    CES 2023: With the HeartPrint Technology, Invoxia continuously monitors the cardiac health of dogs

    Invoxia has announced its award-winning Smart Dog Collar will launch commercially in Q1 2023 with a sleek new design and advanced heart tracking technology that approximates that of human ECG data. Priced at $149, with data subscriptions starting from $8.25 per month, the advanced sensor and AI technology can track and monitor a dog’s respiratory and heart vitals and its activity to provide a 3600 overview of its health, wellbeing, and whereabouts.

    Developed alongside veterinary specialists, Invoxia’s groundbreaking biometric Smart Collar is paving the way for preventative pet care with technology that can spot problems in a dog’s health before any visible signs surface and alert the owner in advance, increasing the chances of timely treatment and recovery. It captures and processes health data via miniaturized radar sensors, accelerometers, and edge AI within the collar to measure movement, respiratory and heart rates that would otherwise be impossible without uncomfortable electrodes.

    Information is tracked, accessible, and can be shared with vets using the Invoxia app.

    Data In A Heartbeat – Introducing Heartprint Technology™

    Heartprint is a unique capability made possible by the AI and unique sensors built inside the collar. It provides a 2D visual representation of a dog’s cardio-pulmonary system through continuous rather than one-off measurements. It contains valuable information about the state of the heart that changes based on stress, pain, tonus levels and heart diseases.

    A Heartprint Signature, like an ECG, provides information on the timings of each individual heartbeat and helps detect and analyze various forms of arrhythmia, as well as other anomalies in the resting beats pattern.

    While an ECG offers a 1D temporal signal that is difficult to interpret over a long period of time, Heartprint Signature is a clever 2D representation of heartbeats that is shown as a Poincare Plot (used in human cardiovascular measurements) that summarizes rich and valuable information at a glance over a long period of time. Each (x, y) point of the Heartprint Signature represents a heartbeat, where x is the interval from the preceding beat, y is the interval to the next heartbeat, while alpha transparency is used so that patterns appear at the positions where many points overlap.

    Each signal delivers data that is collected and used to build a unique Heartprint Signature of heartbeats over long resting periods, lasting from a few hours to a few days. While continuous monitoring of cardio-pulmonary biomarkers in human health is beneficial and commonplace, the sensor technology used for two-legged subjects relies on light-reflecting sensors or electrodes that don’t work on furry patients. The Invoxia Smart Dog Collar radar and motion technologies solve this problem to provide powerful ongoing insights, such as early warnings into degenerative heart diseases, congenital heart diseases, stress levels, and the presence of pain or discomfort.

    “The ability to continually monitor cardio-pulmonary activity has eluded our four-legged friends for years, but with the Heartprint Signature, it is now possible. It opens the possibility of bringing true preventative care to the pet market, and as more and more data is collected using this breakthrough index, Invoxia will build ever more accurate baselines for canine health parameters across different breeds, health conditions, and doggie life stages.” said Amélie Caudron, CEO of Invoxia.

    “This visualization has exciting research potential. It embeds important health data that can be analyzed at scale and used to gain insights into a wide variety of heart health states in dogs, thus becoming a tool to help improve preventative pet care.” said Romain Pariaut, DVM DACVIM DECVIM-CA, Associate Professor at Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine.

    From Wellbeing to Whereabouts.

    The new Invoxia Smart Dog Collar has a new look and feel and is suitable for a wide variety of medium and large-sized dogs. Its silicone design makes it lighter (0,34lbs), more robust, and easier to maintain, while still remaining comfortable for the animal, and it will come in several colors including yellow, red, green, gray, and black. Packed with proprietary technology, the Smart Dog Collar performs the following functions:

    ●        Vital Sign Monitoring: Developed with board-certified veterinary cardiologists in the US, it measures resting heart rate and respiratory levels along with a dog’s Heartprint Signature

    ●        Behavioral/Activity Tracking: It can automatically detect multiple activities to monitor the time a pet spends running, walking (at home, while dog sitting or in dog care), eating, drinking, barking, or scratching, alerting to potential skin conditions. It can help detect and monitor any volatilities or changes in appetite

    ●        24/7 Location Tracking: The Invoxia Smart Dog Collar intelligently combines Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and GPS to offer owners accurate location details with maximum battery efficiency. Its intelligent escape alerts can help owners track even the most runaway-prone dog, and with geo-fencing, users can set parameters and be alerted if a dog strays. With a built-in buzzer, users can detect when a dog is close by, if it’s hiding under a car, or trapped in a garage. In addition, the integrated GPS locator allows owners to locate their dog if stolen while wearing the Smart Collar.

    Pricing and Availability

    The Smart Dog Collar will be available commercially in Q1 2023, priced at $149, with data subscriptions starting from $8.25 per month. It is available for demonstration during CES at the Invoxia Booth Venetian Expo #54225.   For further information, visit (smartdogcollar.com).

    [Gifts that Give Back] PT Runs Free Book Donates Proceeds to Foster and Adoption-based Animal Rescues

    Help animals in need this year by gifting a new children’s book featuring rescue dog PT (who also has 3 legs) that gives back to animal causes! More than 6 million companion animals end up in shelters each year. A meaningful way to celebrate the holidays is to help animals in need by gifting this new children’s book PT Runs Free that gives back to animals in need. All proceeds from the book with always be donated to foster and adoption-based animal rescues.

