Evaluation of a wireless activity monitoring system to quantify locomotor activity of horses in experimental setting
Conclusions: the dual-mode accelerometric device was sufficiently accurate to quantify and compare locomotor activity in horses moving at different speeds and gaits. Positioning the device on the hindlimb allowed for the most accurate results. The step count function can be useful but must be manually corrected, especially at the walk.
