This week, our Office is highlighting Dr. Kevin Keegan for his work with the Lameness Locator. This device is an body mounted inertial sensor that can detect lameness in a horse. This device allows the user to detect and sample results that the human eye simply cannot. This method of detection allows for early prevention and care that simplifies a process and condition that is normally very complicated. We will be highlighting 2 more innovative entrepreneurs over the course of the next 2 weeks. Video profiles were created, compiled, and previewed at the MU Entrepreneurial Recognition Breakfast in celebration of MU technologies and faculty.
