CatWalk XT: Valid tool for objective gait analysis in TBI mice model

Many people suffer from TBI and consequently also long-term gait and motor function deficits. For this reason, functional outcome became the focus when developing new treatment strategies for TBI.
gait-analysis-bone-fracture

Gait analysis after a bone fracture

Recovery after a bone fracture is more than just healing bone and soft tissue. Research on gait analysis is necessary in order to improve knowledge about bone regeneration and rehabilitation after lower extremity fractures!
motor-performance-femoral-nerve-injury

Assessing motor outcome in rats with peripheral nerve injury

At LBI Trauma, CatWalk XT is one of the most important tools to evaluate functional recovery in different animal models. Read more about what they found to be key factors when studying motor performance in rats with femoral nerve injury.

Traumatic Brain Injury: effects on the brain and motor coordination

Do you think of wearing a helmet while skiing, cycling or horseback riding? Read more about how the brain is affected after the head injury and how you can examine locomotion in a mouse model with TBI.
motor-coordination-muscular-dystrophy

Testing motor coordination in a mouse model with muscular dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy is a broad group of diseases recognized by the loss of muscle mass and strenght. Researchers tried to discover if gene therapy strategies can help with reducing symptoms.

Gait analysis at the PSDL using CatWalk

Our lab studies the Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinoses (NCLs) or Batten disease, which are a group of progressive and genetically inherited neurodegenerative diseases that affect children and young adults.
gait-analysis-parkinsons-rat-model

Using gait analysis to analyze Parkinson’s in rat model

Contrary to common methods, gait analysis can detect clinically relevant symptoms early on, researchers say.
gait-recovery-cervical-myelopathy

Gait recovery and other effects: treatment of cervical myelopathy

At the Dr. Michael Fehlings' lab, they are on a quest to find out what exactly causes the lower success rate of delayed surgery in cervical myelopathy.
autistic-mice-cerebellum

Autistic mice have motor learning difficulties specific to the cerebellum

Autism is often associated with social behavior deficits and repetitive behaviors. However, motor abnormalities are also a part of the behavioral spectrum. Recent studies have implicated the cerebellum.

How to let rats run perfectly

Letting animals walk freely in gait research. At Noldus, we strongly believe this is the way to go, so that is how our CatWalk XT system works.
