Topic outline

  • Module 1: Introduction to Inertial Sensor-Based Lameness Measurement: the Biomechanics, Model and Method

    This session provides an overview of lameness as a clinical sign, and what is the most sensitive indicator of lameness. A discussion on the biomechanics of equine lameness includes an overview of using the vertical motion of the torso (head and pelvis) in the measurement of fore and hind limb lameness. Caveats of using limb and pelvic rotation movement in the measurement of lameness will be discussed.  Head and pelvic movement trajectories based on timing of lameness (impact to push off) will be explained.
