Physiotherapy, Chiropractic applications:
The angle measurement tools are ideal for conformation analysis as they simultaneously measure both joint angle and segment length.
Also the T-square tool can be used to assess alignment.
The structure of ONTRACKEQUINE software readily adapts to its use in equine science, farriery and veterinary education. The use of video along with measurement tools allows the user to train his/her eye more effectively to look for or at specific situations or conditions. The database function within ONTRACKEQUINE organizes the way video and image files are stored and retrieved, allowing for files to be put into categories. This helps from a learning perspective as students can focus on specific equine movements.
A form is associated with each file where the student can make notes on what they see there and then without having to exit from the software. Images can be saved from the video clips and included in the form to further explain their findings. For the equine teacher, sample projects can be created containing video and images files, together with completed forms. These can be derived from actual case studies. Students can be asked to make their own findings, capture sample images and print off a report ready for assessment.
The software can be part of an online equine learning course thus allowing the students to undertake their own video analysis projects. The reports can then be emailed for assessment. Students can install the software on their own computers and simply book out a dongle for project work.
horse and/or rider training:
series of video clips and images can then captured and analyzed from
the training session. For the next session, just add a New Session to
the database and then new clips can be captured and compared to previous
sessions. Feedback can be entered on the forms which can be printed
out and handed straight to the rider/owner so improving your status
as a trainer.
