MU veterinarian targets horse health hitch with sensor business

Dr. Kevin Keegan has been working in veterinary medicine for nearly 35 years. In that time, Keegan has seen an issue troubling to horse lovers and veterinarians alike: ineffective ways of detecting lameness in horses.

Keegan has worked with multiple engineers ranging from locations as close by as the University of Missouri and as far away as Japan to develop what is now the Equinosis Q with Lameness Locator. The tool is designed to help measure lameness, or changes in a horse’s gait, in a non-invasive way.

At the time of founding, Andy Wolter, the company’s current CEO, was working with a business consulting firm in St. Louis. Keegan and Wolter eventually joined forces to work on Equinosis.

“It is changing the way veterinary medicine is done,” Wolter said


The pitch:

The company: Equinosis makes a sensor system designed to help veterinarians measure lameness in horses in a non-invasive way.
