While animals lack the ability to speak a language, there’s a lot that can be learned about their health simply by observing their walk. Veterinarians and animal scientists are trained to identify visual clues of animal lameness, orthopedic disease, and other kinetic/kinematic traits that could signal trouble.
However, visual identification of gait abnormalities is only telling part of the story. There are certain nuances that can indicate potentially serious issues that may not be clear to the naked eye. Low-profile pressure-mapping walkways, like the Animal Strideway™ system, can become useful tools to tell the animal’s complete gait story.
In this video demonstration, Marshall Kendall, PhD., shares an in-depth demonstration into how veterinarians and researchers have used Animal Strideway to collect gait data on quadruped animals.
This demonstration covers:
00:00 - Data collection period with a healthy dog
01:56 - How to Assign Paw Strikes in the Software
03:42 - Analyzing a Single Pass with Strike Boxes and Data Tables
04:52 - Analysis from the Gait Table to Calculate Gait Distance, Velocity, and More
05:32 - Analysis from the Stance-Stride Table
07:19 - Using "Patient Record" to Apply Animal Weight, and Calculate Max Force and Pressure
08:01 - Analysis from the Symmetry Table
10:26 - Using Graphs to Review Force Data
In this webinar, Zoe Self Davies (BSc. (Hons), PhD, PGCHE, FHEA) will demonstrate different ways to use pressure mapping walkways for canine gait analysis, with principles that can apply to almost any quadruped or biped species.
