Frequently Asked Questions
What type of vibration does the Equivibe provide?
Vertical vibration. It is preferred by medical professionals, trainers and owners alike. Reason is, vertical vibration is natural movement. When you walk or run, your feet, arms, legs are moving up and down. Same for the horse or any animal. NOT sideways or in a circular motion. EquiVibe is designed in a way to reproduce vertical vibration. EquiVibe is a stable, stationary vibration platform. There is no wobble, no side to side movement, no circular motion. Those movements are not real world, they are not real physics. Medical professionals say, because of gravity, vertical motion on a stable platform is. Therefore it does not create stress, unlike other vibration platforms. Simply it provides micro hits of gravity that enhances the gravity that is already there in order to create the clinical and training compression that we need to excite our nerves, to mobilize joints and to strengthen our muscles to enhance our function.
What is Equivibe used for?
Performance, Rehabilitation and Preventive Care.
Who uses Equivibe?
Owners, trainers of thoroughbred racing including Triple Crown Winners. Also World Barrel Champions, Cutter Champions, Dressage, Reining, Jumper Champions, Harness Racing, Stables and more. As well as Veterinarians, Chiropractors, Therapy Centres, Equine Hospitals and more.
Where is the Equivibe built?
The EquiVibe is made and assembled 100% in the USA. They are built in Malcolm, Nebraska, and built the old fashion way, made to last. As far as we know, no other platform is 100% from the USA.
Why does it work so well?
A mechanical wave enhances gravity. We have gravity that pulls us down, it jams us into the earth and we have ground reaction force. Whole Body Vertical Vibration if properly mechanically designed, like the EquiVibe, gives us vertical hits of the same kind of thing from the bottom up. Therefore, if we are caught in the middle, which the body is between gravity and the whole body vertical vibration machine we also realize the benefits we are getting from the load of gravity, from the ability of the gravity to stimulate our bones, stimulate our muscles, stimulate our nerves, becomes a very, very powerful resource.
How does the Equivibe work?
Using an EquiVibe® is fairly simple. While properly positioned, the entire body vibrates due to the frequency of the platform, which causes the muscles to contract and stretch in order to sustain balance. These natural reflexes are involuntary and happen very rapidly, much like the human knee jerk reaction tested by doctors. Depending on level of fitness or rehab, the duration and frequency of use will vary. Before when a horse exercised they might be using 40% of their muscles, now with EquiVibe they are using nearly 100% of their muscles. Some muscles they may have never used before.
Does the Equivibe have variable speeds?
The EquiVibe has variable speeds from 10 to 60 Hertz. There are different issues where different speeds are used. For example, low levels have been proven to help with increasing lymphatic drainage, mid-range have helped issues such as bone density, higher ranges can reduce joint pain and enhance muscle strength. And the list of issues go on and on.

A healthy horse is a happy horse.
Whether you are looking to improve performance, aid your horses recovery or prevent further injury, our Equivibe products provide a range of amazing benefits for your horse.
Unlike other forms of vibration, EquiVibe saves joints from stress like rolling and twisting so that your horse can get better faster and stay better longer.
Designed with Whole Body Vertical Vibration to reduce muscle soreness and inflammation while increasing bone density, EquiVibe really gets the blood pumping. Improved circulation means better oxygenation of the tissues, removal of toxins and of metabolic waste. To reign things in: it enhances the body’s ability to heal itself, drug free – because when your horse feels how they should, the rest comes naturally.
