The Gentler Cattle Immobilizer is the latest new and improved design from Germany designed to effectively and safely immobilise cattle and livestock. The Gentler immobiliser allows the operator to work quicker with more control and battery life, whilst being gentler on animals, making it the ideal addition to any farm.

The Gentler cattle immobiliser is a new design from the inventors in Germany and has a number of significant improvements over the previous model. Cutting edge technology has been applied to make a robust, lightweight, powerful and effective immobiliser which is not only safer for the operator to use but also targets improved ware fare for the animal being immobilised.
The new model Gentler has the following features;
Gentler is a device which is inserted into the rectum of livestock and once engaged generates an engineered low voltage electrical current which causes the animal to experience partial temporary paralyse effects.
Having your beast paralyses or immobilized allows the operator to work around the animal and perform a range of procedures in a safe manner.
There are a range of adjustments with the immobilizer to achieve different effects on the animal and these adjustments include altering the power level/frequency of the impulses as well as the position of the immobiliser inside the animal. With little experience, the operator can quickly and safely make adjustments to achieve the desired result from the animal being immobilised.
Procedures commonly performed with the assistance of the Gentler Immobiliser:
It is important to realise the Gentler unit does not mask pain to the animal and only immobilises it. It is the responsibility of the operator to use this device in an ethical manner and only perform procedures considered acceptable without aesthetic.
Cattle from cows, steers, calves to bulls are immobilized through electric rectal probe stunning. Safe electrical currents are induced into the soft tissue of the animal causing a temporary and completely reversible paralysis of the muscle. Alternating between muscle contraction and relaxation at high frequencies allow for effective control of the beast while not inducing excessive muscle fatigue or damage. In terms of safety the Gentler cattle immobilizer provides benefits over large animal anesthesia or the alternative of having only crush or cradle restraint.
The Gentler is safe to use on animals and unlike other immobilisers does not put out a painful high voltage shock. On the highest power setting the Gentler can be held by small children with a bearable pulsing sensation experienced. Unlike other immobilisers, the Gentler uses smart engineering to trigger the animals muscles rather then brute voltage and shock. This pulsing is not harmful to the animal making use of the Gentler product a smarter way of farming.
The Gentler immobiliser features a new digital display and power level adjustment via buttons which allows a high level of control and adjustment. Older knob style devices were often only operated on the highest power setting which is not always necessary or the most effective. The new design provides much greater control which results in a better outcome for the animals wealth-fare.
The new Gentler utilises advancements in Lithium-ion battery technology to deliver a high powered, long lasting internal rechargeable battery. Unlike immobilizers of the past, this internal battery is able to hold the required battery voltage and necessary amperage over its full cycle meaning no loss in performance of the immobilizer throughout its use.
The Gentler features a industrial Lithium-ion battery allowing the Gentler to operate on it's highest power setting for 6hrs continuously. Normal operation in a large scale commercial farming environment delivers reliable and repeatable performance over a full day of operation.
Lithium-ion batteries also benefit from fast charge and minimal effects from a short cycle charged. The smart fast charge has the Gentler back to full capacity in under 2hrs.

Note: For very wild, large cattle in some instances only partial paralysis may be achieved, however, this will provide improved safety compared to not using an electric immobiliser.
