Hitech Therapy are priveledged to be involved in the cause of
assisting Rhino orphan Thor
Recently HiTech Therapy sold an Equissage Horse therapy device to:
Care for Wild Africa
It’s been a tough two weeks for black rhino orphan Thor. At the beginning of the month, he sustained injuries from another sub-adult male rhino. The Care for Wild Africa team noticed that Thor was becoming lame in his hind legs and called in the help of veterinary experts.
Dr. Johan Marais from 'Savings the Survivors,' Dr. Ferreira du Plessis and Professor Tony Shakespeare made a special visit to Care for Wild to examine Thor, who, at that time, was unable to stand without support. They determined that he had a spinal injury. The silver lining was that he was not paralyzed, so the team kept up hopes for his recovery.
With round-the-clock care and attention, after a week Thor managed to stand on his own legs! The team have left no stone unturned and discovered that Thor responded well to Equissage Cycloid Vibration Therapy (CVT) . Thanks to a generous supporter, he now has his very own Niagara Equissage (usually designed for horses),
The proven medical benefits include Increased Circulation and Lymphatic Drainage, Relaxation of Muscles and Increased Joint Mobility, which in turn, produces better movement and performance for both you and your horse, in this instance a young Rhino.
The Equissage Back Pack gives a deep tissue Cycloidal Massage to the entire animal. Due to the unique action of CVT, the Back Pack actively Improves Circulation, Relaxes Muscles while providing Passive Exercise and promotes Lymphatic Drainage.
For the best therapeutic benefits, the Hand Pack should always be used in conjunction with the Equissage Back Pack, as the action of the Hand Pack will be far more effective when the horse’s lymphatic system is already stimulated by the Back Pack. Speed up healing of many conditions and provides an ongoing treatment option for optimal result.
We hope that Thor keeps up the fighting spirit that we all love him for! As a tiny calf Thor almost died twice and fought his way back each time. He is showing the same resilience now, so we are in good hope.
