STREAMZ FOR HORSES

EQU StreamZ magnetic horse bands introduce a new technique in magnetism for horses – non invasive 360º resonance technology.

Traditional magnets have been used for many years within the equestrian community often found stitched into boots or rugs. Their pulsating magnetic process has achieved limited clinical support and the reputation in using these traditional magnetic devices on horses is mixed. StreamZ unique low-impact magnetic approach changes how magnetic fields are deployed allowing them to be used for longer periods of time. 

Disadvantages in using traditional magnet devices include the inability to leave them on whilst through turn out due to the heat created by their pulsating effect. This increase in temperature prevents their use directly after competing or exercise, limits their application time and can be difficult to manage. StreamZ is different, it spins!

360º MAGNETIC HORSE BANDS

EQU StreamZ magnetic horse bands contain a continuous strip of StreamZ magnetised silicone, creating a 360º non invasive energy field which spins around the horses leg.

StreamZ revolutionary approach to magnetism creates no increase in heat. Our magnetic horse bands are suitable for use on fetlocks or hocks and directly after exercise . They can be worn long-term, 24/7 if required – including through turnout. Easy to manage and a low cost solution. 

Each pack contains two bands to be worn by one horse; comfortably wrapped around the cannon or pastern bone on either fore or hind legs and worn for a minimum of 8 hours per day. Although worn around the horse leg, StreamZ unique magnetic technology helps minerals across the system creating the ‘StreamZ effect’ throughout the body and not just to localised areas.

ENDORSED BY THE BEST

EQU StreamZ are proud to be endorsed by a variety of leading professionals within the equine community, from Olympic champions to budding amateurs EQU StreamZ friends. Used alongside their daily programs and as part of their ongoing management to help keep their horses in tip-top condition, provide joint care and support when travelling. 

EQU StreamZ ambassadors include Olympians Gemma Tattersall (Eventing) and Sophie Wells (Para Dressage), International 5* show jumpers such as Trevor Breen and Harriet Nuttall and many other international stars across a variety of equine disciplines including showjumping, eventing, dressage, barrel racing, polo, trick riding, mounting shooting and so on. 

Our partnerships with sponsored riders are not based on a financial commitment, but a promise to support their horse’s and make a difference.

SUITABLE FOR 24/7 USE

One disadvantage of using traditional magnetic technology is the limited period of time in which they can be used, often due to the heat created by their pulsating process; when working with several horses or looking to reduce heat using traditional magnetism can be a problem. 

StreamZ unique approach to magnetic fields generates no increase in heat, unlike with traditional magnets found in boots and rugs. This non invasive approach allows the bands to be worn 24/7 including through turnout.

EQU StreamZ bands can be wrapped around either fore or hind legs and above or below the fetlock joint. * When turned out for long periods of time the bands should be placed above the fetlock or removed. A few layers of vet-wrap over the top can be used if turned out in soft ground conditions. 

SUPPORTED STUDIES

Independent double-blind studies were carried out by a leading equine university. The positive results within these studies has led to further research being commissioned with a variety of partners including universities and equine technology experts. Although supported with clinical studies, StreamZ are unable to claim various and specific benefits due to strict advertising regulations. Anecdotal reviews help ‘spread the word’ but do not represent scientific proof. As a complimentary device EQU StreamZ horse bands should be used alongside prescribed medications and not as a substitute. 

StreamZ are committed to continuing a range of studies, both clinical and anecdotal, and to help achieve this goal have further studies being arranged to focus on stride lengths and various ranges of movement.

EQU StreamZ horse bands ® introduce a new technique in how magnetism is deployed – ‘360º resonance technology’ – a magnetic product for your horse with a difference!

StreamZ does not pulse, it spins! This unique process prevents an increase in temperature allowing the bands to be worn by the horse immediately after exercise and for long periods of time, including through turnout. Ideal to be used pre and post exercise.

The neoprene design fits snuggly against around the horses leg and is recommended to be worn for a minimum of 8hrs per day, the longer the better!

Each horse pack contains a pair of adjustable bands (up to 35cm circumference). Wrap each band around the fetlock/hock and attach using the hook-and-loop material, leaving enough of a gap to push your little finger between the band and the horses skin. A continuous layer of StreamZ material then ‘gets to work’!

By joining the ‘StreamZ Family’ your horse will be joining an illustrious bunch including World and Olympic Champions, international teams, leading charities and thousands of other customers across the world.

EQU StreamZ are with you, every step of the way.

