Hylofit Heart Rate Monitor

Listen to the heart. The largest muscle.

The heart is an important indicator of fitness and impact of wellbeing.  The more you train with heart rate, the better you can understand the impact of work load versus stress and pain.  Tracking your horses sessions on the treadmill will enable us to adjust the levels of incline and water to improve fitness without undue stress and then to monitor progress with scientific technology as well as with the trained, experienced eye.

Informed training and well-being

Resting heart rate (RHR) is a good measure of readiness to train. Changes to RHR can be an indication of overexertion, stress or pain.  Initially anxiety and/or excitement of going onto the treadmill can have a significant impact on heart rate however over a short period the readings become accurate and of great help.

 

Heart rate acts as the voice of the horse, providing critical information to improve training results.   We use Hylofit to establish a RHR baseline for your horse at the beginning of each treadmill session. Whilst at rest and on the treadmill, your horse’s heart rate tells a story. We monitor changes to the horses heart rate during each session to help us make appropriate adjustments to the levels used in treadmill training. Knowing when to push, when to hold back and when to rest can be critical for building fitness, maximising performance and preventing injury.

Post-Session Insights

Discover your breakthrough moments with a full recap of your treadmill session, complete with a proprietary intensity score, full-session analytics and a graphical display of performance.  In addition, get an overview of historical training results with our calendar view and activity details graph tracking performance over time.

Our horses deserve to have a voice. Hylofit helps give them one.

Coach’s Eye

We use strategically placed cameras to capture video footage of your horse on the treadmill in real time.  Views from above and from the side through the glass panels of the treadmill mean we record the most informative angles.    We then analyse the action.    

 

There are options for extensive analysis using the state of the art coaching tools.  Playback videos in slow motion and scrub frame-by-frame to provide precise feedback.

 

Upload two videos side-by-side, so you can compare and contrast movements, and help make future adjustments.

 

Draw on your video using lines, shapes and arrows, to clearly illustrate your points and emphasise technique.

 

Add voice-over narration to provide personalisde feedback and reminders.

 

Use premium analysis tools such as the stopwatch to show elapsed time, the spotlight to highlight important details, and the angle to measure accuracy.

 

We are able to share this information with our clients and provide access on demand by uploading videos to a personal locker for safe-keeping and to enable clients to view videos from anywhere on any device.

 

We have one secure, central location where all of our clients can access and share videos.  Simple link invite process allows you to add horses to your team quickly and easily.

 

You have the flexibility to add and remove horses as your team of horses may change and/or create unlimited sub-teams so you can distribute videos privately with others, or to provide personalised feedback to other individuals or team health supporters such as vets and physios.

Hurricane Machine

At Equine Aqua Power we take our bio-security and hygiene seriously.   We ensure our treadmill room and machine are sanitised daily to ensure a first class experience for each and every horse. 

 

Our hurricane machine is the most effective means of ensuring fast-acting decontamination of internal areas, surfaces and equipment.  An industrial spec machine –  disinfectant is applied through a fogging system which sanitises both surfaces and the air itself through micro-droplets of disinfectant that remain on surfaces for an extended period of time, providing long-lasting protection.   Covering approx 20sq/m in approx 2 minutes we are able to ensure a consistently hygienic environment for our clients and horses. 

 

For our human guests have access to bathrooms and hand sanitiser at every entrance.
