Investigating the relationship between anatomy and function in athletic animals.
Our group investigates normal locomotory function, to understand risk factors and to develop new ways of preventing damage and optimising performance.
- Hoof interaction with the track surface.
- Modelling the fetlock, carpus, tarsus
- Mechanically related movements.
- Muscle spindle density and proprioception
- Respiratory noise and ecg variations in relation to specific pathology during fast exercise
- Measuring training load.
