"I am using FES (Functional Electrical Stimulation) for horses with muscle spasms and atrophy and have found the technology to be very useful in restoring muscle function. Horses with sore backs and necks, and those with muscle loss due to injury or surgery, are benefiting from the use of FES"
- Dr. Philippe Benoit
Our practice has used the Equinew FES 310 unit for 1 year now. The unit is frequently requested from our horse show trainers just prior to departing for shows as well as utilizing it after the rigors of showing. We have found it to be profoundly effective for acute muscle spasm. Our primary uses are on backs and necks...

"The use of movement during rehabilitation is important, but the
movement must be correct. FES (Functional Electrical Simulation) produces true muscle movement
so you can obtain symmetrical, controlled motion so important in
quality rehabilitation protocols, even within the first days after
injury or surgery."
- Dr. Tracy Turner
"We have used the FES 310 system successfully to treat sore backs, tendon and ligament problems and kissing spine for over 11 years. We use it on a regular basis to prevent problems and keep the horses at peak performance.”
- Amber Mitchell, National Champion Grand Prix Jumper Rider & Trainer
"Klass became a more balanced horse with regular deep functional electric stim muscle treatments. The amazing benefits came after a flexor tendon injury. Dr. Schils worked to create a regular treatment regimen, which was responsible for her complete recovery. She has equal flex in both legs and is more fit then ever!"
"We can't thank you enough for the wonderful treatments you have given our horses. We are so glad we decided to treat two of our school horses after seeing the difference you made with the show horses. Your success continues to be amazing"
- Sunny Meadow Farm
"After the first 2-day FES treatment on Holly's back, she felt like a new horse! Her back was so "open" and lateral work actually felt easy. The arch in her jump felt longer and rounder. And she was very straight to the jump and on the landing side. And, her confidence was back!"
- Holly, Hunter and Event Horse
"The FES 310 is a solidly researched piece of equipment that has been very effective in our practice."
- Mimi Porter, Equine Therapist
"EQUINEW FES 310 is the ideal tool to treat deep muscle spasms. The therapeutic value of this device puts it in a class of its own. Plus the horses find it very comfortable."
