needs to be made by the owner, vet or trainer.

 b. Many people and horses a continue treatment after an injury has been resolved, as a matter of maintenance. This is more so with athletes, whether it is a human or horse.

6. How high should the intensity level be?  As long as it is tolerable is it ok?  Can it be set too low that it isn’t helping?

 a. The threshold of discomfort is the typical measure of intensity level. The stronger the intensity the deeper the penetration.

 b. The treatment provider will generally find that as the state of the  injury improves, there is less discomfort to a more intense (deeper penetrating) treatment.

 c. Even low setting will provide a benefit. However, if the injury is deep within the muscle tissue of within a joint, the more treatment cycles will be required. There are no studies or evidence as to the trade-off between the two.

7. If a horse is sedated should anything about our treatment change?

 a. The PEMF will cause the drug to be metabolized much more quickly. If a sedative is required, experiment with a lower dose and once an EquiPulse treatment commences, watch to see if the lower dose provides adequate sedation. 

8. Can I cause any damage using the EquiPulse?

 a. Absolutely! Keep it away from water!  

 b. Like most athletes and active people, who feel amazing after a treatment, care should be taken not to push the athletic limits to quickly. Take time before attempting to run a horse hard or compete too soon, if they have been treated for an injury, etc.

c. If a horse becomes startled or bolts there is a high potential for damage to persons, property and the horse. Application of the loops and intensity settings are very important.

Do you or your horse suffer from soreness in the back, from stiffness, arthritic conditions, ligament, tendon, muscle or bone injury, decreased range of motion or poor circulation?

• PEMF (Pulsed Electro-Magnetic  Field) Therapy is widely used on humans and to condition race horses at race tracks around the world.

• PEMF therapy regenerates damaged and diseased tissue, repairs torn tendons and fractured bones.

• PEMF  therapy enhances the synthesis of protein in the cells, allowing the body to take advantage of all the protein available.

• PEMF  therapy  improves circulation, not by increasing heartbeat or blood pressure, but by opening and dilating the arteries and capillaries. This also reduces edema (swelling).  

• PEMF  therapy increases the cellular level of oxygen absorption. Studies have shown that oxygen partial pressure can be increased by 200%. This reduces pain associated with lack of sufficient oxygen. Also, insufficient oxygen in the cells causes lactic acid buildup under strenuous exercise.

PEMF  therapy is  particularly effective in getting to deep muscle soreness because of its deep penetration.

• The body's natural magnetic field. This is created by the flow of electrically charged ions in and out of cells and the transmission of electric impulses through cell membranes. Only Pulsed  Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) force and not static magnets can influence electrical changes on a cellular level within the body for cell metabolism to be influenced. In addition static magnets only create continuous low levels of magnetic induction.  The EquiPulse device delivers a very short duration, high intensity magnetic  pulse.   This results in a PEMF which penetrates completely through joints and muscles for a complete therapy!

• Time Needed for Therapy. The EquiPulse system only needs to be used for 10-20 minutes, per body part, each day. This means that, in the space of one day, you can use the one EquiPulse unit for all the horses and their riders in your barn.  

•  Published, scientific studies abound for pulsed magnetic field therapy. PEMF has been FDA approved and widely used in the treatment of human delayed bone fractures for over a decade, and there is a growing body of literature concerning the biological and clinical effects of this energy.  A recent study using pulsed magnetic fields reminds us that in clinical studies done over 17 years, over  millions of patients have been treated safely with PEMF. Now you can use this therapy on YOURSELF and YOUR horses too!

Who Uses our PEMF Technology:  

Dr. Richard Stevens - Conejo Valley Equine      

“It is critical to keep my equine patients at the top of their physical ability.  Our practice can now treat certain conditions with this amazing, non-invasive therapeutic modality. The fact that it does not conflict with drug withdrawal times is fantastic!”  

