New tool elevates balance & weight bearing analysis - Bioseb Newsletter - August 2019

Do you study conditions leading to
compromised balance and postural equilibrium?

Do you feel like the behavior tests available for your animal model are unsophisticated or correlative at best?

Bioseb has heard your frustration and developed a solution we are excited to tell you about in this season’s Newsletter - including a special offer for our readers.
Bioseb's Dynamic Weight Bearing Test for Rats and Mice
In the past, studying balance disruption associated with rodent models of vertigo & vestibular disorders, stroke, muscle degenerating disease and Parkinson’s disease meant you had limited functional measures from which to choose.
The most popular test allows you to observe rodent behavior while traversing one or more elevated narrow beams. Despite its wide use, this beam walking test presents drawbacks including:

• Subjective scoring
• Pre-training requirements
• Motivational stimuli
• Time wasted in motivating/training animals
• ...and much more...

Bioseb solved these issues and more by developing the Advanced Dynamic Weight Bearing 2.0 instrument for the measurement of balance and postural evolution:

• Operator-independent
• Customizable full-color graphics & tables
• No caveats associated to motivation, motor skill learning or operator bias
• No time wasted on motivating/training animals
• Automatic data from naturally exhibited behaviors
Bioseb's Dynamic Weight Bearing Test for Rats and Mice
Advanced Dynamic Weight Bearing 2.0 precisely measures changes in postural equilibrium in freely moving rodents by assessing weight distribution on each of their 4 paws, tail & other body parts. The easy to use software is configured to automatically calculate:

• Weight distribution and posture during periods of immobility and locomotion NEW
• Distance traveled, directionality NEW & speed
• Rearing events
• Turning/spinning NEW
