How Does Vitafloor Work?
The Vitafloor works by sending vertical vibrations, varying between 30-50 repetitions per second, through the whole body. This whole body vibration therapy creates ‘instability’ and thereby causes each muscle to make reflexive actions to stabilise themselves.
The vibrations replicate the concussion effect of a natural movement without placing additional strain, wear and tear, on joints and ligaments. Therefore the Vitafloor offers a safe and non-invasive therapy that not only benefits the feet, but also provides benefits to the internal organs, musculature, fascia, and all the way up to the horse’s topline.
The Vitafloor vibrating floor system comprises a 5 inch platform with a layer of rubber on top. A waterproofing collar on all fitted models prevents bedding and fluid from finding its way underneath the platform. The internal motors cause the gentle vibrations, at different frequencies depending on use – training or rehabilitation.
The system is fully computerised and has a timer which automatically shuts off the program when it has finished.
All models are safe and user-friendly. Vitafloor can potentially save many man-hours of work and requires only the minimum of maintenance.

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.
