Frequently Asked Questions
Your Running Analysis visit includes a full body biomechanical movement assessment on a treadmill in our 3D markerless motion capture system. This system identifies your unique movement patterns as you run, showing you potential movement issues and highlighting areas throughout your body that can be improved.
After the treadmill running gait analysis, we test the strength of important muscle groups needed during running.
All of these insights are combined into an easy to understand report as well as personalized recommendations that you can work on to improve your running technique.
Our camera system uses computer vision and machine learning to accurately map a skeleton onto your body. The precision of this body mapping process is around 99%, translating to a variance of <1mm between sessions. It takes <3 seconds to complete this process. The software can then record joint angles, joint velocity, center of gravity and more. A five second recording can generate 30,000+ data points about your movement.

- Pelvic Drop
- Hip Adduction
- Trunk Lean

Please bring the following to your session:
- Clean, bright coloured or light running shoes
- Tight-fitting, bright coloured clothing (shorts and tank top or t-shirt)

Please avoid wearing black, white or green coloured clothing as it may blend with the background and affect the movement tracking.
Our Running Analysis report gives you the insights about your movement. These insights may include modifications to your running gait or changes to your exercise program to help improve performance or reduce risk of injury.
If your report does not identify any movement inefficiencies, you can use your data to track changes over time or to support a plan towards achieving your movement health goals.
If there are any concerns that are identified on this report, we recommend consulting with your trainer, coach or healthcare professional.
