Joint health

Did you know?

The ComfortStall flooring system has been used in the recovery stables at top 3 veterinary hospital Cornell University ever since it was installed in 2007. 

ComfortStall's durability and therapeutic values have been proven in the laboratory as well as in the stable. In the lab, a simulated horse leg was loaded with 180kg and pounded for over 100,000 impressions in the same spot. 

The result was minimal compaction.Cornall was responsible for specifying ComfortStall's Precision Foam laminated closed cell engineered PE foam which prevents the padding from bottoming out and flattening over time.

The importance of joint health

Given the amount of time spent standing in stables it is important to provide orthopaedic support to joints, ligaments and tendons.

How Haygain can help

The ComfortStall flooring system is a unique orthopaedic padded system that 'springs' back with every step.And thanks to its non slip, non abrasive surface horses can get up without scuffing, eliminating hock sores. 

ComfortStall relieves horses suffering from sore feet and symptoms of laminitis. The padded flooring provides comfortable and supportive cushioning, encouraging the horse to lie down. 

And when lying down ComfortStall provides the much needed thermal insulation from the cold and damp from concrete and packed earth floors, and gives recumbent whole body support and the needed 'give' under the hip for improved quality of rest.
