Velocity / Acceleration Race Track for Small Animals

This custom-built runway race-track is used to assess acceleration and velocity of small animals as they run end to end. The runway measures 2.5 meters long and has an adjustable width between 2.5  and 12.5 centimeters. Walls are designed with height extensions to accommodate larger animals that may be able to jump out of the track lane.  Photo beam “curtains” are spaced evenly at 10 centimeter intervals (24 gates total); as the subject runs end to end they break these photo-beams and time is measured between each gate allowing for calculation of acceleration and velocity.

System comes complete with software, cables, and all hardware. Contact us for pricing or for additional information.
