At Equinosis® our mission is to assist and equip the equine practitioner by developing and providing wireless sensor solutions for collection of biological data useful in the diagnosis of equine disease.
The Lameness Locator® technology evolved from the development of motion analysis algorithms at the University of Missouri using a high-speed camera and treadmill-based system. The algorithms were developed in a collaborative effort between practicing equine veterinarians and engineers for the specific purpose of lameness evaluation in horses. T
Equinosis® LLC was founded in 2007 in Columbia, Missouri with its first objective to make the Lameness Locator® available to equine veterinarians and to elevate the quality of care, health, and well-being of horses.he motion variables most likely to detect and quantify lameness were first found using sophisticated data mining search techniques and then tested and validated with robust neural network classification schemes. Later collaboration between the University of Missouri and the Hiroshima Institute of Technology in Japan adopted this analysis approach to a system of wirelessly-transmitted, body-mounted inertial sensors, ideal for field use.
Ongoing research and development endeavors have been and continue to be supported by the National Science Foundation’s Small Business Technology Transfer Research program. Most recently, Equinosis was awarded $500,000.00 for its STTR Phase 2 project to be carried out through September 2012.
