WHAT IS EQUINE DYNAMIC COMPRESSION THERAPY?
REVOLUTIONARY DYNAMIC COMPRESSION THERAPY FOR EQUINE RECOVERY
The EQ Press™ is patented pneumatic dynamic compression device, designed to fit the contours of the front and hind legs of a horse all the way up to the elbows and stifles. The EQ Press™ is able to actively push lymph fluid up and out of our horse's legs in order to help remove waste products and metabolites, reduce inflammation, enhance the immune response, and promote overall health.
BENEFITS OF EQUINE DYNAMIC COMPRESSION
• Reduce post exercise/trauma recovery time
• Accelerate the removal of metabolic wastes & excess fluid from the body
• Alleviate swelling & discomfort
• Improve the circulatory system
• Increase range of motion
• Play an important role in Rehabilitation (Rest | Ice | Compress | Elevate)
For three years, Doro suffered from chronic lymphantisis with a thick leg that had excessive swelling and nothing was able to help him.
EXCEPT for the EQ Press, with continual use over:
- 4x Months
- 4x Weekly EQ Press sessions
- 2x Daily of 45 minutes each
See the difference that the EQ Press treatments have made.
"The circumference of the leg in multiple locations from his pastern up to his hock has decreased and the appearance of the leg is much healthier. His silhouette looks more like a normal leg again and the feeling of the skin over the tissues is more loose and mobile instead of being tight. Even if he has not used the EQ Pres for over 15 hours, his legs are still improved.

Useful as a warm-up and recovery modality, the EQ Press™ can enhance athletic performance by quickly clearing metabolic waste products from your horses body. It can also reduce limb swelling end edema.
The EQ Press™ can help prevent and treat painful and debilitating conditions of the lymphatic system, including lymphangitis and cellulitis. These conditions are very costly to treat, and can even be fatal.
The EQ Press™ can both prepare and help your horse recovery from surgery by stimulation immune function, improving circulation to muscles and tissues, promoting lymphatic drainage, and reducing swelling and edema.
EQ PRESS FAQ'S
What is Dynamic Compression Therapy?
Dynamic compression, also known as pneumatic compression, is an alternative therapy used to increase circulation and move lymphatic fluid uptake. The therapeutic device is typically composed of an inflatable sleeve and pump unit. The sleeve is inflated and deflated in a sequential pattern during the treatment process. This helps to increase circulation by increasing venous return which in turn provides greater cardiac output, more blood available to be pumped around the body. Dynamic compression also alleviates fluid buildup and improve lymphatic flow.
What is the science behind the EQ Press?
Dynamic compression technology is backed up by over 40 years of research in the human medical and athletic areas. Additionally, the EQ Press team is actively working on researching the various applications for horses, with great preliminary results. The EQ Press is truly “Human Tested, Animal Approved”.
Why are horses prone to lymphatic issues/swelling?
The lower legs of horses have no musculature, lymphatic fluid can easily pool there. At times, disruption may happen to the lymphatic system, whether through inactivity or strenuous work, leaving a large amount of waste that needs to be cleared from the legs. This extra work can tax the lymphatic system, leading to swelling and inflammation. The EQ Press essentially acts as extra musculature, pushing this fluid up and out of the horse’s legs
Can EQ Press be used for ‘Lymphangitis’?
Lymphangitis is an inflammatory condition of the lymphatic system that affects many horses and is most commonly due to a bacterial infection. EQ Press™ is a dynamic compression technology that propels fluid up and out of the horse’s legs and into the bloodstream. As waste products and metabolites are removed, inflammation is reduced, and swelling decreases.
Can you use the EQ Press on healthy horses?
Prevention is better than cure. During high-intensity work, lactic acid and other waste products build up in the body. After the workout, these waste products and additional fluid can settle in your horse’s legs. This can cause discomfort and slow the recovery process. EQ Press™ dynamic compression system helps to remove waste product built up in your horse’s legs by activating the lymphatic system and moving waste. The compression pushes excess fluid out of the legs, removing harmful metabolites, whilst increasing blood flow, speeding up the recovery process.
HOW THE EQ PRESS WORKS
The EQ Press garments are full-limb sleeves with air chambers inside that inflate with air applying a massage from bottom to the top. Overlapping chambers and patented technology ensure accurate pressure across the entire surface area. The motion and direction of flow improves circulation and decongests the affected areas enhancing lymphatic flow. The active massage accelerates the removal of wastes and toxins promoting cleansing of the body.
The peristaltic massage enhances blood circulation along with lymphatics and promotes adequate oxygen levels in the blood and better nourishment of the cells.
The compression therapy increases lymphatic drainage accelerating removal of waste products from the body.
The compression massage helps removes toxins produced during exercise.
Clearing any bruising and swelling in the tissues reduces athletic and post-trauma recovery time.
Can be used for warm-up and recovery enhancing athletic performance through increased circulation.
