Lameness Locator

​The lameness locator is a diagnostic device used to detect asymmetries in a horse's gait. There are microelectronic sensors placed on the horse’s poll, right front pastern and pelvis that measure precise movement. The data collected from the sensors are then quantified and show location of asymmetry, severity of lameness and at what stance in the stride the lameness appears. This enables a veterinarian to objectively identify lameness in horses, reducing the time from evaluation to localization to treatment. It is portable, accurate, and fast. The system is designed to be used wherever lameness evaluations take place. The sensors are small and non-invasive. They track movement accurately within millimeters and read ten times faster than what our human eye can see.

This tool can help tremendously to track recovery stages of an injury, as it is able to quantify and put into graphs what our naked eye can not. The lameness locator can be helpful for diagnosing lameness and rehabilitation; it can also be used as a preventative measure to establish a wellness baseline.
