We are proud to announce a state-of-the-art addition to our diagnostic services, the Lameness Locator® by Equinosis™. This cutting edge diagnostic tool objectively detects and quantifies body movement irregularity in a horse using small, wireless, body-mounted inertial sensors and a hand-held tablet PC. The setup of the sensors is quick, easy and non-invasive. The data is transmitted wirelessly in real time and analyzed in seconds on the tablet PC. Information provided indicates the affected limb or limbs, the severity of lameness and the timing of peak pain in the stride of each limb. This can be especially valuable when diagnosing mild lameness.
Lameness Locator® enables a veterinarian to objectively identify lameness in horses, reducing time from evaluation to localization to treatment. The system provides an analysis that indicates whether the horse is lame, the severity of the lameness, the limb or limbs involved, and the part of the motion cycle at which peak pain is occurring. Data collection is in real time and veterinarians are free to perform their routine lameness evaluation without distraction.
Lameness Locator® system is completely portable and designed to work in the field. Wireless sensors and outdoor computer with onboard analysis allow use wherever lameness evaluations are performed.
Instrumentation is quick, easy and completely non-invasive. Three small sensors are attached to the horse’s head, pelvis and right forelimb.
The sensors measure up to 20x faster than the human eye and track head and torso movement accurately to within millimeters.
More than 40 veterinary colleges around the globe, including three-fourths of all U.S. teaching clinics, are training the next generation of doctors with Equinosis® technology.
