FitBark is dedicated to developing research grade activity monitors that help advance science as well as our understanding of canine health.
Our activity monitors and connected platform has been helping a variety of research institutions and vet schools in North America, Europe and Asia validate new drugs, products and treatments.
Common clinical study applications include osteoarthritis, nutrition, weight management, pain management, ACL and other orthopedic surgeries, rehabilitation, sleep disorders, skin disorders, circadian rhythms etc.
Typical factors that might introduce inaccuracies such as the positioning of the FitBark around the collar and the tightness of the collar on a dog’s neck, for example, have proved to generate modest daily variations. A similar outcome was also found in previous literature where accelerometers for human use were applied to dogs.
