The endpointR is a computational tool for aiding scientists in laboratory animal research to identify humane endpoints. Originally it was developed for body weight (change) data but it can be used with any (longitudinal/time series) data. However, it is not meant as substitution for experience and reason - but it may help in any decision making process concerning the wellbeing of an animal.
You can install the development version from GitHub with:
The endpointR is ready-to-use as a Shiny app for body weight data analysis under the following link.

This is a basic example using the internal Glioma data from Helgers & Talbot et al 2019 (under review) to indicate potential endpoints for individual animals. The input variables are raw body weight data.
