PonyUp’s Vet Cheq™ is a unique device, worn by the horse that remotely and wirelessly monitors vital information. It is an advanced diagnostic tool that gathers, manages, stores and transmits information that includes: blood pressure, heart rate, pulse pressure, hydration, blood volume, blood loss, respiration, fetal heart rate, contractions and aneurisms. When combined with the PonyUp management system, the information being gathered is available to owners, trainers and veterinarians in real-time from any location where data is available on a cell phone or computer.
Vet Cheq is essential to serious conditioning programs allowing trainers to see and chart conditioning progress. By tracking vital information over time and charting results the trainer has the ability to custom-fit training programs to individual horses with verifiable results, thus eliminating any guesswork.
For owners and veterinarians Vet Cheq provides early illness detection, injury detection, monitors treatment effectiveness and pain during recovery, and allows more comprehensive veterinary examinations.
Breeders that use Vet Cheq can pin-point ovulation, monitor fetal heart rate and contractions.
For those competing in extreme sports, Vet Cheq monitors hydration, respiration, heart rate, blood pressure and blood loss.
