Biomechanical running analysis:

  • Allows to assess running efficiency through all its' phases, based on musculoskeletal system movement pattern video recording analysis.
  • This analysis allows to detect repeated impact force absorption mechanisms, as well as stability of lower extremities, feet in particular.
  • In case of deviation recommendations on improving running technique can be developed with the aim to protect the body against trauma caused by instability of a foot, by means of assistive technologies, involving footwear modification or specific physiotherapy.

 

Description of the process

  • A 10 minute run over a treadmill (dressed in sports shorts, 5 minute run in foot-wear, 5 minute run barefooted). Two plane video recording is made (from the side and back). This analysis can be combined with exercise testing; in this case running is recorded only at the beginning of testing and in foot-wear only.
  • Video recording is analyzed remotely, by means of specific software.
  • A client receives a report electronically within 3 working days (report content: description of run specificity, abnormalities, and recommendations).

On the one hand, running is the simplest and nowadays common way to keep one fit, on the other hand it is way of movement, involved in many sports. Running techniques are variable, but regardless of the type of run, the consumption of body energy has to be effective, not consuming energy for compensatory mechanisms caused by any functional limitations.
