For quick detection of lameness in horses, we offer a so-called Lameness Locator at our Maichingen horse clinic. This system records your horse's gait and analyzes its movements using acceleration sensors. Even the smallest deviations from the norm may be detected in an objective gait analysis , allowing existing lameness to be detected in several places at once. [Nbsp] Often diagnoses can be made immediately. [Nbsp]
Compared to conventional measuring methods, our system offers the advantage that movement data may not only be recorded independent of location but also remotely. This is enabled by the use of IMUs (Inertial Measurement Units) ie special motion sensors attached to the horse's croup, neck and right front leg. The Lameness Locator System has proven its accuracy, speed and reliability and has been in use in many practices worldwide.
Results of years of research
By recording the data of thousands of horses, scientists have been able to create movement profiles enabling a computerized, objective assessment of gait. This research has created a wealth of experience that allows us, today, to easily identify lameness in horses. At our horse clinic we are glad to offer you diagnostics based on the Lameness Locator System.
