You may have heard about our Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad, but aren't sure what the benefits are for your horse. We are confident that your equine partner will feel and perform their best after spending time in this Poll Pad and here's why: The Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad works by using a combination of medical-grade magnets, Far Infrared Technology (FIR), and negative ions to help support your horse’s body in its natural healing process. The Smart Poll Pad uses a unique blend of fibers that work together to deliver positive effects to your horse’s soft tissues and joints. This allows for improved circulation, decreased inflammation and increased mobility.
The Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad is designed to provide targeted acupressure relief. The two magnets (2400 gauss) are positioned in the center of the pad to stimulate key acupressure points on the poll or brow area (Governing Vessel 24). This can help to relieve tension and stress, and promote better circulation. The Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad is a great tool to ensure relief of head-tilting, TMJ, neck stiffness and more.
In ancient (and current) Chinese medicine, acupuncture is performed by using one’s own blood to re-inject over targeted acupuncture points. The reasoning for this method is because the body takes quite some time to re-absorb its own blood after being placed in targeted areas—Therefore, prolonging the benefits. We have selected these magnets to serve that affect by pulling the blood to those targeted areas which will continually stimulate those areas during and after the Smart Poll Pad is worn.
Each magnet is enclosed in a soft cushion for enhanced comfort. The Poll Pad helps harmonize bodily functions safely and naturally stimulating recovery time, promoting blood circulation, increasing oxygen flow, and ultimately reducing pain and stiffness.
The material is breathable with wicking qualities an features easy on-off Velcro enclosures for use on halter and or bridle.
You can use the Smart Therapeutic Poll Pad on the poll, noseband, chinstrap, or browband, or cheeks on your halter or bridle. It can also be used across the browband to greatly help with anxiety, or across the poll area to help with overall stiffness and tension. For TMJ issues, use across the cheeks.
“I love this poll pad! My thoroughbred had a very stiff poll and it resulted in a heavy headset. I am venturing my way through the upper levels of dressage and I needed help!! My horse now carries himself like the upper level dressage horse that he is. I wish I would have found this poll pad years ago! I recommend this product to anyone that is considering. I use it for every ride, and even at schooling shows. Thanks Benefab® for helping my horse and I succeed!”
