Three dimensional motion analysis for monitoring of rehabilitation and high performance training of the equine athlete.
The aims of his project is validate several rehabilitation techniques for horses through the kinematic three – dimensional analysis of their locomotion with the vicon system. The population of this study are horses with previous clinical diagnosis that are admitted on rehabilitation center, and a specific protocol for musculoskeletal pathologies diagnosed is applied to them. Biomechanical evaluation is performed prior to initiating the protocols, throughout its execution and at the end of it.
