Booming Brabant featuring Ipos Technology and Imke Schellekens Bartels in 2018
Text Corne Verschuren:
Conservative equestrian sports are not at the forefront when it comes to introducing tech into their sport. Little by little, however, the realization is emerging that the contribution of high-tech benefits performance. For example, Ipos Technology developed a rein pressure sensor so that rider and horse can communicate better with each other.
Menke van Steenbergen, founder of Ipos Technology, is also a rider herself. “I found out while riding that I was putting a lot more pressure on my right rein than on my left. As a result, I sat crooked on my horse. The symmetry puts too much load on one of the horse's front legs and injuries occur,” she says in the TV program Booming Brabant.
