2018 Objective Lameness Academy Recap

Our first 2-day Objective Lameness Academy course, Utilizing Inertial Sensors as an Objective Diagnostic Aid in the Equine Lameness Examination, took place March 2-3rd in Columbia, MO, where a wonderful group of veterinarians representing several corners of the world – US, Canada, Australia, Germany, and the UK – gathered to expand their expertise in using inertial sensors to evaluate equine lameness. A comprehensive day of lecture with Dr. Kevin Keegan followed by a full day of evaluating cases provided an intensive, hands on immersion course for participants.

We want to give a huge thank you to the staff of Stephens College for hosting the event, as well as all of our instructors, including Dr. Joanne Kramer and Dr. Shannon Reed of the University of Missouri, for making the course a great success!  Interested in attending a future course? Watch for future dates later this year!

“Very well organized course and fun to have horses to work up and discuss at the end. Thank you!”

“Great Course. Fantastic lectures and really interesting case selection for the wet lab and truly hands on experience. Made easier to get to next level of understanding the features of the Lameness Locator. Truly hope for a module 2 in the near future!”

“Both informative and practical”.

“The course was well designed and coordinated in all aspects. It was evident clinically that a great deal of time and effort had been put forth in preparing the wet lab stations and clinical cases. The course was educational and reinforcing.
