IPOS Technology

A Dutch veterinarian, in 2018 launched the IPOS system: a training application combined with different wearable digital devices to monitor the performance of the horse and rider. These devices connect via Bluetooth to a smartphone; such as the IPOS rein sensor – a ‘fitbit’ for the horse that monitors the rider’s tractive force.

I’m excited about this because those using IPOS system devices, particularly in competitive sports, not only enhance performance but, importantly, prevent injuries to the horse and improve overall equine welfare.

    A fairly niche market, I guess that’s why the hardware is so expensive! I’d be guessing there are a couple of strain gauges connected to a microprocessor with bluetooth, with a battery and wireless charger.

    Thanks! Interesting
