Equinosis Sponsored Wet Labs & Lecture

Wet Lab: Introduction to Objective Lameness Measurement

Thursday, August 4, 2022 @ 8 AM – 12 N

Kevin Keegan, DVM, MS, DACVS & Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM

This wet lab will provide an overview of inertial sensor-based measurement of equine lameness. The biomechanical model of lameness measurement  using vertical motion of the torso and the practical application of using inertial sensors to measure lameness in the straight line, lunge, and flexion tests will be covered.

Wet Lab: Advanced Lameness Measurement of Standardbreds

Thursday, August 4, 2022 @ 1 – 5 PM

Kevin Keegan, DVM, MS, DACVS & Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM

Harness horses present certain difficulties for detecting lameness compared to other horse breeds because they do not always trot regularly on a lead shank.  However, body-mounted inertial sensor data can be collected with horses tacked up and on the track.  Horses will be instrumented with body-mounted inertial sensors and evaluate for lameness while trotting (or pacing) under tack and on the race (or training) track. (Note: lab conducted with sulkies and drivers on the track).

Lecture: 20+ Years of Measuring Lameness in Horses

Friday, August 5, 2022 @ 5:05 – 6:05 PM

Kevin Keegan, DVM, MS DACVS

Lameness is a clinical sign.  The history of the development of an inertial sensor-based method of lameness detection and evaluation for equine veterinarians will be briefly presented.  Analysis of data from the measurement of lameness in thousands of equine cases over the years has provided information relevant to the diagnostic workup of horses with lameness.  Lameness variability, significance of change in lameness after blocking, and using inertial sensors to help predict primary source of lameness will be presented.  Special considerations for using body-mounted inertial sensors on harness horses will be presented.
