Established to alleviate this hardship is Ossicles Technologies, an IoT specialist committed to building innovative solutions that enhance the health and safety of performance horses.
“Our goal is to develop a smart earplug for horses by leveraging IoT technology, connecting them for health, safety, and performance,” says Daniel Ferland, founder and CEO of Ossicles Technologies.
Adhering to this goal since its inception, Ossicles Technologies has reached the final stages of bringing its flagship product, eQuiet, to the market. Designed with advanced noise-canceling capabilities, this IoT digital earplug controls the sound environment and records and displays biometric and geospatial data on a portable device. While passive earplugs can reduce noise by 2 to 5 decibels, eQuiet fits perfectly into a horse’s ears to block 20 to 40 decibels, giving it the ability to perform noise cancelling.
It's safe to say that eQuiet is a game-changer and value-added alternative to its competitors. They fall behind eQuiet in accuracy and data integrity, as moving horses and their thick skin act as barriers in making static contact between the device and the animal. eQuiet stands out from others for its ability to establish a constant contact with horses through their ears, delivering the most accurate biometric data.
Access to this information enables it to be an early indicator of diseases like colic and heaves before horses display any outward symptoms.
Continuing its innovation streak, Ossicles Technologies’ engineering labs are busy developing products that can make a difference in the lives of horses and horse trainers. It will soon introduce its NMR system, an IoT device installed on jumper rings to provide information on fallen rails and when they are put back in place. The next big thing in its pipeline is the Smart Leg Wrap. Ossicles Technologies aims to help detect micro-lesions on horse tendons, which is impossible to do with the human eye.
