Abstract

CatWalk XT is a complete gait analysis system for quantitative assessment of footfalls and locomotion in rats and mice. Utilizing Illuminated Footprints technology, the CatWalk XT software automatically identifies subtle changes within the dimensions, position, and timing of each footprint, calculating over 100 parameters for qualitative and quantitative analysis. But of those 100 parameters, which one do you need for your study? Furthermore, how do you make sense of the other parameters to answer your research questions? The goal of the current webinar is to answer those questions using a technique called data storytelling. Data are so much more than 'what” an animal does while traversing the walkway; through data storytelling the data can show “why” an animal does what it does. At its most simplistic, data storytelling consists of three components: data, narrative, and visuals. Using data obtained from CatWalk XT, this webinar will use data storytelling within the context of three research models: arthritis, spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury. By the end of this webinar, you will know how to use your CatWalk XT data to tell the story of your animal model.

Learning Objectives:

  • How and why to use data to tell a compelling story
  • Understand the main parameters in CatWalk XT
  • Use CatWalk XT data to describe research models such as arthritis, spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury
