Title
(EN) HORSE HEART RATE MONITOR SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTEME DE SURVEILLANCE DE RYTHME CARDIAQUE DE CHEVAL
Abstract
(EN)
An equine heart rate monitor (4) provided with two electrodes (2) is mounted to a saddle girth (1). When the girth (1) is used to secure a saddle (11) to a horse (10), the electrodes (2) contact the horse's skin above and below the level of its heart, while a main body of the monitor (4) is located on an outer face (8) of the girth (1) away from the horse (10). The electrodes (2) detect the horse's heart beat, and a short-range radio transmitter within the monitor (4) transfers heart rate data wirelessly to a display device wearable, for example, on a rider's wrist. The rider thus has a continuous real-time display of the horse's heart rate, and optionally calculated maximum, minimum and average heart rates, so that an exercise session may be tailored to provide maximum benefit to the horse's fitness without exhausting it.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un moniteur de rythme cardiaque équin (4) muni de deux électrodes (2) qui est monté sur une sangle de selle (1). Lorsque la sangle (1) est utilisée pour fixer une selle (11) sur un cheval (10), les électrodes (2) entrent en contact avec la peau du cheval au-dessus du niveau de son coeur et par-dessous celui-ci, alors qu'un corps principal du moniteur (4) est situé sur une face extérieure (8) de la sangle (1) à distance du cheval (10). Les électrodes (2) détectent le battement du coeur du cheval et un émetteur radio de courte portée à l'intérieur du moniteur (4) transfère sans fil les données du rythme cardiaque à un dispositif d'affichage portable, par exemple sur un poignet du cavalier. Le cavalier possède ainsi un affichage continu en temps réel du rythme cardiaque du cheval et, en option, des rythmes cardiaques calculés maximal, minimal et moyen, de telle sorte qu'une session d'entraînement peut être adaptée pour fournir un avantage maximal à la condition physique du cheval sans l'éreinter.
