Equine Infrared Red Light Therapy Solarium      

please note:    
this following article was written in relation to horse husbandry in Europe and other locations where grazing/paddock time is limited and horses spend the majority of their time indoors 

About 30 years ago the first horse solarium with spotlights which were effective in their purpose was launched in the market.  
A lot of riders, breeders, veterinarians and other experts in equestrian sports recognized the healing effects of infrared radiation through the solarium, so the device made a successful debut. 

Artificial Solar Lights such as the Horse Solarium have an overall positive health and well-being influence on horses and any animal, so the infrared heat radiation instrument was back then, mainly used during the cold seasons with limited daylight - to provide essential exposure and absorption in a complimentary manner when daylight was lacking.  

A large part of today’s horse husbandry is also based on stable management with often limited grazing. 

Especially in the winter months, horses spend most of the day in their boxes and the movement of the horse often takes place only in the indoor riding arena, so that the natural sunlight from day time, warmth and fresh air is often missing.
These circumstances do not correspond to a horse’s natural way of life, and the risk of deficiency symptoms (e.g. the formation of vitamin D) should not be underestimated.

In the meantime, a horse-specific solarium can used all year round, because horses benefit in many ways from the stimulating radiation and warming solar lights.

Introduction to Healing through Infrared Red Light Therapy 

Infrared lamps generate heat radiation to improve the blood circulation in the horse’s muscles.  
The heat of the infrared lamps promotes muscle suppleness and elasticity, and can be used for minimising any swelling, inflammation and promote new cell regeneration especially for horses in work, during/after heavy training or competition.

LED IRLT stimulates the recovery of the horse in many positive non-harmful non-invasive ways and is 100% SAFE for humans and all animals  

🔺please note do not use whilst pregnant consult with your health professional prior to use🔺

Solar lights before and after training

Our high-quality mobile EQUINE LED INFRARED RED LIGHT THERAPY solariums or the new VETNPRO Equine-specific products  keep horses at optimal performance health before and after training, as well as assisting with the maintenance of a constant body temperature during the colder season.
Skeletal, Muscular, CNS, Lymphatic Systems, plus all other equine physiological functions benefit, improve & recover quicker, resulting in less downtime

More importantly, by including just 15mins a day of IRLT in your horses’ routine, can result in overall less injury, time out of work, and/or the reduction/elimination of other causes of physical stress to your horse.

Regeneration of new cells is promoted by improved circulation and blood flow enabling natural healing  

The overal feeling of wellness to the horse and all the benefits of IRLT assist with an improved general demeanour- should the horse express it is suffering from aches and pain in this manner

  1. What is a horse solarium and a mobile horse solarium?

A horse solarium refers to a non-medical device that emits infrared light and heat for the purpose of enhancing the wellbeing of a horse. Instead of a static infrastructure, a mobile horse solarium is easy to move, store and handle, making it easier to manage the health of your horses.

  1. Why do I need a horse solarium?

A large part of today’s horse husbandry is based on pure stable management with limited outdoor grazing. As horses spend a lot of time in their stables during winter, a mobile horse solarium will provide enough light to keep them warm and healthy. It will ensure that the horses are not getting any chills or discomfort in their muscles.

It will also get you better results on the race track, so make sure to check out Sinoco horse solarium before your horse steps into the track.

  1. How does it work?

A horse solarium imitates the infrared light from the sun. The solar lights are good for the horses; the best-known benefit of sunlight is its ability to boost the body’s vitamin D supply; most cases of vitamin D deficiency are due to lack of outdoor sun exposure.

It is also common that people use heat to treat muscle, joint pain and stiffness for years. The therapeutic benefits of heat and solar lights provided by a solarium includes reducing pain and muscle spasm after injury, promoting healing by stimulating blood flow, improving muscle tone, lessening “warm up” time before work, and many more.

  1. What are the benefits of a horse solarium?

A horse solarium relaxes the muscles, so pain caused by tension or stress reduces. It promotes blood circulation in the horse’s body. As the blood vessels expand, more blood flows to the muscles, promoting inflamed muscle recovery.

The solar lights affect a horse’s skin receptors, which are in direct contact with the brain. Under the influence of warmth, the emitted pain signals diminish, which helps decrease the pain.

  1. How much is it for a mobile horse solarium?

It is affordable, easy to install, reliable, durable and comes with 3 years of warranty, promising a very high cost-performance ratio. Enquire now!

  1. How should I install the solarium?

Just like a lighting fixture in your sitting room, you can simply hang it on the stable ceiling or put it over a stable foundation, to be used with some distance from the horse because it emits heat.

Lightweight, portable and packed full of power, Sinoco mobile horse solarium is thoughtfully designed for regular use to the benefits of your horses.

  1. How often and how long should I use the mobile horse solarium for?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer. Horses are special and different, just like humans. Not all horses have the same personality and preference. Based on their physique, they need specialized care.

The mobile horse solarium can help the horses’ muscles warm up and prevents strain, before and after exercise. Instead of clothing, using solar lights and heat for horse in the cold weather keeps the animals relaxed and resting.

When injury occurs, the infrared from sunlight or solar lights can enhance and improve circulation for a horse’s body, accelerating transmission of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissues which promote healing. A mobile horse solarium helps alleviate aching, reduce inflammation, and protect against oxidative stress.

Because low wavelength heat radiation and solar lights generally do not have adverse health effects on horses, so it is fine to expose the horse under the horse solarium for as long as it feels comfortable.

