Equine Wind Test®
Equine Analysis Systems of Kentucky, LLC – a thoroughbred management consultant, challenged the expert team at Signal Solutions, LLC to construct a way to track breathing patterns in race horses.
Traditionally, trainers and industry professionals in the equine industry used endoscopy techniques to monitor horses breathing patterns under load. Endoscopy is a great aid in monitoring and understanding breathing complications in race horses.
Upper airway problems can hinder performance and lead to chronic conditions in horses. While endoscopy is common, it has inherent limitations. For instance, resting endoscopy never fully told the “whole story” of what was potentially happening with breathing under stress (while racing/running).
While dynamic scoping procedures yielded more accurate results, it was with a greater cost. Signal Solutions engineered a solution that would eventually become Wind Test ® By Equine Analysis Systems. This new wind test became a more cost effective and practical way to monitor breathing patterns in thoroughbreds.
The Wind Test ® is a unique and entirely non -invasive way of both diagnosing upper airway pathology and identifying your horse’s inherent ability to breathe at racing speeds.
