Dual-Arm animal dryer with therapeutic radient energy healing feature


An Irish SME has developed a "top and bottom", dual-arm, safe circulatory air-flow, drying/warming device, with (optional diffuser), radient infra-red energy treatment application. The company is offering a license to a manufacturer of products related to animal husbandry and welfare.

Partner sought

All established animal based professions/fields/supplier to same.


This Irish SME has developed an animal warming and drying apparatus, optionally incorporating a radiant energy therapy means on upper & lower diffuser elements each deployable from a folded storage position. A combined air blower and heating unit draws air from an inlet port, directing the warmed air via upper & lower ports to air outlets in respectively the upper & lower diffusers. In one arrangement, each diffuser comprises a replaceable diffuser head mounted on a telescopically extendible arm and includes a radiant energy source disposed adjacent the air outlet. A method of use of the apparatus for drying or warming an animal and/or applying radiant energy therapy thereto is also disclosed. The developer wishes to license the product to a manufacturer, who has a route to market for products relating to animal husbandry/rescue/welfare/clinical/physio.

Advantages and innovations

The device is directed specifically to the care of animals of all sizes, for use privately and commercially. For prevention (prior to entering) of water/sand/dirt damage to transport vehicles, homes or animals bedding. For clinical use, indoors or out, for bone injuries/fusion, for traumatised, hypothermic animals, (or environmental bird oil-slick damage cases), to elevate body temperature in a quiet, gentle manner, (with optional radient infra-red treatment, for therapeutic effect, omitting risk of thermal shock). For new-born winter season animals (possibly premature), to maintain stable body temperature. Advantages are that the device is portable/battery operated for all outdoor activities/animal handlers/emergency med., or mains operated when indoors. Commercially viable for multible dogs requiring fast, comfortable, non-skin contact circulatory air-drying.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
