OBJECTIVE To determine repeatability of a wireless, inertial sensor-based lameness evaluation system in horses. ANIMALS 236 horses. PROCEDURES Horses were from 2 to 29 years of age and of various breeds and lameness disposition. All horses were instrumented with a wireless, inertial sensor-based motion analysis system on the head (accelerometer), pelvis(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess the analytic sensitivity of an inertial sensor system for detection of the more severely affected forelimb in horses with bilateral lameness. ANIMALS 18 adult horses with forelimb lameness. PROCEDURES Horses were fitted with inertial sensors and evaluated for lameness with a stationary force plate as they were trotted in a straight(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare data obtained with an inertial sensor system with results of subjective lameness examinations performed by 3 experienced equine veterinarians for evaluation of lameness in horses. ANIMALS 106 horses. PROCEDURES Horses were evaluated for lameness with a body-mounted inertial sensor system during trotting in a straight line and via(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate associations between inertial sensor and stationary force plate measurements of hind limb lameness in horses. ANIMALS 21 adult horses with no lameness or with mild hind limb lameness. PROCEDURES Horses were instrumented with inertial sensors and evaluated for lameness with a stationary force plate while trotting in a straight(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate head, pelvic, and limb movement to detect lameness in galloping horses. ANIMALS 12 Thoroughbreds. PROCEDURES Movement data were collected with inertial sensors mounted on the head, pelvis, and limbs of horses trotting and galloping in a straight line before and after induction of forelimb and hind limb lameness by use of sole pressure.(More)
