Video - A Demonstration of Modular Gait Analysis Technology to Help Identify Animal Lameness and Other Abnormalities

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.
