Dr. Sieber will discuss practical tips for using the Q in the field - how to evaluate and monitor Thoroughbreds & Standardbreds with objective lameness measurements. Q and A and discussion time will be allotted.
Equinosis CEO Andy Wolter and Christina Frigast , MRCVS, CERP, Equinosis Certified Practitioner, Independent Consultant, Eickemeyer, UK will discuss maximizing return on investment and revenue generation for your practice using the Q, including guidance on how to charge for lameness measurement services and promote the system within your practice.Learn more & register
A roundtable discussion on using the Equinosis Q in the ridden evaluation.
Panelists Mark Baus, DVM of Grand Prix Equine and Christina Frigast, MRCVS, CERP, ECP, Independent Consultant Eickemeyer UK will share their thoughts on using the ridden evaluation as part of the lameness and performance evaluation and how they incorporate objective measurement into the process.
This series currently includes:
- In Depth: Evaluating the Lunge and Flexion Tests with Objective Measures
- In Depth: Evaluating Diagnostic Analgesia Using Objective Measures
Director of the Equine Performance and Rehabilitation Center at the University of Tennessee Dr. Steve Adair is to discuss how to formulate a rehabilitation plan and assess improvement over time. Dr. Adair will be joined by Equinosis Certified Practitioner Dr. Christina Frigast (Independant Consultant, Eickemeyer, UK), who will provide case examples utilizing the Equinosis Q in the rehabilitation process.

- Part 1: Utilizing Inertial Sensors in Equine Lameness Measurement - the Model, the Method, and Biomechanics
- Part 2: Utilizing the Q with Lameness Locator - Software Navigation and Data Collection Guidelines
- Part 3: Utilizing Inertial Sensors in Equine Lameness Measurement - Evaluating the Straight Line
- Part 4: Utilizing Inertial Sensors in Equine Lameness Measurement - Evaluating Lunging, Flexions, Blocks, and Under Saddle
Participants in this two part series will be provided with an overview of using the Equinosis Q rider module.
In "The Ridden Evaluation Part 1: Utilizing the Q Rider Module and Data Interpretation", Dr. Laurie Tyrrell will discuss data collection guidelines, data interpretation and expected rider influences, along with guidance for those conducting ridden evaluations without the rider module.
In "The Ridden Evaluation Part 2: Practical Field Applications with the Q", Dr. Christina Frigast will discuss practical applications and tips on using the Equinosis Q in the ridden evaluation. Discussion will include case examples with report interpretation guidance.
Interpreting diagnostic analgesia results can be challenging for equine practitioners. Dr. Schramme will discuss the various possibilities for false positive and false negative results and how knowledge of these potential pitfalls can help avoid misinterpretation of responses, improving the diagnostic workup and outcome.
This presentation will offer an overview of the recent 1224 horse study published in JAVMA comparing inertial sensor measurement and final determination of lameness. The prevalence of multiple limb lameness will be emphasized, including causes, expected patterns of compensatory lameness, and how the distribution of lameness can guide the evaluation process.
Attend for a brief overview of inertial sensor based lameness measurement and its potential application in the monitoring of TB racehorses for detecting and preventing racing and training injury.
Presented by Maarten Oosterlinck, DVM, PhD, Dip ECVSMR & ECVS, of Ghent University. Co-hosted by Laurie Tyrrell-Schroeder, DVM and panelist Sandra Starke, BSc, MSc, PhD.
Dr. Oosterlinck will discuss the limitations of subjective evaluation in the equine lameness examination and an overview of the findings from his study conducted with Dr. Starke, “Reliability of equine visual lameness classification as a function of expertise, lameness severity and rater confidence”. Computer animations from lamenesstrainer.com demonstrating various degrees of asymmetry and audience polling will be used for an interactive attendee experience.
Case Study Hours consist of case reviews and discussion on various topics.
Upcoming & Past topics:
- Case Study Review: It didn't block to the foot, now what?
- Case Study Hour: Proximal Suspensory Desmitis
