Components of the IoniCare System
The key components of the IoniCare System are:
generator--a small battery
powered device that generates the treatment signal that provides the
therapeutic benefit. It will support two treatment sites
Treatment Pad--a replaceable
Pad that applies the signal from the generator to the site being
Return Element--attracts the signal from the Treatment
Pad through the treated site to complete the circuit. It is
positioned on the underside of a proprietary Surcingle.
Surcingle--specifically designed to ensure that
the Return Element maintains proper contact with the animal for
effective signal flow. It holds two Return Elements and has a pocket
for the Signal Generator.
Conductive Gel--assures a good signal flow between the
Treatment Pad/Return Element and the skin
IoniCare System Operation
After the components are positioned, the Generator is
turned on and the level of the signal is increased until the animal reacts to the
tingling sensation. The signal level is then reduced slightly so the horse no longer
senses the signal.
The Signal Generator sends a specifically pulsed
signal through a flexible wire to the Treatment Pad covering the treatment site. The
signal bathes the treatment site creating the desired therapeutic electrical field and then flows through the body to the Return Element in the Surcingle.

A Unique Way To Treat Orthopedic Problems
In brief here's how the IoniCare® System 3 works with the joint's natural healing
A healthy joint creates an
electrical field when in use.
field activates natural repair and regeneration in the joint tissue.
When a joint is compromised by
osteoarthritis and other joint problems, the electrical field
strength is decreased, reducing repair and regeneration activity.
The compromised joint cannot
repair itself as fast as it wears out, resulting in a gradual
degeneration of the joint.
The System is designed to mimic the joint's
natural electrical field, increasing
the repair and regeneration, allowing the joint to - in effect -
