This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by replacing damaged tissue and/or by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal previously irreparable tissues or organs.
Regenerative medicine also includes the possibility of growing tissues and organs in the laboratory and safely implant them when the body cannot heal itself.
Regenerative medicine refers to a group of biomedical approaches to clinical therapies that may involve the use of stem cells, growth factors and matrix therapy.
In horses, regenerative medicine demonstrated efficacy in tendonitis and
osteoarthritis as well as in ophthalmology.
-Severe wounds or arthritis
-If a horse is suffering from a tendon, ligament or joint injury.
RevaTis proposes a global concept in regenerative veterinary medicine based on the combination of growth factors (PRP kits), scaffolds (new generation of hyaluronic acid) and regenerative stem cells.
RevaTis has an innovative concept which helps you to improve the sport performance of your horse!

Laser and LED therapy and acupuncture
Laser and LED therapy and acupuncture, are applicable in many important and common conditions.
Both therapies are safe, non-invasive and painless.
Laser and LED therapy is indicated for the treatment of several conditions typical to Horses, such as Arthritis, Back pain, Osteoarthritis, Fracture, Muscle Contracture, Tendinitis, Laminitis, Edema/Hematoma etc.
The laser may also be used to stimulate acupuncture points.
This method of stimulation is non-painful and can suit some patients better than needling. There is, however, a clear reaction when appropriate points are stimulated by the Laser.
The laser’s energy in this way reaches deep into the tissue to create a more powerful therapeutic anti-inflammatory, anti-edema, and analgesic effect, speeding up the healing process at the same time.
