HOOF CARE

by Wei-Ting Wang, Chia-Jun Hung, Yu-Hsing Wu

HOOF CARE is a horse physiology and leg monitoring device mounted on the hoof and calf of a horse.
HOOF CARE can monitor foot pressure distribution, step frequency through pressure-sensing chip built into the horseshoe, and record the 3D motion posture of the foot through a three-axis acceleration gauge installed on the horseshoe. It can be used to determine whether the horse's legs are abnormal when walking or running, and the limb information will be synchronized to the calf detector. The calf detector can also sense the heart rhythm of the horse, monitor the horse's heart condition and prevent heat exhaustion, and then send it back to the tablet terminal by the calf detector. HOOF CARE can provide horse physical and leg abnormal information in real time to warn owners to avoid horses delaying medical treatment.
