Bioseb innovates rodent outcome measures for osteoarthritis - Bioseb Newsletter - May 2019
Dear Dr. %FIRSTNAME% %LASTNAME%,

The goal in developing Outcome Measures for Osteoarthritis on live rodents is to evaluate multiple parts of the pain experience including reflexive hyperalgesia measures, sensory and affective dimensions of pain and impact of pain on function and quality of life.

How do we best achieve this in rodent models? Bioseb has developed innovative solutions, and several new publications show ground-breaking applications for our instruments!
VISIT BIOSEB AT OARSI 2019 ON BOOTHS 15 & 16:
SEE HOW WE INNOVATED RODENT OUTCOME MEASURES
FOR OSTEOARTHRITIS RESEARCH
Foot Misplacement Apparatus
Bioseb's Foot Misplacement Apparatus for Rats and Mice
An automatic solution for the objective modeling of locomotion disorders in mice & rats, with respect to pain (detecting stumbling for example) and motor/psychomotor skills. An ideal solution for studies on osteoarthritis, degenerative diseases, ataxia, etc.

Features:
• Operator-independent scoring
• Flexible: remove bars to create difficulties
• Accurate: sensors above/below the ladder
• Automatic: differentiation fore/hind paws
Advanced Dynamic Weight Bearing
Bioseb's Advanced Dynamic Weight Bearing for Rats and Mice
The only operator-independent, spontaneous pain test not requiring animal restraint. DWB precisely measures changes in postural equilibrium in freely moving rodents by assessing their weight distribution on each paw, tail, and other body parts.

Features:
• Operator-independent
• No animal restraint - no stress
• New : software interface completely redesigned for a user-friendly browsing
See you soon in Toronto!
See these OA research workhorses such as the Dynamic Weight Bearing device, the Foot Misplacement Apparatus, the Spontaneous Activity Wheels and many others at OARSI 2019 World Congress on booths 15 & 16. Bioseb technical experts will be available to demonstrate a full range of motor-and pain-associated behavior testing equipment and discuss their application in your research program.
