Hylonome has been granted a patent by the United States Patent Office for its equine performance tracking and monitoring system.
Hylonome’s innovative technology is the Hylofit system, comprised of an unobtrusive equine wearable that delivers accurate and real-time feedback so training adjustments can be made from the saddle. Hylofit provides detailed insights to improve training results and promote the overall health and well-being of the horse. The technology is platform and device agnostic.
With receipt of this patent, Eliane van Reesema, Kate Motley and Laxmi Wordham join the small ranks of female inventors who hold a U.S. Patent. As Fortune magazine reported last year, fewer than one-in-five U.S. patents are held by women and only 8% of U.S. patents have a woman listed as a primary inventor.
“The Hylonome founders are proud to join the ranks of female inventors and share the milestone with Cees van Beckhoven, their scientific advisor based in the Netherlands,” according to a press release from Hylonome.
The Hylofit system was most recently showcased at the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event in Lexington, Ky. Spectators were able to see horse and rider heart rates and other key ride metrics in real-time on the large screen in Rolex Stadium at the Kentucky Horse Park. Hylofit’s presentation led to additional live demonstrations from June 21-24 at the 70th anniversary of CHIO Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
The product is available for pre-order at www.hylofit.com and will be widely available this fall.
