Pressure Mapping for Equine Hoof Assessment
"The in-shoe system has the potential to answer numerous questions for the farriers, veterinarians and horse owners. We have never had the ability to produce this type of solar force data from horses competing in their normal working environment. I am extremely excited to incorporate this Tekscan system into future research of PennVet's Applied Polymer Research Laboratory."
- Patrick Reilly
Patrick Reilly, Chief of Farrier Services at the New Bolton Center in Pennsylvania, uses the Hoof™ System for horse gait analysis. Patrick came to Tekscan after determining that he needed a sensor thin enough to fit between the hoof and the shoe, yet strong enough to endure testing in the field. The Hoof system fit the bill for Reilly's work with both living horses and cadavers.
