Dynamic Endoscopy - "The Over Ground Scope"

It allows for an examination of the upper airway as the horse is galloping. The video is recorded on a small laptop on a saddle pouch. It is our experience that horses don't mind the scope once it is in position for a few minutes and work as though it was a normal piece of work or exercise.

It is being a major source of information on correctly diagnosing "wind problems". It affords the surgeons to accurately treat the horse. An ECG can be carried out at the same time. It is the future.
