Project: Equine Gait Analysis Using Wireless Inertial Sensor Networks

Acronym EquiMoves (Reference Number: 12304)
Duration 01/10/2018
Project Topic EquiMoves will build a system based on a network of wireless inertial sensors to help equine vets in early detection of lameness, the most costly health problem for the horse industry. The wireless sensors act as mobile measuring units attached to the legs of the horse, the withers, head, sternum and sacrum. The EquiMoves analysis toolbox quantifies scientifically the evolution of a horse’s gait, the progress of lameness, as well as its response to training, shoeing and nerve blocking.
