Animal gait analysis laboratory

The human gait analysis laboratory also allows the analysis of animal movement. For example, a gait analysis was carried out on a dog that had the hoof amputated on its right hind leg, with the aim of having all the kinematic and dynamic data available to design and build a prosthesis that would replace the lost part of the limb.

Dog gait analysis

  • Kinematic: angles, speeds, gait pattern, etc.
  • Dynamic: joint torques, external reactions, etc.

Prosthesis design with 3D printing

  • Custom prosthesis
  • Design based on motion capture and analysis
  • Evaluation of the effects of the prosthesis
