We all hear or read about accidents that happen to horses and riders whilst they are out hacking, with the number of incidents that are reported on the rise over the last year.
Whether this is a car passing too close to a horse spooking and parting ways with their rider, the constant uncertainty of what might happen is always in the back of many equestrians’ minds when they decide to venture off the yard for a ride.
Statistics show that from February 2020 to February 2021, 1010 road incidents have been reported by riders, of which 130 people were injured from these incidents along with their horses.
The NEW must have piece of safety equipment for any rider is the Tocsen Crash Sensor, consequently in the event of an accident occurring where you are left unconscious and no one else around to call for help, the Tocsen Crash Sensor will do it for you making sure you get the help you need.
Very easy to use and compatible with any riding hat, simply stick the Tocsen Crash Sensor to your helmet behind your ear, download the Tocsen app, connect the app to the Tocsen Crash Sensor and you are good to go, just make sure you have your phone on you whilst you are out riding in order for it to work.
The Tocsen Crash Sensor works in the event of a fall by asking acoustically weather everything is ok, should it be a false alarm a countdown gives you enough time to disable the alarm manually.
However, if there is no response from the wearer then the list of emergency contacts in the app and all the Tocsen community users nearby are alerted, allowing the user to get the help that they need as quickly as possible.
The Tocsen Crash Sensor features a rechargeable battery that with normal use usually lasts around three months thanks to the advanced Bluetooth Low Energy technology. The sensor is also weather-proof meaning that even the rain can’t stop you from riding.
Compatible with Android, iOS and Huawei with no monthly fee and unlimited emergency contacts the Tocsen sensor is fantastic for not only horse riders but bike riders and all extreme sports enthusiasts.
