Linear locomotion assistant for connected animal

The locomotion assistance system allows a connected animal (ephy, opto, self-ad) to freely move in a large open environment.

Linear Locomotion assistanT for connected animal


Fine behaviors of a connected animal are very tricky to measure, mainly because we have to make sure that the external systems do not influence the animal. Mechanical constraints due to the cables, fibers or tubes, often influence the locomotor activity of the animals. We developed a locomotion assistant that allows the animal to move freely in an open environment.



According to your equipment and your experiment room, we propose two options:

  • the installation of an aluminum bar in our room, without drilling any hole
  • the adaptation of the system to your existing setup, only if the clearance is sufficient
