Clinical Tip: Longitudinal Reporting Functionality to Evaluate Horses Over Time

Clinical Tip: Longitudinal Reporting Functionality to Evaluate Horses Over Time

By Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM | Updated on | CSV Export, Evaluations View, Locked, LT Schroeder, OES Members Only, Recheck AIDE, Summary Report

Lameness Locator software includes multiple data reporting features that allow for comparison of trials over time. This longitudinal information can be invaluable for assessing the effectiveness of therapies, rehabilitation progress, or a horse's condition over the course of a competitive meet or riding season. The Recheck Comparison Report Note: Recheck comparison reports are only available for straight line trials, not for flexion or lunging trials. To create a comparison of another trial type (e.g.  two lunge left trials), the General Comparison report can be used to view the reports side by side. No AIDE calculation of percent change...

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

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....

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

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.
