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.

In order to detect the elements influencing the performance of the athletic horse, it is interesting to analyse its evolution during an exercise because things that do not occur at rest can appear.
The arrival of the two-year-olds in the stables is always an exciting and dreamy time for racehorse trainers. Training a two-year-old is the opportunity to detect within his stable a future crack capable of running and winning group races. Discover in this article 4 elements to be objectified during the training of the newly arrived two-year-olds in the stable.
Preventing the risk of pathologies in racehorses is at the heart of the attention of all those involved in the sector. Discover our advice on prevention.
During this interview, Dr Emmanuelle van Erck, a specialist in equine internal and sports medicine, will discuss
the importance of measuring heart rate variability in the athletic horse.
Arrhythmias are abnormal cardiac rythm. In this article, Dr Emmanuelle van Erck explains when to suspect arrhythmias and how to identify it.
As racehorses are true athletes, monitoring their health and performance is essential. In this article, we will explain why and how to adopt a longitudinal monitoring of racehorses.
The electrocardiogram (known as ECG) is a veterinary tool that records the electrical activity of the heart. It allows to investigate and monitor the heart function of the horse by displaying the electrical activity of the heart.
The horse’s team encounter a major issue in the training of racehorses: how to find the balance between overtraining and under-training?
The standardized test of effort must reflect the reality of the effort of a race (e.g. an acceleration over 400/600m) without reaching its intensity.
