Therapeutic Benefits of SoftBed Comfort
With SoftBed Comfort, owners of performance horses report that sores on hocks, fetlocks and knees are gone within days and wind puffs are greatly reduced. The orthopedic foam provides cushioned anti fatigue support to joints, ligaments and tendons, and eases the pain of horses with chronic laminitis. Very soft and therapeutic, these 2 inch foam padded horse stall mattresses encourage horses to lie down and are the mattress of choice at equine podiatry centers.
Easier Cleaning and Improved Environmental Health
The soft, flexible surface of SoftBed Comfort mats provides your horse with a durable and comfortable bed, equivalent to 4-6 inches of shavings. They greatly improve your horse’s wellbeing and reduce the amount of bedding material needed, making mucking out stalls much easier and less time consuming.
Generally we recommend placing some shavings around the SoftBed only. But, if you choose to cover the SoftBed with a thin layer of shavings as well, any wet shavings on top of the SoftBed can be easily removed. Unlike regular stall mats, which take on the urine’s ammonia smell, the rubber material of the SoftBed does not absorb any bacteria from urine and will remain clean and odorless. The SoftBed Comfort will prevent urine pits and holes in your bedding, while improving air quality and insulation of your stall.
The SoftBed Comfort is 6 feet wide, 8 feet long, and weighs 220 lbs, heavy enough to prevent horses from shifting or moving it.
The SoftBeds’ 2 inch foam core is protected by 2 rubber mats with a textured surface that prevents slipping. The rubber matting is sealed using a vulcanizing process, protecting the SoftBed’s foam core from moisture.
Your SoftBed Comfort comes with a 5 year warranty and a 20+ years expected lifespan.
No Installation Required
We are recommending one SoftBed per 12’ x 12’ or 12’ x 14’ stall. Simply place the SoftBed on top of your existing floor into your stall or paddock. A small amount of shavings can be added around the SoftBed to provide a urinating spot fore the horse, which will help the middle of the stall stay dry and clean.
Unlike other therapeutic stall flooring, SoftBed Comfort does not require any installation, and can easily be moved to a different location. This makes SoftBed Comfort the perfect solution for owners who board and would like to provide comfort to their horse, while having the flexibility to move the SoftBed to a different stall if needed.
