"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, French Olympic Vet
"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 spasms..."
- Dr. Roland Thaler, Diplomate ACVSMR
"...We have been very successful in using the [FES] unit for treating back and neck pain as a result of muscle spasm and atrophy, as well as for building and maintaining topline musculature..."

"...The horses really enjoy their [FES] treatments, and with good case selection, the clients see an almost immediate improvement. From a chronically sore thoracolumbar region in a young jumper to infraspinatous atrophy after a scapular fracture - our FES has really benefited our patient base."
- Dr. Carrie Schlachter, IVCAc, IVASc
"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, Diplomate ACVSMR
"The FES 310 is a solidly researched piece of equipment that has been very effective in our practice."
- Mimi Porter, Author of the New Equine Sports Therapy
"FES technology has given us another tool in the management of back and neck pain in the horse. We also find FES application to be helpful in building top line strength and restoring motion. It is helpful to have a safe, cost effective, and non-invasive therapy option."
- Dr. Timothy Ober, USEF Show Jumping Team Veterinarian
"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."
- Janus Marquis, Physiotherapist US Show Jumping Team
"…We utilize the [FES] system on a daily basis, predominately for epaxial muscle tension/pain, sacroilliac region and gluteal muscle overuse pain/ tension… [it] allows for those affected patients to return to training sooner, pain free and able to maintain or strive to develop correct muscle balance, while remaining tension free…"
- Drs. Chad and Stephanie Davis, Davis Equine
