Sleip AI AB (Sweden)
AI + equine veterinary medicine = Sleip. Sleip was founded by Elin Hernlund and Axel Nyström in 2020. Elin has a background working as a veterinary equine orthopedic researcher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden, with a focus on preventing and discovering equine lameness at an early stage. Axel has a background working in various roles, including as developer, in the area of AI. He graduated from Oxford University with a PhD in Engineering Methods for Biological Problems. Our vision is an equine-human centered AI technology that can be used to enrich the equine community with valuable information and tools that will aid in a better understanding of how and why horses move the way they do. Prevention is a key component of this vision. Just as important is ensuring the making of a sustainable and successful veterinarian-horse owner unit addressing any small sign of initial lameness. Continuously and successfully tracking the horse´s progress to ensure optimal rehab into full performance. We are working towards a future of fewer instances of equine lameness, a faster recovery process in the event of lameness, and a healthier equine community at large.
