Veterinary Motion Analysis Lab Hopes to Improve Orthopedic Treatments for Pets and People

Diagnosing and treating service dogs and companion animals with orthopedic injuries can be challenging. Often, observable limps or the occasional whine may be the only clues for veterinarians when assessing arthritis or soft tissue injuries in pets. Now, using cutting-edge technologies, veterinarians at the University of Missouri are revolutionizing the diagnosis and treatment of dogs with musculoskeletal injuries. The Motion Analysis Laboratory (MAL) opened in 2017 at the MU Veterinary Health Center. Techniques and practices learned in the MAL will also help inform scientists and clinicians engaged in human studies.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
