MK10 RACEHORSE SIMULATOR
The new MK10 simulator is the latest evolution of the Racewood racing simulators. It retains the saddle, bit, rein, lean and whipping sensors of its predecessor the MK9. It also has new pressure sensitive neck sensors that allow detailed analysis of where, and how much pressure jockeys exert when 'pushing out' on the simulator. This is combined with new positional sensors which cross reference the data from the neck in relation to the stride pattern of the horse. This allows instructors and coaches to work on the jockey’s synchronisation with the stride movements of the simulator.
The MK10 is also compatible with ant+ heart sensors and comes with a heart rate wrist strap. This introduces heart rate data and cardiovascular fitness into training programs.
Racing around a virtual racetrack will be introduced via a future software update.

The software includes instruction screen
and auto-training modes. Instruction
mode allows the instructor full control of
the simulator while showing input from
the sensors on the screen. The speed of
the simulator can be set using either a
handheld controller or by pressure on
the neck sensor.
The auto-training mode puts jockeys
through a set routine of holding the
bit, leaning, whipping and pushing for
the finish line. Data from all the sensors
and the heart rate monitor is recorded
throughout sections of the routine.
The rider is then presented with detailed
feedback on their accuracy, fitness and
balance in the different sections of the
routine with an overall score awarded.
