Phase Dispersions

Insights on the inter-limb coordination can provide you with valuable and important data for your research. Do you know that CatWalk XT calculates this data automatically? In this white paper we will take a closer look at Phase Dispersions values and how they are calculated, using simple and practical examples.

CatWalk XT and TBI mice

The CatWalk XT gait analysis system can be an incredibly useful tool in assessing the subtle motor deficits exhibited by mice post-TBI, making it ideal for detecting deficits that might not be readily observable to researchers. Read tips about how to use CatWalk XT for TBI models in this free white paper.

Getting the perfect runs

Familiarizing your rats with the CatWalk XT system before you start your experiment makes your job a lot easier. So how do you familiarize and motivate your rats? Kristina Ängeby Möller has a lot of experience with pain research and gait analysis in rats, and shares some tips and tricks in this free white paper!

Parameters in spinal cord injury

CatWalk XT is an invaluable tool to monitor and quantify gait, in this case for spinal cord injured rats. Parameters such as stride length, base-of-support, print area, and intensity are measured objectively and automatically by CatWalk XT.

Coordination measures in SCI

This user report also focuses on spinal cord injury (SCI). The parameters measured by CatWalk, in particular measures for coordination, are used to test the behavioral implications of voluntary locomotor training induced by enriched housing facilities.
