1 – Install the sensor on the horse’s bridle, in the Movin’Smart app: choose your horse and start the acquisition by clicking on “Perform a trotting”.
2 – During the trotting, keep your phone on you, near your horse sensor. Once you have done the trotting, click on “Finish trotting” or wait for the end of the automatic asquisition after 3 minutes.
3 – The analysis of your trotting is immediately proposed to you, based on two parameters: “symmetry and variability”. Each “trot” represents each trotting sequence. (For example for a classic trotting, you will have a trot for the go, then a trot for the return).
4 – The “My trottings” tab gives you access to the history of all your recorded trottings.
Once my trotting session is over, data analysis is done automatically. Two parameters are presented: they allow to evaluate the quality of the locomotion of the horse during the trotting.
Symmetry: Indicator of symmetry of the pose of diagonal Right and Left. Perfect symmetry gives a regular locomotion (GREEN witness). If the degree of irregularity increases, the diagonal concerned becomes ORANGE then RED.
Overall variability: Indicator of the overall quality of trotting. A regular movement without parasitic movements (deviations, pronounced movements of the neck for example) gives a good trotting (GREEN witness). If the variability increases, the indicator becomes ORANGE then RED.
The screens represent four trots, for different horses
- the screen 1 shows a regular trot without irregularity or asymmetry
- the screen 2 shows a trot with “average” asymmetry on the left diagonal with “average” variability due to the latter
- the screen 3 shows a trot with a “strong” asymmetry on the left diagonal with a “strong” variability due to the latter
- the screen 4 shows a trot without asymmetry, however the regularity is “average”. This degradation can be caused by a parasitic movement, localized irregularities at acceleration or deceleration, etc.
