A new sensory and motor scale for the CIA arthritis mouse model

Dr. Bonnefont and her colleagues at IRMB in France just recently proposed a new ArthriSM scale to predict motor and sensory functional deficits in arthritis mouse model. Read more about it in her blog post!

Using CatWalk gait analysis to study monoarthritis in mice

Researchers are always looking for new ways to alleviate symptoms of arthritis. The CatWalk XT has been shown to be very useful in research involving arthritis in rodent models.

Time is of the essence - how you can use it in gait analysis

I have written two blog posts about static gait parameters. Now it’s time to talk about all four paws, and the time based relationships between them. If you ask me, we’ve been saving the best blog post for last!

Going the distance - and why it matters in gait analysis

A footprint, that is. With CatWalk XT, you can extract a lot of information from just one footprint. In this post, I am taking it a step further by talking about the relationship between prints.

What a print can tell

So what can one footprint tell you? Well, it could tell you a lot. Simply putting the paw in ink and studying the print left behind is one way to go about it, but there are far more sophisticated ways of footprint analysis.

What gait can tell: 3 blogs that will help you understand

The usefulness of gait is well established in research on spinal cord injury, ataxia, and arthritis. But in fact, research on all disorders that influence gait in any way, can benefit from gait and footfall analysis.
