Fenwick Equestrian’s continued search for functional high performance fabrics has resulted in the production of the first "drug-free", lightweight, breathable therapeutic blanket using Liquid Titanium for horses. Since horses and people's bodies have titanium in them, the bodies' circulatory system is naturally stimulated, when it comes in contact with another source of titanium, like the athletic wrist and neck bands.
Our therapuetic blanket can be worn as a stable sheet or blanket liner with no adverse effects, since the Liquid Titanium process will only work with the body when needed.
Unlike other therapeutic blankets, Fenwick's can be left on 24/7.
Liquid Titanium produces Far Infrared Rays (FIR) which is a light energy and is considered essential to our well being and health. According to NASA, infrared stimulation is an ideal way to maintain cardiovascular conditioning. The energy is easily absorbed by the body through "resonance absorption", which is a "vibration" of our cells and FIR rays at the same frequency. Once these rays penetrate our body they activate the molecules and body cells thus producing a varying degree of warmth. Once the blood flow is improved the rest of our body can begin to heal itself. Thus begins a domino effect. Everything begins to function properly. Far Infrared Therapy is a natural, drug-free healing method to relieve pain, restore energy and boost the immune system.
Liquid Titanium also produces Negative Ions which have been proven to make us feel better by providing us with more energy and a positive mood. Think of when you are at the beach and the air smells so clean, or after a rain shower and everything seems so fresh. This gives you an idea of what negative ions can do for you. Then, think of how you feel being in a centrally heated or air-conditioned office all day, every day. You can't wait to get outdoors and breathe fresh air! A horse living in a stall in a city is like us being in an office all day and night. Statistics have proven that when an ionic air purifier is used in offices, people's performance increases by 25%. We can only absorb 15% through breathing, but by using the skin to absorb negative ions, we can absorb up to 100%.
Our cutting edge fabric allows one to continually wash and dry the product without diluting the qualities. This performance fabric functions equally as well on a wet horse as a dry horse. Also, there is no limit to the length of time one can leave this sheet on the horse. During the testing stages of this product, the sheet was successfully left on horses overnight with excellent results. Our Liquid Titanium sheet can be used as a blanket liner or a stable sheet.
"A healthy, relaxed and focused horse performs better!"
