Advancing our understanding of equine muscle function through the integration of surface electromyography (sEMG) in equine gait analysis with Dr Lindsay Blair St George
Surface electromyography (sEMG) is gaining popularity within the ever-growing field of equine biomechanics. This is mainly due to the recognition that integration of sEMG in equine gait analysis is important for obtaining a comprehensive understanding of equine locomotion. This presentation will provide an overview of the use of sEMG in equine gait analysis, covering both clinical and sports performance applications.
Centaur Biomechanics was found in 2006 by Dr. Russell MacKechnie-Guire who graduated from Warwickshire College in 2006 with a BSc (Hons) in Equine and Human Sports Science and now holds a PhD in Equine Biomechanics graduating from the Royal Veterinary College in 2019. Russell’s thesis was titled ‘The Relationship between Saddle and Rider Kinematics, Equine Locomotion, and Thoracolumbar Pressures in Sports Horses’.
