Get a free trial from Team TheraPlate, an independent distributor of the TheraPlate Revolution Therapy Platform. After several years of amazing results at our boarding stable (Traumhof), we decided to help distribute this great product.
The "TheraPlate" utilizes a low-amplitude orbital motion for rehabilitation and sports conditioning. The subject (person, horse, dog, cat, etc) simply stands, sits, or lies on the platform. The platform's motion causes the muscles to rhythmically contract and release, relaxing the tissues while enhancing muscle tone and increasing circulation. The increased circulation, in turn, has a plethora of benefits, ranging from improved healing rates of many soft-tissue injuries to better hoof growth to increasing bone density.
Several sizes of platforms are available, ranging from a 2' x 2' unit for humans and/or small animals to stand on up to a 3' x 7' unit for horses. Complete details and specifications can be found on the Products Page.
Because we believe so strongly in its benefits, and want as many people (and horses and cats and dogs and...) as possible to have access to it, we are offering a free three-week trial at your home or facility. The unit will be shipped directly to you and we will help you set it up (in person if you're in the Seattle area, on the phone otherwise). In the unlikely event you decide it's not right for you, we'll have it picked up, all at no cost to you.

Several years ago (2011) we purchased a TheraPlate to help the rehab horses at Traumhof maintain muscle tone and bone density and to help them recover from various injuries. We have been very pleased with the results, not only for these purposes but even more so in other areas. For example, it has helped us resolve many mild colics (and some that appeared quite serious) with little or no vet intervention. It has also helped reduce abcess recurrences in horses with a long history of chronic abcesses, healed hoof granulation where nothing else has helped, and accelerated hoof growth in multiple cases. See our Horse Page for more details on the benefits of the TheraPlate for horses.
Various forms of vibration therapy have well-documented track records, with hundreds of peer-reviewed studies, for helping both humans and animals recover from injuries as well as develop and maintain healthy bodies. We particularly like the TheraPlate's unique 4 Zone Vortex Wave design for its zero impact experience. Under the rubber top there are four separate metal plates, one for each of the horse's legs. Each plate is driven in a planar orbital motion by a separate motor. The controller allows you to vary the frequency of this motion. These fast, tiny motions travel through the entire body, but there is no vertical compression or rocking, so no risk of further injury or aggravating existing conditions.
Whether the horses recognize the benefits or just like how it makes them feel, it's clear that they enjoy using the TheraPlate - they eagerly rush to it, step up onto the plate, and stand happily for the duration of their session. We (and many of our clients, visitors, farriers, etc) also enjoy using the TheraPlate ourselves to help relax sore muscles, tight backs, tired feet, and everything else that comes along with a horse farm!
