The key to getting consistant results from Equine Heart Rate monitors is to ensure that the electrodes are in direct contact with the skin of the horse. Usually this can be achieved by wetting the horse in the area of the electrodes, however there are occasions when coat conditions make this more difficult, in these cases a conductive gel can be used. E.c.g. Gel is used extensively throughout the medical profession as a highly conductive electrode solution for use on E.C.G equipment. Supplied in a large 250g tube the gel is water based and easily removed after applying.
