9-axis IMU Sensor
A tracking device comprised of a 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis accelerometer, and a 3-axis magnetometer or compass to assess motion.
A meter used to measure the altitude of an object above a fixed level.
Low DistressYour horse's vital signs and activity are within their normal range.
Medium DistressYour horse's vital signs and activity are moderately outside their normal range.
High DistressYour horse's vital signs and activity are significantly outside their normal range.
BiometricsHeart & Respiratory Rates
NIGHTWATCH® uses novel radiofrequencytechnology (UWB-IR) to monitor your horse’s heartrate and respiratory rate, the two most important vitalsigns that correlate with possible pain and distress.
BehaviorsRoll Count & Recumbency Time
NIGHTWATCH® uses a variety of sensors,including a gyroscope, accelerometer,magnetometer, and an altimeter to continuouslyassess your horse’s activity, motion, and posture, allwhile reporting on their roll count and time spentlying down in a recumbent position.
EDI®Equine Distress Index®
The EDI® is a new 10-point scale that makesunderstanding your horse easy. The lower theirEDI® score, the happier and healthier they are.
NIGHTWATCH® is equipped with a GlobalPositioning System (GPS) allowing you topinpoint the location of your horse when analert is issued.
NIGHTWATCH® is an equine distress & wellnessmonitoring system that automatically alerts you and up to 4 careteam members at the early signsof a problem via text, call, and email.
NIGHTWATCH®Smart vs Manual Alerts
Smart: When smart alerts are enabled, the system islooking for deviation in your horse’s normal physiologicparameters (ie, biometrics, behaviors) that correlate withpain and distress.
Manual: When manual alerts are enabled, you can setyour own thresholds for any of the 4 parameters (ie, HR, RR, rolls, recumbency) to trigger an alert.
Stay ConnectedFrom automated alerts for early interventionto objective insight for better decision making,the NIGHTWATCH® smart halter™ allows you tostay connected no matter where you are orwhere you are going.
