2018 Objective Lameness Academy - UPDATE

Utilizing an Inertial Sensor Based System as an Objective Diagnostic Aid in the Equine Lameness Examination 

“We have been conducting objective lameness evaluations with body-mounted inertial sensors in clinical cases at the University of Missouri now for over 15 years. We have learned a lot about how to use this equipment most effectively and efficiently. This course is designed to provide veterinarians with the information and tools to quickly assess results, to understand results in difficult cases, and how to use the equipment to shorten lengthy lameness evaluations. All aspects of the lameness evaluation; straight line, lunging, flexion tests, under saddle, multiple limb lameness, and assessment of blocks, will be covered and demonstrated.” Kevin G. Keegan, DVM, MS, Dipl. ACVS, Professor of Equine Surgery, University of Missouri

Equinosis® is excited to announce the advent of an intensive 2-day objective lameness evaluation learning experience. Whether you are new to inertial sensor based lameness measurement or have been measuring lameness for years, the Equinosis® Objective Lameness Academy will elevate your expertise, your confidence, and the care you provide. Join Dr. Kevin Keegan, Dr. Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, and other experienced evaluators in this high contact, hands-on course.  

Participants arrive in Columbia, MO on Thursday evening. Full classroom and clinic days on Friday and Saturday, including small group full patient workups, and intense clinical modules for lunging, manipulations, blocking, & ridden evaluations.  

“I am very excited to have two full days to deliver this immersion course. My goal is that every attendee will walk away with a solid understanding of the principles behind using inertial sensors in lameness measurement. We will cover all aspects of the lameness evaluation process with the equipment, and hone in on some of the finer points of clinical application.” Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM, Dir. of Veterinary Services, Equinosis, LLC  

All-inclusive accommodations for 3 nights (Th, F, Sa), meals, and ground transportation in Columbia, MO. Participants are encouraged to complete approximately 4 hours of prerequisite video training online.