Each horse is advised to wear two EQU StreamZ bands (one pair) just above or below the fetlock area, on any two front or hind legs. The technology is designed to be worn for a minimum of 8 hours a day although results have been reported as significantly greater when used 24/7. EQU StreamZ are designed to be used in most weather conditions however “24/7 use” refers to the technology and does not indicate the bands can be left on in all weather conditions or whilst out hacking. When the ground is soft and the horse is turned out the bands should be placed above the fetlock joint and out of the soft ground. Care and attention and a level of common-sense is required for the bands to last; as with any other tack product. See care details below. 

StreamZ offer a complementary option and should not to be used as a replacement to any professionally diagnosed medications or treatments. StreamZ technology is not clinically proven as the clinical studies carried out were not peer reviewed.

The bands have not been developed to be worn by horses in active use, such as hacking or competing. They can be left on in light exercise or when schooling. 

StreamZ bands are suitable to be used in conjunction with medications, supplements, diets, and traditional magnetic products however it is advisable that traditional magnetic products are not placed over the top of StreamZ as this can create damage to the StreamZ 360º magnetic energy field, either when on the horse or when in the tack room.

MEDICAL CONDITIONS TO BE AWARE OF:

Heart condition: It is advised the EQU StreamZ should not be used on any horse diagnosed with a medical heart condition. It is advised that you seek professional medical advice prior to using on a horse diagnosed with a heart condition.

Sensitive skin: Some animals (particularly white haired horses, or horses with allergic contact dermatitis) may find the neoprene too sensitive to place against the skin. StreamZ bands can be placed above other materials and be as effective, so a few layers of vet wrap/bandage can be placed around the leg before the bands are fitted if required. If you notice any discomfort or discolouration on the skin within the first 24hrs then remove the bands. If problems persist then the neoprene bands should be removed completely. The StreamZ strips can be removed from the sleeves and wrapped around the horses leg within a bandage/vet wrap – avoiding the use of neoprene.

Due to advertising regulations in the UK, mentioning specific conditions can be in breach of regulations. If your horse has been previously diagnosed with severe Cushings then you may want to speak with a vet prior to use.

StreamZ are a complimentary device and should never replace prescribed medications or treatments. As with prescribed medications StreamZ does not offer a guarantee on the intended results. Please consult your veterinary professional if you require medical advice, review our returns process, or contact one of our support team.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:

Ensure the horses legs are clean and dry before fitting. 

StreamZ advertise the EQU bands as “24/7 use”. This refers to the technology being able to be worn all day every day, and particularly when the horse is ‘in recovery’. This does not stipulate that bands can be worn 24/7 in all weather conditions, particularly in extremely muddy conditions where the bands may become submerged. Common sense is require for when the horse can and cannot wear the bands.

Cleaning the bands: The material has a life span as with any aesthetic product such as shoes or clothing; it requires care and attention to last 12 months or more, particularly the fastening. To keep the bands as long as possible it is advised that they are washed every couple of weeks using only cold water. Simply remove the StreamZ silicone strips from the open end of the bands (the end next to fastening tongue) and wash by hand or in a machine on a cold hand washing setting and place the strips somewhere safe. Hand/pat dry and slide the StreamZ strips back into the bands, with the ridges/lines on the StreamZ strip facing away from the skin (smooth side facing the skin). Avoid using warm/hot water at all times as this can damage the hooks on the fastening material. 

Pay attention to the open-stitched end of each band. This open stitch allows the removal of the StreamZ magnetic strips for when the user wishes to wash the bands or update the sleeves. Once on a horse the Magnetic strips are unable to be removed as the strips wrap around the horses leg. If Streamz strips are misplaced then this is entirely out of the control of StreamZ and as such free replacements will not be issued.

The fastening within the EQU StreamZ requires a level of maintenance and care. Warranty is available on defects with the fastening. We have had issues in the past with the material used and updated the material to the strongest on the market to rectify this issue. Proof of purchase will be required for warranty defects, damaged or lost bands are not covered under warranty.

Where and when to wear the bands: The EQU bands are developed to be used pre or post exercise and not to be used in active work (there is slight movement under the fetlock joint). The EQU bands should be completely removed or worn above the fetlock in soft ground conditions, further still if the ground is soft enough to allow the bands to be submerged then the bands should be removed and only used when turned in. In wet/muddy conditions it is advised to remove them completely to avoid the bands being submerged and make sure the bands are fitted evenly ensuring that the Velcro hooks cannot touch the horses skin. Lost bands are not covered under warranty and single bands are not available for purchase.