    PT Runs Free written by Jason Kraus and illustrated by Connor DeHaan is an inspirational story featuring rescue dog PT and his journey from a neglectful family and as a shelter dog, to losing his leg and to never give up. Not only is this book written with an inspirational message, but the power of hope is being spread as all proceeds are being donated to Southwest Florida rescue groups and humane societies to help with Hurricane Ian displaced pets and needs.

    PT’s owner Angie McGilvrey says there are two reasons she and husband Joe, owners of APEX Physical Therapy, wanted to share their dog’s story. “First, each of us, adults and children alike, have obstacles we are faced with throughout life, and we hope that PT will inspire others through positivity and determination to never give up and they too can conquer their obstacles,” she explains. “Secondly, we wanted to teach the next generation of pet owners humane education and why it is so important to be kind to animals. We feel that we can make the greatest impact in animal rescue by educating our youth.”

    Author Jason Kraus was inspired to tell PT’s story because there are so many life lessons children AND adults can learn from his bravery and perseverance. “His life’s story exemplifies the resilience many rescue dogs exude as they often go through,” he continues.

    ABOUT PT Runs Free:

    This picture book, based on a true story, shares the uplifting tale of PT the rescue dog. PT faces many challenges in life, but never gives up! With the powers of positivity and determination, he overcomes a neglectful family, life as a shelter dog and even the loss of his leg! Find out how the incredible three-legged rescue regains his ability to run free, all while educating and inspiring children in schools and community centers along the way.

    The real PT who was found injured on the side of a road in Miami, FL is now living the good life with his forever family in Fort Myers, FL. As a therapy dog, PT goes to work every day with his parents, Joe and Angie, the owners of Apex Physical Therapy. PT serves as the clinic’s mascot, spreading kindness, and inspiring those in pain or recovering from challenges of their own. On his days off, PT teaches children about empathy and the importance of adopting rescue dogs still waiting to find their forever homes.

    Jason said his favorite part of the book is the ending! “When PT overcomes all of the obstacles and finally gets to play fetch with all the kids,” he says. “After reading PT Runs Free, I would like parents and kids to have an understanding of how amazing rescue dogs truly are. I would also like people to understand that no one is ever broken, if you never give up you can overcome anything in life. My hope for PT runs free is also that it inspires children who have undergone amputations and gives them someone to look up to. I also hope that other children reading it gain a greater sense of love and appreciation for other children who have lost a limb or may look different than them.”

    Currently, PT is recovering from another obstacle – he recently underwent ACL surgery. “Once he is ready, he will be on tour doing ‘Never Give Up’ workshops at local churches, YMCA, kids camps and more. We will take his book and read it to kids and PT will go around and pass out high fives and spread the message to Never Give Up,” Angie adds.

    The creation of PT’s book also inspired Angie & Joe McGilvrey to start their own 501 c3, Bella’s Heart of SWFL.

    RESCUE PUP WINS $10,000, HAS YET TO WIN HEART OF FOREVER FAMILY

    –Eleventh annual Dirty Dogs Contest from pet grooming leader Wahl sheds light on animal adoption, supports rescues–
    (See video of winning dogs)

    Zen was rescued from a horrendous hoarding case. She arrived at the shelter with mange that required regular medicated baths and severe damage to one of her eyes. After extensive grooming and care, the 6-month-old pup went from sick, to healthy, to spunky in no time. While this happy and relaxed girl is still looking for her forever home, she’s well on her way to an enlightened path as her amazing makeover won her the title of America’s Top Shelter Dog Makeover in the 11th annual Dirty Dogs Contest. It’s bittersweet stories like Zen’s that inspire the contest from pet industry leaders Wahl and Greater Good Charities. By spotlighting the influence grooming can have on dog adoption, and awarding the contest winners with grant money, it’s their hope more dogs will find forever homes and live the long, healthy and happy lives that they deserve.

    About the Dirty Dogs Contest

    For the last 11 years, Wahl has been on a mission to support dog adoption by donating pet grooming supplies to rescues and shelters nationwide. Because of these donations, hundreds of thousands of dogs are being transformed and readied for adoption.

    Each year, with the help of donated grooming supplies, hundreds of shelters share incredible transformation photos and stories. Ten of the most dramatic doggy makeovers are selected, and public votes determine the top 3 winners.

    The Humane Society of Dickson County in Dickson, TN, the rescue organization that saved Zen, will receive a $10,000 grant to further support their efforts. In addition, Brookhaven Animal Rescue League in Brookhaven, MS, the rescue that submitted second place winner Bentley, will receive a $3,000 grant, and third place dog Luna earned $2,000 for National Mill Dog Rescue in Colorado Springs, CO.

    “Grooming is essential for all our rescued animals. We’ve had dogs come in with severe matting, missing fur, hots spots, fleas and ticks; and grooming makes them so much more comfortable,” said Deb Walsh, volunteer at the Humane Society of Dickson County, “This $10,000 grant will greatly improve the lives of our current dogs and cats and enable us to save and help so many more.”
