WHY COLLECTING ECG ? 

The ECG is one of the only ways to detect certain cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation (left picture of Atrial Fibrillation from Equine Sport Medicine Practice report VS right picture normal ECG). In addition, some arrhythmias are only seen during exercise, hence the need to work with a tool that can monitor the horse at any speed.

WHAT ARE THE PARTICULARITIES OF EQUIMETRE ? 

Being the only monitoring device with internationally patented electrodes and a scientific validation, EQUIMETRE VET gives you the ability to collect and store the ECG of each horse being monitored at each training session. With this tool, you can watch the ECG live or replay it after the training – on an unlimited number of horses.  It is also the only tool that can measure the ECG of a horse at full speed with the same accuracy as at rest.

For the analysis of your ECGs, our offer includes a premium license of the best ECG analysis software available today: Kubios HRV® and 5 ECG analysis by our partner Equine Sports Medecine Practice, specialized in internal and sports medicine for sport and race horses.

In practice, the trainer can monitor the horse without the presence of the veterinarian. Then, a USB extraction software allows the trainer to send the ECG data to his veterinarian who will be able to consult them on Kubios.
