Estride™ Tracker is an award winning multi-functional fitness tracker that measures everything you need to improve your riding and insure the health of your horse. Ideal for hacking, training, competition and/or any other activity in the equestrian field.
It can measure Training Time, Stride Count, Gait Pattern, Session Regularity, Horse Stability, Calorie Burn for you as well as your horse.
It can be used to help identify subtle lameness and rehabilitate your horse post injury, by measuring stride irregularity
Fitness, Lameness and Rehabilitation
“Estride is a fantastically innovative product that brings benefits to both horse and rider, with a more accurate understanding of movement and potentially improved performance through better understanding.”
Decode The Silent Code
Trackers use inertial and magnetic sensors attached on each of horse’s leg to identify stride inconsistencies.
It tracks each swing phase to generate specific feature of stride for each leg. By taking breed classes into account, the acceleration values of the different gaits are measured.
Training & Features
Software has been trained by 100+ samples of different breed of horses to make it more accurate. Below is n example of collected data from the sensor signals for all axes, including the calculated magnitude, from various riding session. The sample frequency of 5Hz is sufficient to analyze gait in walk, trot, canter and gallop.
The work flow is divided into several smaller segments, with three major sections pre-processing, feature extraction and classification. Gait classification using best in the industry technique using the features extracted.
Front legs and Hind leg features are compared independent and in diagonals to identify stride inconsistencies based on 8 point check using artificial intelligent algorithms.
Estride implements machine–learning framework to identify the inconsistencies in each phase of the gait. This data helps the system to more accurately predict the issues and also identify rehabilitation. Our machine learning techniques using neural networks and decision trees not only helps identify potential issues but predict them before they might occur.
Injury & Lameness
Measure lameness where it starts and access equine leg movement effectively.
Trackers can be used in analysing horse’s stride pattern and any potential lameness during pre-purchase examinations. It measures
Frequency of stride
Impact of foot fall
Regularity of stride
Rythm of stride
Acceleration of stride
Stride swing phase and landing
It also assists with equine rehabilitation following injury or surgery, to return the horse to a level of function that either meets or exceeds the previous performance level, and monitoring progress within rehabilitation. You can see if the stride is improving or worsening after the injury/lameness with various technical modules within the software which are easy to understand and do not require any technical expertise.
Recovery & Fitness
Fitness is directly proportional to performance. To achieve great performance, your horse athlete needs extraordinary fitness. Estride trackers also help you with
Gait & Transitions – Analyze walk, trot & canter pattern to measure time spent in each gait. See calories burnt in each gait and compare historic data.
Training Time – Track your daily active training time and compare with previous sessions.
Stride Count & Pattern – Monitor stride count and analyze pattern in each gait. Identify any inconsistencies in pattern and compare to previous data.
Horse Calorie Burn – Measure horse calorie burn during your training session, calories burnt in each gait and compare previous data.
Rider Calorie Burn – Measure your calorie burn during your riding sessions. Helpful for tracking your own fitness!
Trackers can be bought in various combinations and can be upgraded at any time. Buy trackers for 1 leg, 2 legs or 4 legs.
Set targets for calorie burn, riding time, gait duration and allow us help you achieve them.
