EquiMoves achieves a major milestone by publishing a comprehensive validation study in the Sensors journal. This innovative equine gait analysis system has been developed in collaboration by Rosmark Consultancy, University of Utrecht and Inertia Technology. It uses up to eight ProMove-MINI wireless sensor nodes and a dedicated data processing framework for computing the horse motion outputs. It can be used in various equine gait modes, and analyzes both upper-body and limb movements. The results presented in the Sensors article show that EquiMoves can be a good aid for veterinarians during gait analysis, for example during lameness exam or sports performance analysis. It can measure several important parameters within a level of accuracy that is capable of detecting gait changes due to lameness or performance degradation.
