Never before has measuring the horse‘s back been so easy, fast and precise!

Our recommendation: Perform the scans in the stable area. There, you normally have ideal lighting conditions, an even and clean surface as well as enough space.
Four markers are placed onto the horse's back: At the ends of the shoulder blades, on the spine in the region of the withers and the 18th thoracic vertebrae.
The horse needs to stand relaxed and weight all legs equally. Here you can find the correct positioning of hooves.
Furthermore, the back should not be bent. The horse should look to the front.
While scanning the scanner should be held in a height of approx. 60 cm over the horse.Hint: Try to stand on a ladder or a small stair for comfortable scanning.
Switchable line lasers help you with correct positioning. The area between the red lines is captured.
The scanner should be held loosely in your hand so that it aligns perpendicular to the horse.
Furthermore the scanner must be kept horizontal. If all conditions are met, the scan is triggered and the horse's back will be captured within 1,5 seconds!
