Comparing the pelvis kinematics of able-bodied children during normal gait and when riding a therapeutic horse
Contributor(s):: Brandon Rhett Rigby, Brian A. Garner (adviser)
Hippotherapy is a treatment strategy that uses horse movement as physical therapy tool for clients with a broad range of diagnoses including cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. The prevailing theory is that the gait motion of the therapeutic horse provides sensory stimulus and movement...

Influence of stocking density on tonic immobility, lameness, and tibial dyschondroplasia in broilers
Contributor(s):: Sanotra, G. S., Lawson, L. G., Vestergaard, K. S.
This study assessed the effect of stocking density on the development of fear reaction (tonic immobility), lameness (gait), and tibial dyschondroplasia in broiler chicks of mixed sex. During 3 experiments, the study used 49 500 broiler chicks (Ross 208). Of these, 432 focal chicks were randomly...

Lameness is consistently better at predicting broiler chicken performance in mobility tests than other broiler characteristics
Contributor(s):: Caplen, G., Hothersall, B., Nicol, C. J., Parker, R. M. A., Waterman-Pearson, A. E., Weeks, C. A., Murrell, J. C.
To determine whether lame broilers are in pain it is necessary to compare measures of lameness and mobility before and after analgesic treatment. Such measures should not be unduly affected by other bird characteristics. This study assessed the performance of lame (gait score, GS 3-4) and...
