Cardio data is abnormal

Here are some points of attention to help you understand what may have distorted the signal.

Dampen the electrodes and change the foams.

The foams of the electrodes have a double effect: they allow a soft touch with the horse's skin to avoid injuries, but above all they retain moisture to ensure the conductivity of the heart signal, which is an electrical signal.

If the cardio signal is scrambled, especially at the beginning of the work, perhaps the electrodes were not well moistened or the foams are too damaged. Make sure to change them regularly! Click here for more information.

Contact of the electrodes with the skin

If the signal becomes blurred, especially at the end of the session or on a one-off basis, contact with the horse's skin may have been lost.

  • The horse girth has been loosened
  • The foot of the rider hit the sensor

Signal anomaly with the Trotters and Vet girths

The cardio girths have a connector that must be screwed well with the sensor. Here are some points of attention with the straps:

  • Check the connector
  • Check the condition of the foams and change them if necessary.
  • Check the condition of the girth electrodes, if they seem to be damaged contact us here
  • The girth must be tight enough so that the electrodes are in contact with the horse even when moving.

Tip: To check that the cardio sensor is working properly, turn on the Live App at rest while still in the box. If the cardio is working properly, the displayed heart rate should be stable and low (30-60 bpm at the box).
