Compensatory load redistribution in forelimb and hindlimb lameness


Weishaupt, Michael A (2005). Compensatory load redistribution in forelimb and hindlimb lameness. In: 51st Annual Convention of the AAEP, Seattle WA, USA, 3 December 2005 - 7 December 2005, 141-148.

Abstract

At the walk, in unilateral forelimb and hindlimb lameness, reduced loading of the lame limb is primarily compensated by concurrently loaded limbs. At the trot, the horse’s attempt to cope with weight-bearing forelimb lameness causes a reduction of stride impulse and its redistribution to the contralateral forelimb and diagonal hindlimb without producing an equivalent, compensatory increase of peak vertical forces in these limbs. In hindlimb lameness, impulse redistribution is limited to the contralateral hindlimb without compensatory increase in peak vertical forces.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
