Ever wondered how your horse is really moving? Are there underlying compensations that the human eye cannot pick up? Equine Gait Analysis is the science behind quantifying the movement of a horse. Using digital technology to produce an extremely accurate measurement of movement.
It can be used for:
- Lameness diagnosis
- Injury prevention
- Treatment monitoring
- Performance enhancement.
The system is made up of 5 wireless motion sensors (inertial measurement units) attached to the poll, withers, croup and hips with double-sided tape. These provide very accurate measurements of their position in space which are wirelessly transmitted to a laptop in real-time. The system requires minimal setup – there are no banks of cameras and markers on the body and limbs. Analysis can be performed anywhere with a level surface. Results are available immediately, however, a more detailed report is prepared and usually ready within 2-3 days.
The Horse Vet Gait Analysis Service offers you a scientific, trusted capability to assess and quantify your horse’s gait for lameness diagnosis, injury prevention, treatment monitoring and performance enhancement.
