Horse nerds and tech geeks

At Sleip we are passionate about horse welfare and technology; about equine biomechanics and artificial intelligence. We're horse nerds and tech geeks, committed to making equine motion analysis accessible and easy to use. We combine veterinary science and pioneering technology to make a difference for horses and those who care for them. 

Ultimately, we're here to empower the equine community with insights and tools that strengthen the health, performance, and welfare of horses everywhere.

Our vision

Our vision is to improve horse welfare by making Sleip's technology available to all those who care for horses – improving diagnostics and promoting collaboration around the health of each horse. 

Prevention is a key component of this vision. Just as important is ensuring that horse owners and health professionals can work successfully together in addressing any small sign of lameness.

Elin is passionate about motion in horses both at work and in her private life (where dressage training takes up most of her time).



Axel Nyström

Axel is an engineer passionate about creating engineering solutions for biological applications. This intersection of fields is one that he has researched extensively, including at Oxford University, where he received his PhD.

Before founding Sleip, Axel worked with AI programming, primarily targeting computer vision and human pharmaceutical research.
