NIGHTWATCH® is the first equine distress & wellness monitor (patent protected) designed to continuously analyze real-time data on a horse’s vital signs and behaviors, and alert caretakers via SMS/text, phone call, and/or email at the early signs of danger/distress (eg, colic, being cast), and other conditions where intervention may be warranted (eg, foaling).

Horse owners, caretakers, and veterinarians alike can gain meaningful insight into a horse’s wellness, including that animal’s EDI® (Equine Distress Index) score―an objective measure of relative distress, anytime from the convenience of a smartphone or web dashboard.

The system’s smart technology is non-invasively embedded within the soft leather crown of a either a specially-designed breakaway halter or safety collar making NIGHTWATCH® safe and comfortable for round-the-clock use on horses in stalls, in pastures, and while in transit.
