Accelerometer Based System for Lameness Quantification in Dogs

Project start date

1 March 2014

Project aim

The aim of this study was to evaluate temporarily induced lameness in dogs with different accelerometer systems to quantify lameness. This technology can potentially be an effective, practical and portable tool for lameness evaluation of dogs in the clinical set-up.

This study is a collaboration between the School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Surrey and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), Sweden and took place in the Canine Movement Laboratory of the latter.


Travelling and accommodation in Sweden of Dr Constanza Gómez Álvarez was possible thanks to Erasmus Staff Academic Exchange.
