A few weeks ago, our resident product reviewer, Colleen Peachey, wrote about her experiences with the UltrOZ Therapeutic Ultrasound System. Colleen was so thrilled with the results that she went ahead and purchased a system of her own to continue using on her horses.
What exactly is the UltrOZ Therapeutic Ultrasound System? It’s a wearable, unattended (that’s right, just put it on your horse, and they can hang out in their stall eating hay for the entire treatment time) state-of-the-art therapeutic system that utilizes Low Intensity Therapeutic Ultrasound (LITUS) to assist with both maintenance and treatment for your equine athlete.
Ultrasound therapy has been used by veterinarians for decades to treat common soft tissue and bone fracture injuries. It’s great for treating tendon and suspensory injuries, splints, muscle strains and tears, fracture and bone chip repair, minor strains, bumps, bruises and inflammation. You can speed up your injury recovery time with this FDA proven device.
If you’re curious to see what equine professionals are saying about this product, here are just a few testimonials from some well-known faces around the industry:
“The horse was 40 percent improved at seven days, 100 percent sound at two weeks. The splint reduced in size 50 percent by week three. The speed of return to soundness and the rapid reduction in the size of the splint were the atypical components of the outcome compared to the normal case. The horse has remained sound and back into work six weeks later.” — Dr. Chris Newton, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital
“It is my veterinary medical opinion that UltrOZ therapeutic ultrasound is responsible for the majority of increased fracture healing noted in the past 30 days. This particular system is ideal because it is very user-friendly, which allows the barn manager or trainer to apply the therapy daily without a licensed therapist or veterinarian involved.” — Dr. Holly Schmitt DVM, Hagyard
Suspensory Ligament Tear
“We treated a 12-year-old dressage horse for a right hind medial branch suspensory ligament tear with the UltrOZ unit for one hour a day for six weeks. This lesion had failed to respond to other therapies, and after treatment, we finally saw excellent improvement in echogenicity and fiber alignment. We are happy with the results.” — Dr. Tracy Turner, DVM, Elk River, Minn.
Soft Tissue Injury
“I’ve been using the UltrOz system on one of my horses with a minor soft tissue injury and it is incredibly user friendly and straightforward. I have seen significant improvement with the use of the system on this particular injury and also on a variety of different injuries. I am very impressed with the outcome of all of them! I love how small and portable the system is. It’s easy to take to the events and easy to use anywhere.” — Lizzie Snow, Upper-level event rider
