Carried out on 25 horses
Double-blind under clinical conditions
This study was carried out across 25 horses in the full time care at Writtle University. Each horse was evaluated using industry leading technologies on their tarsal joint (hock) mobility and the correlation between the use of StreamZ technology and an increase in tarsal joint mobility.
“In conclusion, it was possible to demonstrate a correlation between the use of the EQU StreamZ fetlock bands and improved tarsal joint mobility, most notably in the flexion phase of the stride… a significant difference was demonstrated in the parameters assessed, and with the support of objective measures in place, bias was removed from the trial, thus, further reinforcing the quantitative nature of the findings.
On this basis, the suggestion could be made for the use of the bands within sporting and injury recovery parameters, as well as part of well-being and maintenance protocols – most particularly noted for use on horses suffering from joint degeneration.”
