HAMILTON BIOVET ANNOUNCES INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN TO LAUNCH BREAKTHROUGH PRODUCT FOR THE EQUINE MARKET.
Ipswich, MA. October 24, 2014 – Hamilton BioVet, a growing player in the Equine Therapy market, announces its Indiegogo campaign to launch
Equine Night Check: The World’s First Remote Signal From A Horse In Distress.
Using state of the art software and electronic detection systems, Equine Night Check is designed to identify early symptoms of colic, laminitis, foaling or a horse cast in the stall. Equine Night Check is a small device that fits on a specially designed SAFETY Halter with 4 breakaway points or a Neck Strap. Once a problem is detected, Night Check sends a radio signal to a cellular interface that can be plugged into any electrical outlet. The interface device calls or texts the horse owner’s designated numbers and sends an alert. The radio signal from Night Check can travel as much as a mile, meaning that horses can be out in a nearby pasture.
Meg Hamilton CEO has 20 years of experience in development of electronic and image analysis products and is excited about this new capability. “Being a lifelong horse woman, I have wanted to create this detection product for many years. All of us in the equine industry have lost horses to colic, had top horses disabled by laminitis, or lost months of training due to injury when a horse has been cast in the stall. According to leading veterinarians time is the most critical factor if colic or laminitis are to be successfully treated. Night Check’s ability to detect symptoms when they are still intermittent can give the veterinarian and horseman that essential time to arrive at a better outcome. Colic is the number one killer of horses and every case of colic should be viewed as serious, needing veterinary attention, because we never know at the outset if we are dealing with a mild attack or a potentially life threatening situation such as a twisted intestine.”
A. J. Kaneps, DVM, Ph.D., DACVS; DACVSMR, states that: “For some of the most devastating medical issues in the horse, such as colic or laminitis, early recognition followed by appropriate treatment is imperative for the most beneficial outcome.”
The Company has done intensive and successful testing with its working prototypes, and now needs funding to finalize the product and commence the first manufacturing run.
