This program, consisting of 7 hours of lecture and 6 hours of wet lab evaluating live horses, will provide an in-depth description of the principles of inertial sensor-based measurement of equine lameness as well as the practical application of these principles.
What you’ll learn
- The biomechanical model of lameness measurement using vertical motion of the torso.
- The practical application of using inertial sensors to measure lameness in the straight line, lunge, flexion tests, and diagnostic blocks.
- Use of inertial sensors in the ridden evaluation.
- Use of inertial sensors in the pre-purchase examination.
Course space is limited to ensure a highly interactive and engaging attendee experience.
