Invoxia says their Smart Dog Collar will launch commercially in the first quarter so you can monitor your dog’s heart rate and location.
Heart rate monitoring technology closely resembles human ECG data. Priced at $149, with data subscriptions starting at $8.25 per month, sensors and AI technology can track and monitor a dog’s respiratory and heart readings and activity. it to provide information about its health, health status and whereabouts.
Developed in conjunction with veterinary experts, Invoxia’s biometric smart collars aim to enable preventative pet care. That means technology can detect a dog’s health problems before any visible signs appear and warn owners in advance, increasing the chances of prompt treatment and recovery. .
It collects and processes health data through miniature radar sensors, accelerometers, and AI inside the collar to measure movement, respiration, and heart rate — without the need to connect electrodes to the pet. .
Information is tracked, accessible and can be shared with veterinarians using the Invoxia app.
The company says the device’s Heartprint is made possible by AI and sensors built into the collar. It provides a 2D representation of the dog’s cardiopulmonary system through continuous rather than one-off measurements. It contains valuable information on how the condition of the heart changes based on stress, pain, firmness and heart disease.
Heartprint signatures, like ECGs, provide timing information for individual heartbeats and help detect and analyze different types of arrhythmias, as well as other abnormalities in resting rhythm patterns.
While an ECG provides a 1D time signal that is difficult to interpret for a long time, a Heartprint Signature is a 2D representation of the heart rate displayed as a Poincare Chart (used in human cardiovascular measurements). ) summarizes rich and valuable information at a time. skimmed for a long time.
“This visualization has exciting research potential. It embeds vital health data that can be analyzed on a large scale and used to better understand a variety of cardiovascular health states in dogs, thus becoming a tool to help improve preventive care. pet vaccines,” said Romain Pariaut, associate professor at Cornell University of Veterinary Medicine, in a statement.
Collars provide detailed information such as early warning of degenerative heart disease, congenital heart disease, stress level, and presence of pain or discomfort.
Amélie Caudron, CEO of Invoxia, said: “The ability to continuously monitor heart-lung activity has eluded our four-legged friends for years, but with Heartprint Signature, now it is. that was possible. “It opens up the possibility of bringing real preventative care to the pet market, and as more and more data is collected using this groundbreaking metric, Invoxia will build key facilities.” more accurate than ever for canine health parameters across different breeds, health conditions and life stages.”
The necklace weighs a third of a pound, and it will come in five colors. It tracks vital signs, behavior and activity, as well as location. Invoxia is a French startup that launched an AI-powered pet tracker in 2018. The tool is being used to collect data on millions of dogs.
