NeoGAIT – testing motor development from birth to adulthood
In collaboration with Inserm UMR 676 in Paris, PhenoPups developed a new device integrating innovative lighting and video recording technologies. It allows full characterization and quantitative scoring of the postnatal stages of gait development in newborn rodent (crawling, pelvic lift, pivoting, coordinated gait). The device has already been used in a neurodevelopmental study (Dehorter, Michel et al. 2011).
PhenoPups also performs psychomotor tests known as the Fox Battery (Fox et al. 1965) during the first weeks of life and Digigait® evaluation in adult mice.
