The Pelvic Sensor Cradle for Harness Horses

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, Pelvic Sensor Guidance, Utilizing the Equinosis Pelvic Pad

The pelvic sensor cradle accessory allows for secure attachment of the pelvic sensor on midline with simultaneous use of the harness crupper. Buy at https://equinosis.com/pelvic-sensor-cradle Step 1: Turn on the pelvic sensor. Place the pelvic sensor within the tunnel of the cradle so that it is seated in the center of the tunnel.  Step 2: Place a pelvic foam pad horizontally across the tuber sacrale.  Step 3: Attach two pieces of dual lock tape longitudinally (to create a patch of maximum width) in the center of the pad, between the tuber sacrale. Note: one piece of dual lock...

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: What do you recommend for keeping the pelvic sensor secure on sweaty horses?

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, Equipment, Instrumentation, Locked, Pelvic Sensor Guidance, Sweaty Horse

A: If the horse has long enough hair, then the pelvic clip can often be used alone on sweaty or wet horses. But if the hair is not long enough, or you find that you are not getting good grip with the clips, then use the pelvic sensor pads with some additional preparation. It is always best to start with a clean, dry horse.Before the horse sweats, spray a human or veterinary medical grade adhesive on the area of the tuber sacrale where the pelvic sensor pad will be placed. Let it dry. *If the horse is already...

FAQ: Does pelvic asymmetry matter when using the Equinosis Q?

FAQ: Does pelvic asymmetry matter when using the Equinosis Q?

By Equinosis Logo Equinosis Staff | Updated on | Equinosis Staff, FAQ, Locked, Pelvic Sensor Guidance

A commonly asked question by practitioners is if pelvic asymmetry has an effect on hindlimb lameness results; and, if so, how should it be handled. Pelvic asymmetry may have an effect on the Q results if the sensor is significantly tilted. Early recommendations in using the Q on horses with pelvic asymmetry were that the results may falsely indicate or elevate impact type lameness on the high side and push off type lameness on the low side. More recent objective study of this anatomic/conformation abnormality by experimentally wedging the sensor on a 450 angle on anatomically normal horses has shed...
