EquiMoves

an advanced system for quantitative gait analysis
Why choose Equimoves

Key features

  • The only mobile equine gait analysis system in the world that measures and produces reports in all gaits & all surfaces.
  • The only mobile equine gait analysis system in the world that has sensors on the upper body & on the legs.
  • It can measure in one measurement all gaits and events.
  • It captures movements that might be close to impossible to detect with the naked eye.
  • EquiMoves provides the best accuracy and precision on the market.
How it works

System overview

Hardware

Wireless inertial sensors for capturing motion data are attached to the legs, the withers, the pelvis and the head of the horse. The sensor data is streamed to a gateway connected to the computer.

Software

The EquiMoves motion processing software computes the relevant parameters and analyzes the horse’s gait for lameness and performance assessment.

Reports

In addition to the in depth analysis, the EquiMoves software offers basic or extended PDF reports for each test.
