Is your horse rugged comfortably? Do you know what your horse has been doing?
You don’t ever have to guess again
Introducing ORSCANA , the first equine health monitor
Have you ever wondered if your horse I getting hot and unsettled while travelling?
Ever been anxious that your yard has over or under rugged your horse?
Ever been dismayed to find a sweaty, unhappy horse?
Ever wondered why your horse is not performing as normal?
Banish those concerns for ever with Orscana, a new equine sensor that monitors and tracks body heat, moisture and movement, collecting data 24 hours a day. Orscana logs how long your horse lies down, rests, stands calmly, is active or has disturbed behaviour and whether your horse is at a comfortable temperature beneath its rugs. Linked with the local weather forecasts and the previous night’s data, Orscana, then advises you, via its app, how to rug your horse.
Simply attach Orscana’s small circular sensor into the lining of your rug in one of the special pouches provided.
Quickly download the app to your smartphone, pairing the app to your sensor and data begins to record straight away.
The sensor is suitable for Professionals and Amateurs alike. It answers very real questions that have, until now remained unanswered.
Which rug? When? What weight? Too heavy? Not warm enough? Did my horse really rest last night? Was my horse too hot or too cold? The weather changes tonight, should I be changing rugs? What was my horse doing?
All horse owners want to do their very best for their horses, with the knowledge delivered from Orscana, an accurate picture of each horse’s lifecycle over time is built and what effect this cycle may have on performance and wellbeing.

When the device works well, it's very useful. However, I found that it repeatedly turns itself off while my horse was in the field (and is therefore not recording data). When I turn it back on, it intermittently records bizarre temperature readings (for example, 57 degrees Celsius). I attached it to my horse's rug using the fixture system provided and it became detached and is now lost in the mud - it is not made clear from the included instructions that this fixture system is for use when travelling only. Overall, I think the concept is excellent, but I would have liked a better quality product for the price.

I hadn't realised you had to be so close to the scanner to get a reading. I had expected to be able to use this when not in the yard, to help me know if the horse was rugged correctly. However you need to be quite close to get the scanner to sync to the phone and in my view that's no better than just putting a hand under the rug to check if too warm. On the plus side it will tell you if the horse has been too warm and when, so if you haven't been able to check yourself, it helps you assess if you should be reducing or increasing the rugs as it also factors in the weather forecast. It also tells you about levels of activity, but difficult to know how accurate they are.

The Orscana system has completely changed the way I have previously had to disturb my veteran PPID horse in the winter evenings in order to put my hand under his rug to check if he’s too cold or too hot. I can now scan him in the field or the stable whilst at a distance. I don’t even need to go into the barn to scan him, I just quietly stand outside, get a reading and I can go to bed knowing he’s fine without disturbing him and annoying him fiddling with rugs.

My horse lives out at night all year around can this be used when they are turned out?
Yes it can. Orscana is designed to attach under your horse's rug. It is safe for use when stabled or turned out.
I hope this helps.
