Journal Reviewed: Effects of sensor position on kinematic data obtained with an inertial sensor system during gait analysis of trotting horses. Moorman VJ, Frisbie DD, Kawcak CE, McIlwraith CW. Journal of American Veterinary Medical Association | 2017 Mar 1;250(5):548-553z This study assessed the effects of altering the right forelimb gyroscope and pelvic accelerometer from their midline position on forelimb and hind limb lameness results. The right forelimb sensor was placed 2cm medial and lateral to the dorsal midline surface of the pastern. The pelvic sensor was placed 2cm cranial to, caudal to, and left and right of the...
