FAQ: How important is proper sensor position and secure attachment?

By Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM | Updated on | Equipment, Head Sensor Guidance, Instrumentation, Locked, LT Schroeder, Pelvic Sensor Guidance, RF Sensor Guidance

  Answer: Sensor positioning is important due to the necessary orientation of the sensing element (accelerometer or gyroscope) inside of the sensor device relative to the horse. But more specifically, each sensor has a somewhat different level of “forgiveness” in terms of the importance of precise positioning. RF SENSOR The right forelimb sensor contains a gyroscope, which should be placed on the dorsal midline of the RF pastern. It measures angular velocity of the distal limb in the sagittal plane. Because of this, rotation of the sensor too far off midline will affect the output of the gyro signal....

User Tip: How to Use the Equinosis Q Pelvic Sensor Pad & Pelvic Clip Kit

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, Equipment, FAQ, Instrumentation

The Pelvic Sensor Pad provides two options and functions for pelvic sensor attachment. It provides additional surface area for the Pelvic Clip to grab and hold. It provides a secure, dry surface for Dual Lock tape to adhere. NOTE: The Pelvic Sensor Pad replaced the previous method of Pelvic Sensor attachment (Gaffer’s tape), making sensor attachment easier, faster, less expensive, and more aesthetic. Pelvic Sensor Pad Placement Make sure the horse is standing SQUARE in hind limbs. Locate the most dorsal aspect of the midline of the horse between the sacral tuberosities. Adhere the pad across...

FAQ: How do I turn on/off Gen5 sensors?

By Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM | Updated on | Equipment, Instrumentation, Locked, LT Schroeder, Sensor Guidance, User Tip

Please be advised that some Generation 5 sensors may turn on differently than your other sensors, depending on the ship date of your original sensors. TO TURN THE SENSOR ON: wave/pass magnet near the Magnetic Switch until the Green LED starts to blink. TO TURN THE SENSOR OFF: HOLD the magnet STEADY in the same area for approximately 6 seconds.
