Artificial intelligence and GPS sensor technology for 3D analyses in the biomechanics
of jumping horses
Pathologies of the locomotor system in the horse are strongly linked to competition and daily
work sessions. In the show jumping horse, repetitive loads and unsuitable surface conditions too often cause serious and potentially career-ending injuries. In this context, the authors wanted to demonstrate the use of a non-invasive sensor integrated in the girth to characterize the important criteria that define good biomechanics in a jumping horse (Alogo Move Pro® Sensor). Based on AI (artificial intelligence) and GPS (global positioning system) sensor technology, this device accurately
measures parameters that may help in identifying crucial aspects of jumps relevant either for performance or injury prevention.
