In this module, hind limb lameness is more complex: movement of the pelvis is realistic, consisting of both translation and rotation. While being able to practice the first approach your learnt in Module 2 (the 'mid-pelvis' method), you will learn a second assessment approach (the 'hips' method).
In this module you will learn to:
• Detect hind limb lameness based on realistic hip movement
• Determine the lame limb based on vertical displacement asymmetry or comparative movement of the hips
• Correctly differentiate between sound and mildly lame horses
Below you find the individual module components. Please go through them in order, from top to bottom. The rules for module 3 are the same as for module 1 and 2, however there are some additional buttons. Don't forget to fill in the questionnaire once you are finished - it helps us understand where we are good and what we need to improve. Thank you very much :-)
Module 3 | Video explanation
Duration: 3 1/2 minutes.
Please click on the icon to view the instruction video for this module. The instruction video contains a comprehensive explanation on how to determine lameness based on mid-pelvis and hips movement using different strategies..
You can view the video in full-screen mode. To exit the full-screen mode, press the 'Esc' key.
Module 3 | Warm-Up
Duration: approximately 5 minutes.
Before starting your training, we recommend to perform this quick warm-up exercise. It lets you become familiar with the interface and gives an idea about the detection threshold you are alerady starting out with. There is no adaptive learning involved in this warm-up.