Advice: If the horse is ‘turned in’ we advise that the bands are placed below the fetlock (around the pastern); the artery is slightly closer to the outside of the skin under the fetlock joint. If the horse is ‘turned out’ then we would advise that the bands are placed above the fetlock joint (around the cannon bone). We recommend that the bands are placed on the near fore and off hind legs, no matter what the purpose of use, although it generally makes little difference

ABOVE Fetlock use when turned out in soft ground conditions or whilst in light work.
BELOW Fetlock – use below fetlock when turned in or on box rest. (Slightly better reaction when placed below, but movement is found below the fetlock)

Tip: We have a horse who we like to turn out with his bands on, even if it’s wet. We also noticed that when alone he would often get his teeth under the bands and rip them off. We caught him peering through the hedge like nature detectives. We solved this issue by tricking him! We now put his bands on him, whilst making him look the other way, and then wrap a few layers of vet wrap over the top. He’s none the wiser, and the bands stay on!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate in emailing our support team; [email protected].

  1. Before wearing the Streamz all 4 legs would swell up!

    Claire

    They’ve definitely stopped my horses legs from swelling up. Especially at the moment when she’s having to be in a lot due to all the rain. She’s had 3 days in and no swelling at all. 😁 Before wearing the Streamz all 4 legs would swell up!

  2. Part of Tysons rehabilitation program.

    Christina Hutchinson

    Tyson had surgery on his front DDFT in August and I have used Streamz magnetic bands as part of his recovery program. He has been on box rest and wearing them 24/7 since his surgery and is now on his exercise rehabilitation plan. Two follow ups in and Tyson is sound, still early days but our vet is really happy with his progress! I’m sure the bands will have contributed towards this.

  3. I believe these bands have helped and give them 4 out of 5!

    Sue Sayers

    My 25 year old mare had X-rays and was diagnosed with arthritis in both fetlocks. I bought the StreamZ magnetic bands together with other supplements. She wore them above the fetlock while out in the field but had to have them below the fetlock at night as her legs were filling so much. A second opinion also found navicular changes in one foot. I believe these bands have helped and give them 4 out of 5!

  4. Read the Leaflet!!

    Jill

    I placed the bands on opposing diagonals as per the instructions. After about 3 weeks the front unbanded leg seemed to be swelling overnight so removed all bands and gave the legs a rest. Tried again after a week & this happened again but with no sign of lameness so put it down to one of those things.
    As we are not in full training at the moment, cant say I’ve noticed much difference but will have a better idea by June onwards once the endurance season is underway.

  5. They do work! On overnight.

    Amanda Maine-Tucker

    Used on Dutch bred PSG dressage horse post very serious DDFT injury. They have been a big help! We positioned the bands below the fetlocks and fairly loose to allow for movement and they are on every night from 9pm until 10am the next day.

  6. Good product used to aid my horses lameness.

    Gail Meader

    Bought a month ago as horse had forelimb lameness and a friend had suggested i buy these. Lameness was being caused due to neck issues and decided I would use these bands as they could only benefit my horse. Good fit, but sadly one band began to fray so I contacted the support team and they dealt with this quickly and efficiently and replaced for us.

  7. EQU StreamZ, your horses will love you for it!

    Sharon Cracknell

    Where do I start. I am one of the most sceptical people when it comes to trying new products with all the promises made, but, these fetlock bands are “Fantastic”! I always feed my animals the best products and supplements but my old boy of 26 was struggling with his arthritis and I was in the edge of pent*san injections, a path I really didn’t want to go down. It took me a while to think “well maybe I’ll give the bands a go” and I’m so pleased and excited I did! There is such a huge improvement in his movement and he is so much more comfortable. It’s lovely to see. The great thing about the bands is that one size fits all, so easy to use and they can be left on 24/7. What more can you ask? I never endorse a product unless I’m 100% satisfied and I am definitely that! Give them a try, don’t wait as long as I did, your horses will love you for it! One happy customer 🙂

  8. Fetlock stiffness!

    Judy Rorison

    My 28 year old ex-showjumper is stiff on his hind legs and are definitely happier with his Streamz bands on. He used to stand on his back heels in his bed and has stopped doing that since wearing these bands!

  9. Cali the pony was showing signs of pain.

    Ksenia Quartermain

    I started using these bands on my daughters pony, Cali. Cali is a sweetheart and was previously foundered so she has been a bit sore. Since using the StreamZ bands she seems to be walking with less pain. I’m impressed at how they’ve held up being on 24/7….so far we/re loving them!
