AI and horse health
Sleip develops AI-tools to aid in a better understanding of how and why horses move the way they do. We are working towards a future of fewer instances of equine lameness, a faster recovery process in the event of lameness, and a healthier equine community at large.
Drawing on decades of equine biomechanical research and advances in artificial intelligence, Sleip develops technology to provide the equine community with information and tools to make better decisions for the health and performance of each individual horse. Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, our customers include top sport horse veterinarians and equine veterinary practices around the globe. Including many national Olympic team vets.
Our vision is to improve horse welfare by making Sleip's technology available for all those who care for horses – improving diagnostics and promoting collaboration around the health of each individual horse.
Prevention is a key component of this vision. Just as important is ensuring horse owners and health professionals can work successfully together in addressing any small sign of lameness. Continuously and successfully tracking the horse's progress to ensure optimal rehab into full performance.

Elin has a background as a veterinary equine orthopedic researcher at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala, Sweden, with a focus on preventing and discovering equine lameness at an early stage. Axel has extensive experience, including as developer, within the field of AI. He graduated from Oxford University with a PhD in Engineering Methods for Biological Problems.
