About UltrOZ

UltrOZ Elite is the only wearable therapeutic ultrasound system for the maintenance and rehabilitation of equine athletes. UltrOZ Elite represents the next generation in safe and convenient ultrasound therapy that owners and riders can apply themselves, taking clinical therapy out of the doctor’s office and into the barn.

Ultrasound therapy has been used by veterinarians for decades, and by changing the way ultrasound is delivered, UltrOZ has eliminated the risk of thermal damage and created a safe and easy tool that promotes healing in tendon and ligament injuries; splints; muscles strain and tear; fracture and bone chip repair; minor strains, bumps, bruises, and inflammation. UltrOZ Elite also provides pain relief and can be used on a daily basis for maintenance.

UltrOZ Elite has been field tested by veterinarians and equine therapists, and is now being used extensively on the elite horse show circuits, racetracks, and training facilities to help keep equine athletes at the top of their game. World-class riders like McLain Ward (show jumping), Steffen Peters (dressage) and Tim McQuay (reining) are among those whose horses have benefited from UltrOZ Elite.
