About This Project

An unacceptable number of otherwise healthy horses are euthanized each year from lower limb ailments for which there is no satisfactory treatment. Amputation and prosthetic use is becoming available in small animals but this option remains elusive for horses. By biomechanically testing prosthetic implants for horses, we will be taking the first step towards developing new treatments for what is currently not treatable.
Blast off!