Barbara Ellison - Wild Turkey Farm

“We purchased our EquiPulse and have been fans ever since. We use it every day on all of our high performance horses before every workout, and at the shows will often use it twice a day. The horses relax totally while they being treated and thoroughly enjoy the treatment. I strongly believe it has made the difference in our Grand Prix stallion LaMarque. We would never think of going to a competition without taking the EquiPulse with us. I believe it has made a difference in the soundness of our horses especially those who have back or shoulder problems.”

Treatment Tips Introduction Process   

Dr. Janice Posnikoff - OC Equine

EquiPulse has been a fantastic addition to our treatment options in our practice.  Not only have we found it to be an excellent primary treatment for Sacroiliac ligament problems, backs and necks but it has also integrated beautifully with our other energy and regenerative medicine therapies.  I have used it personally on my own injuries with great success."

 Lava Man was purchased in a Claimer Race for $50,000.  Lava Man was then treated with the EquiPulse, because of an abscess in his left front foot, which then healed in 4 days with the use of this device. From then on Lava Man routinely received EquiPulse treatments on his entire body. He came back from his foot injury in 2006 and blossomed into a superstar.  Lava Man has won 7 Grade 1 races ranking him as the all-time leader among California-breds. Lava Man is the all-time leading earner among claimers and is arguably the greatest claim in racing history.

Mandy Porter - ACP Enterprises

“ACP Enterprises has used the EquiPulse for three years now and we couldn't be more enthusiastic about the machine and the results it produces. As with all athletes, some days require more effort in training and competing and with regular use of the EquiPulse, veterinary attention and restorative time have been significantly reduced. We're amazed at how we've even been able to reduce or eliminate joint injections on some of our horses. We've also had great success using the EquiPulse before schooling and competitions to help warm-up back muscles. Since using the EquiPulse, we have seen quieter and more relaxed horses overall.”   

Dr. Michael Reuben - Equine Sport Performance

“After witnessing dramatic results in the healing of injuries and improvement of performance, I decided to integrate the EquiPulse into my therapeutic practice to provide the best possible results in the shortest amount of time.”  

Oliver Costello with Well Armed after winning the $500,000 Goodwood.  "I have worked on many other quality horses for over two years. The decision was made to utilize the EquiPulse because of a multitude of problems occurring with horses becoming sore in there hind quarters. With no definitive cure or diagnosis of what or why the soreness was occurring, it became imperative that a remedy was needed. After just a few sessions with the EquiPulse it became very obvious that this technology would be of great benefit. PEMF therapy has grown rapidly grew throughout the Equine industry, with the discovery of the many other benefits from this therapy.   I have also seen great results with other soft tissue injuries. Not only can the EquiPulse speed up recovery of a torn or injured tendon or suspensory, PEMF technology therapy can also be used as preventative therapy. I find using the EquiPulse 2-3 times a week, on a horse, to be the most effective.”

MJ Martinelli DVM, PhD Diplomate American College of  Veterinary Surgeons California Equine Orthopedics


Our practice focuses on diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal issues in performance horses.  Therapy with a Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) has revolutionized our ability to successfully return athletic horses to their full potential; in many cases obviating the need for joint injections or surgery.  We have found the EquiPulse especially effective at treating acute or chronic sacroiliac injuries.  We are also using PEMF Therapy for injuries or strains to the tissues around the joints, specifically at the insertion of the tendons, ligaments and joint capsule (entheses).  In some of our clients' training barns, the EquiPulse has been effective at helping the horses to “warm up” the large muscle groups prior to engaging in any athletic activity.


Dr. Gary Johnson - Dana Niguel Veterinary Hospital

“We have been using the Delta Pulse Small Animal Vet  device with great success for degenerative intervertebral disk disease, DJD of the elbows, hips and stifles.  Also for both non-surgical and post-surgical cranial cruciate disease.  The owners have been very accepting of the repeat visits needed and really love the non-invasive nature of the treatments.  Our patients have not resisted the treatment and usually relax doing treatments, even treating cats for lumbosacral disease.”
