The RevitaVet IR2 from RevitaVet Therapy Systems is a wearable, class 2 laser offering red-light and infrared light therapy for your horse to promote healing for skin lesions and soft tissue injuries. Light therapy with infrared diodes offers many benefits, most notably that it stimulates the release of Nitric Oxide from hemoglobin in the bloodstream. This happens locally when light therapy is applied, and blood flow increases at the same point. Many beneficial chemical reactions happen at the cellular level when the light is applied, which all promote increased healing times. Increased Nitric Oxide in the body increases the body’s anti-inflammatory response, tissue regeneration, and pain reduction. The IR2 comes with a rechargeable battery that lasts for multiple treatments. It will cycle through 7 different frequencies or allow you to set 5-minute increments on specific frequencies, making this a very customizable option for your barn. The unit will come with program suggestions depending on the type of preventative therapy or injury your horse is recovering from. Best of all, light therapy works complimentary to many other therapy modalities, including PEMF. Use this in between stronger laser sessions from your veterinarian to increase the therapeutic benefits your horse is receiving, giving them the best opportunity to recover.
