Part 1 - Application of an Inertial Sensor-Based Lameness Measurement System for Veterinary TechniciansCourse Description
This program, consisting of two hours of lecture time, will provide an overview of inertial sensor-based lameness measurement using the Equinosis Q system. The program will cover the biomechanical model of equine lameness measurement using vertical motion of the torso, and highlight the practical applications and considerations for veterinary technicians in the collection and basic interpretation of inertial sensor data for various aspects of the veterinary examination.
Part 2 - Equinosis Q Essentials Training
This self-paced program for veterinarians, veterinary technicians, nurses and assistants, and veterinary students covers the essentials of data collection procedures and guidelines when using the Equinosis Q.
