With Piavet, veterinarians can monitor critical vital signs such as heart rate, respiratory rate and temperature of horses – anywhere and anytime. The innovative design allows for 16 sensors to be arranged in a very compact case that comfortably fits in the palm of the hand. The device is attached to the horse with a special belt. Measurement without electrodes or cables reduces stress for the animal. The water- and shockproof case can easily withstand the horse’s weight if it lies down.

Statement by the Jury

Piavet displays an impressively compact and solid design in order to survive challenging use in the stable and on the paddock.
