Thermal Studies on StreamZ

EQU Streamz thermal studies using latest thermal infrared technology to show how Streamz creates no heatcarried out by Thermology UK (Digatherm)Independent Studies
EQU StreamZ thermal imaging has proven that StreamZ is unique to traditional magnetic therapy and that no heat is created allowing the bands to be used 24/7 and for long periods of time as the technology is non-invasiveUsing the most advanced systemsThermal Infrared Study

Veterinary Thermal Imaging provides a valuable addition to existing diagnostic tools such as X-rays, MRI scans and Ultrasound and provides a visual tool for owners and professionals monitoring or treating injury, illness or disease. Very distinctive thermal patterns can be seen where joint injuries or degeneration is present, or has been present in the horse. In chronic pain syndromes or chronic degenerative processes like arthritis, there is initially an increase in blood flow which then creates a further increase in joint temperature.

The Thermal Imaging camera used in these studies was the only nitrogen cooled camera in the UK that was licensed for medical and veterinary use at the time of the study. The very latest on the market and extremely sensitive, able to pin point subtle temperature changes associated with joint problems – one of the biggest causes of lameness in a horse.

StreamZ differs to traditional magnetic therapy. Magnets create a pulse which in turns heats up that localised area, helping to increase blood flow. The aim of using this technology was to show how StreamZ does not create heat allowing the bands to be used for long periods of time, 24/7 if required.

Streamz run trials and studies using independant specialists in thermal imagining and infrared techniques in horses and dogs as technology shows that Streamz unique magnetic therapy creates no heat and is suitable for long term 24/7 use using a non invasive and unique process

SPLINT INJURY (5 DAY STUDY)

Independently taken by Thermology UK (Digatherm)

EQU StreamZ Thermal Imaging Main Image showing no increase in heat in fetlock splint compressor

The study below was carried out on a horse with a recent splint injury, over a 5 day period. These images were taken using the only nitrogen cooled camera in the UK licensed for medical and veterinary use. Three separate colour palettes were used to indicate the changes in heat and inflammation clearly. After taking the initial images EQU StreamZ fetlock bands were fitted on both fetlocks.

5 days later the camera took a second shot of the same area to establish what impact the bands had on the inflammation both within the splint and the surrounding area. The results speak for themselves! 

Please note that thermal imaging diagnosis is not yet clinically approved. The study conditions were not temperature controlled, the purpose was to visually show how heat is not produced and how that bands can be used when the horse is rehabilitating or in recovery.

Equipment used: Digatherm IR Pad 640×512, 20MK, +/-1degree – The most technologically advanced veterinary IR tablet on the planet and the only one of its kind in the UK. (at the time of study)

STUDY CONCLUSION:

StreamZ technology shows a significant reduction in localised heat found in splint region, and surrounding area. This supports StreamZ claims that the technology can be used directly after exercise when applying heat should be avoided, or for long periods of time. Further studies should be taken to establish the differences in StreamZ technology versus more traditional magnetic products.

STREAMZ versus MAGNETS

Independently taken by Thermology UK (Digatherm)

StreamZ Thermal imaging study on streamz versus veredus traditional magnetic therapy in horse to aid recovery and rehabilitation as no heat is created and suitable for 24/7 use

This study was carried out as a visual aid to show how StreamZ technology greatly differs to traditional magnetic therapy which uses heat to aid the wearer. 

The horse within the image below was a perfectly healthy horse with no issues relating to an imbalance in heat across four legs. On the front legs one EQU StreamZ fetlock band and one Veredus 4-hour Magnetik Boot (£219.99 RRP) were attached, and the same placed diagonally on the hind legs. Images were taken as the bands were fitted and four hours later. 

The basis of the study was to show that after 4 hours use (maximum advised on Veredus) that StreamZ created significant difference to traditional magnetic products and that no increase in heat had been created by the StreamZ technology. 

Veredus Magnetik boots were selected as they claim to use 2400-gauss magnets which at the time of the study were the highest gauss (and most expensive) on the market. Please note that this does not signify a clinical study but a visual aid. 

Equipment used: Digatherm IR Pad 640×512, 20MK, +/-1degree – The most technologically advanced veterinary IR tablet on the planet and the only one of its kind in the UK. (at the time of study)

STUDY CONCLUSION:

Thermal imaging studies show that StreamZ technology differs greatly to traditional magnetic therapy, creating no increase in heat to the subject and a non invasive form of therapy.
