Botanica (N Ireland)
About: Botanica International Ltd was established in 2005 to cater for the growing awareness of natural products and to utilize the wonders of Nature’s Healing Energy. We have a natural herbal range developed to treat common skin conditions. The Herbal range contains a combination of natural ingredients, all of which have proven beneficial properties. Botanica’s Herbal system works to promote healthy cell growth and complete recovery without scarring. Traditionally we would look for a cream to form a barrier on a cut, but in fact a heavy thick cream can slow down the healing process on two levels. It can hold dirt around the affected area and it can prevent infection from getting out! Botanica’s wash cleanses the area and helps to remove any dirt or scabbing which may have formed. This part of the process is vital as it keeps the affected area open and draining, to allow any infection that may be present to drain. The wash is followed by Botanica’s Herbal Cream which is readily absorbed into the skin. It activates the healthy cells and the powerful combination of the herbal and the soothing properties of the natural oils get to work on a swift, complete recovery. Daily washings and cream application will reduce the affected area while continuing to liberate any infection.

EquinosisQ with Lameness Locator (USA)
About: The Equinosis® Q with Lameness Locator® is a real-time, handheld, field-based system that enables a licensed veterinarian to objectively measure lameness in horses with non-invasive inertial sensors. Evolving from the development of motion analysis algorithms at the University of Missouri using a high-speed camera and treadmill-based system, it is the gold standard for field-based measurement of lameness. The algorithms were developed in a collaborative effort between practicing equine veterinarians, led by Professor of Veterinary Medicine and Surgery Dr. Kevin Keegan, and engineers, led by Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineer Dr. Frank Pai, for the specific purpose of lameness evaluation in horses. Dr. Pai’s research interest and expertise in “structural damage detection” were instrumental in the development of the algorithms used in the Q. The motion variables most likely to detect and quantify lameness were first found using sophisticated data mining search techniques and then tested and validated with robust neural network classification schemes. Later collaboration between the University of Missouri and Dr. Yoshiharu Yanezawa, Professor of Electrical Engineering at the Hiroshima Institute of Technology in Japan adopted this analysis approach to a system of wirelessly-transmitted, body-mounted inertial sensors, ideal for field use. Dr. Yonezawa’s research interest and expertise in “Bio-instrumentation systems” were instrumental in the development of the hardware utilized in the Q.

About: Hallmarq produce the world’s #1 Standing MRI offering a unique insight into equine lameness, identifying the specific cause in over 90% of cases. With a clear diagnosis, the client can be offered informed advice not only with regard to treatment but also to prognosis and the length of time any recovery is likely to take. The most common approach to equine lameness is to conduct a thorough examination, including observation of the response to local anaesthetic ‘nerve blocks’, x-ray and ultrasound examinations. Based on the case history, these observations, and other knowledge and skills available the responsible veterinarian will recommend rest or treatment. In about 70% of cases, such treatment will not result in a satisfactory outcome, and the patient will return for a further examination. Without MRI, further diagnosis and treatment efforts are still only successful about 30% of the time. Cases frequently cycle around the loop of attempted diagnosis and treatment many times. Repeated failures frustrate client and vet alike, increase the client’s costs, and potentially exacerbate the condition. While any one loop around the cycle might appear to be the low-cost option, the total cost may well exceed the cost of a definitive MRI diagnosis. Don’t consider MRI as a last resort, get the answers that you need sooner rather than later. Early – MRI can be undertaken as soon as nerve blocks confirm the location of lameness. Safe – The Hallmarq equine MRI system offers the choice of standing MRI, giving you the quality images that you need with the horse under light sedation avoiding the risks of general anaesthesia. Accurate – Each scan generates between 300-500 images per foot, offering a 90% likelihood of conclusive diagnosis, helping to target treatment and obtain a more satisfactory outcome.

About: Connect with your Equine Drinking Data. With HydraSure, you can now keep track of equine water consumption using existing automated drinkers.

