The Vitafloor® equine vibrating floor system is the only whole-body vibration therapy solution designed exclusively for horses. The highly effective, and fully automated, vibration plate is used as a stand-alone platform or can be integrated into a stable. This non-invasive, low impact and high performing therapy is easy to integrate into the daily routine of horses and provides a range of benefits including, increase circulation, improved bone density, hoof growth and the relief of joint and muscle soreness.
Designed exclusively for horses, Vitafloor is based on the long-established principle of Whole Body Vibration Therapy, originally developed by NASA to help astronauts maintain muscle tone and bone density in space. The concept has also been widely adopted in the human fitness industry in the form of the power plate or vibro plate.

Equestrians and vets around the world have noted remarkable results in the recovery of suspensory and tendon injuries when using the Vitafloor as part of a structured rehabilitation program.
Most notably, riders have found that horses simply move better when receiving regular Vitafloor therapy, due to increased blood circulation to warm and relax muscles.
Research has also evidenced that Vitafloor increases bone density and improves hoof quality. This is in addition to helping with joint and muscle soreness. These benefits combine to result in a more supple, looser, stronger and more flexible horse.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
My Vitafloor is an intrinsic part of our training and fitness programme. All the horses on the yard use it every week throughout the year; this includes the hunters, eventers and my children's ponies. I feel the floor improves muscle stability and tone. It is a vital piece of equipment for Team Taylor and I would not be without it.
The Vitafloor® is a great addition for our competition horses. It really helps to keep them in top shape, sound and healthy!
We use Vitafloor® every day and it helps our horses to recover after tough training.
The Vitafloor® is very user-friendly and practical in design. Since using it, my horses are fitter and more relaxed with improved musculature. It also helps prevent tying-up. …our family-owned racehorse ‘Mikado’ has shown great improvement using Vitafloor®.
Peas & Carrots became racehorse of the year twice in Sweden with help from our Vitafloor®!
We use the Vitafloor® on all our trotters and it makes them stronger and smoother.
I can definitely feel the lack of strength, flexibility and especial lack of muscle mass that Henry is displaying this year compared to last year when he was on a Vitafloor each day.
