Quickly evaluate the way a patient is standing and shifting weight to identify if there is a lameness issue and where to look for it. Keep ahead of lameness with early detection especially in older dogs as part of a senior wellness exam.
What is it used for?
Collecting a standing weight bearing assessment removes subjectivity. A dog carries most of its body weight on both front legs: 30% left and 30% right; the remainder is carried by the rear legs: 20% left and 20% right. If the patient feels pain in one of the legs, he/she will shift weight to the other 3 legs. The stance analyzer will not only let us know if there is pain but also which leg the pain is in.