Our hypothesis is that specific passive antibodies are always beneficial in reducing the duration of a disease, reducing the severity of a disease or in arresting the disease entirely. It is to this goal that we devote ourselves. Of the principles that we hold most dear, besides quality, value and innovation, we consider customer service to be especially satisfying. Our day is not complete until we have satisfied the needs of the customer. Even to say it more clearly; sometimes when things don’t go right (because sometimes they don’t) we make an extra effort (nothing is spared) to see that the customer is taken care of. No excuse is acceptable if the client is not cared for. We are fanatical, intense, wound-tight, and high-strung on this point. I believe we have this high standard of service to our customers and most importantly, I think they agree. Video.

Polar Equine Training Systems (Finland)
About: Polar Equine training systems enable the health status of horses to be determined during general exercise or competition at a price point and with the ease of use that makes it a staple tech for recreational owners, competitive riders and professional elite trainers alike. By continuously and regularly monitoring vital signs awareness of abnormal activity can be used to trigger alerts that will help you avoid immediate or impending problems such as injury, illness, or fatigue. Changes in a Horse’s Heart rate gives you a measure of how it is coping because it will change in response to stress, travel, environment, new equipment, different skills, different riders, etc. You can use this information to learn more about a horse and optimise your work with it, ensure proper warm-up and recovery, track fitness improvement by comparing exercise and recovery heart rates, optimise training intensity (helping you avoid working it too lightly or too hard for too long and in doing so avoiding the related increased risks of injury/fatigue), accurately develop interval training for a particular horse and gauge intensity in different exercise programs (eg. while doing a aquatreadmill session or swimming).

About: Qualisys provide tools for precisely measuring equine movements using sequence coded active markers. Their objective lameness gait analysis system QHorse has clinical and research uses. For Horse lameness gait analysis the horse is equipped with markers on the head, withers and pelvis, which are detected by twenty cameras in the riding arena. On the straight line, as well as on the circle, the horse can be evaluated. Results are directly analysed and seen on the screen in the arena. Optical motion capture provides accurate 3D-positions of the different limbs and body parts and thus enables the creation of biomechanical models describing the animals’ movement apparatus. The motion capture technology is very non-intrusive, only light-weight small markers needs to be attached to the animal and will not disturb the normal movement pattern in the measurement situation. When measuring the distal limb of a horse, the movement frequency content is substantially higher than from a human requiring higher frame rates from the cameras. By using the high speed-mode of the Qualisys cameras you can capture in frequencies higher than 1,000 frames per second. Video.

Turfcord (by ContiTech) (Germany)
About: ContiTech and turfcord have innovated to produce New Rubber-Based Hoof Protection to offer the elasticity needed to suit a horse’s hoof, enhance comfort levels and promote a natural steady gait on all surfaces that relieves strain on joints. Hoof protection from turfcord Hoof protection is designed to guard against excessive strain without the drawbacks of a horseshoe. Unlike other elastomer-based hoof protectors, turfcord remains affixed to the hoof for up to eight weeks rather than being just a temporary solution. It is also different from standard horseshoes, which have been protecting horses’ hooves against excessive strain for more than 1,000 years. Due to the heavy material used, the conventional metal horseshoe changes the animal’s gait, and the rigid protection means that the hoof can no longer perform its cushioning function. At the same time, a horseshoe decreases stride length by roughly ten percent. Another disadvantage is that the metal is pinned directly to the hoof with special nails. That is not only a laborious procedure for the farrier, but also pure stress for the horse. The Continental training workshop in Korbach has spent years assisting turfcord in development. The innovative hoof protection is manufactured by ContiTech at its location in the Stöcken area of Hanover. Hoof protection from turfcord is available in two designs for front and rear hooves, each in twelve sizes. Farriers can apply it to hooves, using a special adhesive, during regular hoof-trimming sessions. While carrying out normal trimming work, they can remove it painlessly with pincers and a rasp and then replace it. The exhausting work of nailing on shoes, which is quite an ordeal, especially for sensitive animals, can be dispensed with entirely. The protection can be worn for six to eight weeks and will even expand with the hoof during this time. Because the material is lightweight and absorbs shocks, it relieves strain on the horse’s joints. Video.
