Dr. Robert Hodgson from Charles River Laboratories talks in a webinar about the evolution of equipment for the exploration of the motor deficits in animal models with Parkinson’s Disease and the methods available for the study of kinematic gait analysis, such as the MotoRater.
What is the Motorater?
MotoRater is a system for kinematic gait analysis for mice and rats with high sensitivity. It evaluates different motion modalities: overground walking, skilled ladder walking, wading in water and swimming. Additionally, the MotoRater allows testing in water, which helps evaluate impaired rodent models.
What disease models can be researched with the MotoRater?
The following disease models can be analyzed: stroke, Huntigton’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Batten disease, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and other rate diseases.
Check the MotoRater page for further information about the system, scientific publications, and brochure.
