TRY BEFORE YOU BUY WITH CENTURION SYSTEMS!
All products from Centurion are available on trial for a three-month rental period, which is designed so that you can evaluate Centurion’s products over a short period of time. By doing the evaluation on particular problems, you can see first hand whether the Centurion therapy products can benefit your particular situation. Furthermore, sometimes a piece of therapy equipment is only needed for a short period of time.
Note that 100% of any payments paid during the three-month rental period are credited towards the purchase price.

Optimise respiratory function and racing performance
The horse is the ultimate athlete, having evolved to run, to run fast, and for quite significant distances. As such, the ability of the horse’s lungs to deliver fully oxygenated blood to the horse’s musculature is an absolute requirement for optimal racing performance.
When running at full speed, the horse’s respiratory rate is directly linked to its stride rate. At top speed the horse breathes in and out about once per second, with each breath moving 1,800 litres of air in and out of the lungs. And anything that interferes with this rapid movement of air, or the rapid transfer of oxygen across the microscopically thin lung tissue membranes and into the pulmonary blood vessels, will obviously interfere with the racing performance of the horse.
This is where the Centurion transpirator, with its totally drugless treatment, comes into play. For full details on this treatment and how it works visit www.centurion-systems.co.uk or tel: 00 44 (0)2894 433666 /07836 650647
Centurion veterinary therapy equipment has been acknowledged by horse owners, veterinary surgeons and physiotherapists throughout the world for the past 29 years as being at the forefront of the therapy their equipment is designed to address, including:
- Pulsed Magnetic Therapy
- Respiratory Therapy
- Laser Therapy
- Laser Acupuncture Therapy
- Cold Compression Therapy
These treatments are drugless and non-invasive, thereby obviating the need for exclusion from competition or removal from training schedules.
Therapy treatment can reduce the downtime for:
- Bone damage and fractures
- Sore backs
- Muscle tightness
- Tendon conditions
- Chronic pain
- Respiratory conditions
- Open wounds
Pulsed Magnetic Therapy
Veterinary professionals, animal physiotherapists and individual owners are enthusiastically using pulsed magnetic therapy (PMT) equipment for a wide range of musculoskeletal disease and degenerative conditions.
All animal organisms consist of a large number cells that function electrically. Cells have a basic electrical potential that is necessary for normal cellular metabolism. If there is no electrical potential then a cell is no longer viable. Damaged cells have an altered electrical potential. If the ions — electrically charged particles surrounding the cells — move into a pulsed magnetic field area, they are influenced by the rhythm of the pulsation, and ion exchange is enhanced resulting in greater oxygen utilisation, faster absorption of nutrients and elimination of waste products.
Treatment can be used on a variety of conditions including, but not limited, to:
- Orthopaedic trauma — fractures and bone damage
- Open wounds and circulatory problems
- Soft tissue problems — sore backs, muscle tightness, body soreness
- Acute inflammation
- Chronic pain
Hundreds of studies have been completed worldwide documenting the effectiveness of PMF. From these clinical experiments we know that pulsated magnetic fields can reduce pain sensations almost immediately. This is due in part to the increase in the oxygen partial pressure in the terminal tissue and the increase in the local perfusion and velocity of the capillary blood flow, alleviating the accumulation of metabolises due to small vascularisation and blood flow.
There are no contra-indications to magnetic therapy except in cases of haemorrhage. In contrast to chemical medicaments, there is no chance of overdosing, at least within the field range that is presently used for treatments.
The PMF therapy is heatless; therefore all implants (metal or plastic) can be treated. Hospitals use PMF therapy to accelerate the healing of patients with pins and bone plates because no damaging heat is produced in the implants. Fractures can be treated, even through a bandage, since magnetic fields permeate most materials.
The therapeutic effect of such treatments lasts for approximately six to eight hours. Most chronic cases require treatments twice a day. After five to ten days, the treatment regime can be reduced to one treatment daily or every other day. In chronic or extremely difficult cases, this may take longer.
There are several various Pulsed Magnetic units available, ranging from the Centurion Mini Pulse through to our 4PH + Hoof Pad option. Units are either self powered rechargeable battery or mains powered.
Centurion Systems also offers cold compression therapy, which is one of the most highly recommended treatments for recovery from soft tissue injuries and everyday training stress that may lead to more serious athletic injuries.
Centurion’s Boreas cold therapy machine helps to:
• Reduce Pain
• Reduce Swelling and inflammation
• Improve recovery from orthopaedic surgery
• Controls muscle damage
• Reduces heat
