EQDOT: Low cost, high quality equine gait analysis
Multi-sensor technology with small and light-weight sensors communicating with your iOS or Android device and convenient data analysis on a Windows-based tablet!
A unique sensor platform:
The Xsens DOT sensors provide an ideal platform for equine gait analysis. Their ease-of-use -- controlled from an iOS or Android device -- paired with proven Xsens sensor-fusion algorithms for accurate and precise orientation and 3D acceleration output enable fast and easy data collectionn: 1) attach sensors to horse, 2) start logging of data via bluetooh and record the horse's movement, 3) download and analyse on Windows tablet.
Simple an powerful:
The 3-sensor setup (head, withers, midline of hind quarters) is beautifully simple in its setup -- attach 3 sensors to the upper body of a horse, no need to instrument limbs -- yet powerful in its output: head and pelvic movement asymmetry quantify movement deficits relating to a reduction in weight bearing or pushoff between the front- and hind limbs, withers movement aids decision making about the primary source of the asymmetries to the front- or hind limbs.
Compare assessments before/after interventions such as diagnostic analgesia or over the course of a treatment or rehabiliation regimen.
Back movement too!
The 4-sensor setup (3-sensor setup plus sensor in caudal thoracic or lumbar area) adds unequalled biomechanical knowledge to your decision making: 6 dimensional range of movement of one of the functionally most important anatomical areas, the thoraco-lumbo-sacral area. This is particularly useful for those horses with a suspected back problem or for mild hind limb lameness cases.
