  • Led a research project on the adaptation and effectiveness of a thoracic vibration vest prototype for use in equines. The study involved evaluating the vest’s fit, animal acceptability, and physiological responses across ten healthy adult equines.
  • Designed the research protocol and supervised the implementation.
  • Conducted both non-vibrating (Phase A) and vibrating (Phase B) trials.
  • Monitored and recorded physiological parameters (HR and RR) and behavioral responses.
  • Collected and analyzed data, documenting findings related to vest acceptability and discomfort levels.
  • Demonstrated potential for using the vest in equine respiratory therapy.
  • Presented research findings at the university’s annual symposium.
  • Collaborated with the manufacturer to discuss possible design enhancements to improve the vest based on study results.
