GILBERT, Ariz. - Jan. 23, 2021 - PRLog -- American Equus and Energous Announce Trials Completed for the World's First Wirelessly Charged Equine Health Tracking Sensor
"That fact that our health monitoring wearable sensor has finished trials and is slated to be available to customers in early 2021 has us all excited," said David Shano, president at American Equus. 28Gorilla, Imagine Manufacturing and Energous have developed a highly durable, waterproof wireless charging tracker ideally suited for the high demands of the horseracing and professional equestrian industry.
The waterproof sensor is attached to the outside of a horse's lower tendon via an ankle wrap or boot and monitors the temperature of the tendon/skin surface through an infrared sensor. All four legs are monitored, and data is transmitted through a Bluetooth connection to the rider or monitoring station. If any single temperature deviates from the mean of the device's four sensors past a predetermined point, an alarm is sent to the user indicating a tendon may be injured or of concern.
Based in Gilbert, Arizona, American Equus produces stirrups, spurs and horseshoes out of lightweight and durable aluminum alloy. Completely customizable, with hand-polished finishes, American Equus products are the perfect mixture of equestrian tradition and 21st century production technology, design and function. The company designs and manufactures equipment suitable for all equestrian disciplines including hunter/jumpers, dressage, polo, western and racing. American Equus is also currently the only company to produce stirrups and spurs completely in the United States.