  1. Why should I choose VETNPRO  mobile horse solarium?

  • Reduced training fatigue: A 2011 study revealed that red light at 660 nm combined with 830 nm NIR light can delay the development of fatigue in the muscles, and enhance skeletal muscle performance. (Athletes, take note.) This is one of many studies that suggest using more than one wavelength together could have profound benefits.

  • Reduced inflammation: In a study investigating the effects of red light therapy on pleurisy in rats, the 660 nm wavelength was found to induce an anti-inflammatory effect

  • Improved bone healing: A 2015 study found that red light at 660 nm was even more effective than the 830 nm wavelength in increasing ATP production in vitro and an initial acceleration of callus formation in the bone fracture healing process.

  • Reduced neuropathic pain: A 2014 study investigating sciatic nerve pain in rats found that the red 660 nm wavelength significantly helped to reduce pain.

  • Accelerated wound healing: In 2013, researchers conducting this studyfound that the red 660 nm wavelength increased the formation of new blood vessels and enhanced collagen deposition to help in the healing of wounds.

On their own, the 630 nm and 660 nm red light wavelengths are highly beneficial. But you’ll get the best results by combining shorter and longer wavelengths in the visible and invisible light spectrum.

The Benefits of Near-Infrared Light Wavelengths

The “best” NIR wavelength for deep-tissue treatment is typically believed to be 850 nm, which is near the upper range of NIR light. Here’s a small sampling of the findings of various studies and clinical trials on the effects of the most widely studied wavelengths ranging from 810 to 850 nm.

An especially exciting discovery of several studies is near-infrared light’s promise in enhancing brain health — including treatment of brain disorders and recovery from brain injuries.

The 810 nm wavelength offers a unique array of neurological benefits. Many forward-thinking scientists share the belief that NIR light therapy will become a prominent medical treatment for brain disorders in the near future. 

  • Improved recovery from stroke in certain patients: One studyconducted with stroke patients showed that 810 nm NIR light wavelengths provided neuroprotective benefits and improved recovery among sufferers of moderate to severe strokes. Five days after the stroke, there was significant improvement among those who had been treated with 810 nm light therapy, compared to those who hadn’t. Ninety days post-stroke, 70 percent of the treated patients had a successful outcome, compared with only 51 percent of the control group.

  • Improved recovery from traumatic brain injury: As confirmed by this pilot study in 2007, 810 nm NIR light therapy has been shown in animal models to be particularly effective in promoting recovery from traumatic brain injuries and reducing long-term neurological damage.

  • Interest in the ability of near-infrared light to support improvement in psychiatric disorders goes as far back as this 2009 pilot study co-authored by world-renowned red light therapy expert Michael Hamblin. Prescription drugs have long been recognized as having a limited ability to assist individuals suffering from psychiatric conditions, and often come with a host of unwanted side effects. In this study, 810 nm NIR light applied to the forehead was shown to help patients suffering from major depression and anxiety, with no adverse side effects.
  • A 2018 review of several studiesconfirmed the neuroprotective effect of near-infrared light on the brain.

Other benefits of NIR wavelengths include:

  • Improved healing and recovery: A 2017 study of soccer players showed that the 810 nm wavelength applied before activity enhanced muscular performance and post-exercise recovery.

  • Accelerated wound healing: This 2014 study found that 810 nm wavelengths helped expedite wound healing in diabetic rats, which enabled the tissue to granulate more rapidly. A study from 2013 suggests that the 830 nm wavelength accelerates healing in wounds and helps to ward off infection. In this small study, which involved five patients with various types of wounds, all five of them experienced wound healing, controlled infection, and lessened discomfort during treatment periods ranging from one to eight weeks (depending on the severity of the wound).

  • Improved outcomes following plastic surgery: During a 2015 study, South Korean researchers found that swift exposure to 830 nm wavelengths after aesthetic surgery hastens recovery, reduces downtime, and enhances the results of surgery by reducing swelling, infection, bruising, and pain.
  • Improved bone repair and growth:A 2008 study by researchers from Brazil demonstrated that 830 nm light therapy improved bone repair by stimulating new bone growth. 

  • Faster return-to-play after injury:The ability to return to play as swiftly as possible after injury or trauma is a key concern for any amateur or professional athlete. This 2016 studyconfirmed that 830 nm NIR  light therapy significantly and safely reduced the wait time before injured athletes could return to play. Over a 15-month period, 395 injuries were treated with 830 nm light therapy, including sprains, strains, ligament damage, tendonitis, and contusions. The study authors found that the treatment successfully brought about accelerated healing in all wounds at different stages, and successfully controlled secondary infection.

  • Enhanced muscle recovery after a hard workout: A 2016 study co-authored by Hamblin observed the use of 850 nm wavelengths on athletes and found that the use of NIR light increased muscle mass after training and decreased inflammation and oxidative stress in muscle biopsies.

  • Orthodontics and tooth alignment: A clinical trial published in 2016 confirms that using the 850 nm wavelength supported faster realignment of teeth for patients undergoing orthodontics. 

As valuable as these results are, it bears repeating that better results could be expected by combining wavelengths in the red and NIR spectrum. Let’s explore that now.

What Is the Best Wavelength and Spectrum for Red Light Therapy?

Ultimately, this comes down to one question: Which wavelength will give you the results you want?

The short answer is that you’ll get the best results by using red (610–660 nm) and near-infrared (820–850 nm)
