Eight high-speed cameras record 360 degrees of your running form in real-time using deep learning and computer vision.
Quantify functional movements and strength of individual muscle groups important for running performance and injury prevention.
Your unique running technique is captured and the results are analyzed in an easy-to-understand report.
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 running form.
This is what you can expect in your 60 minute session:
Review of your health history and goals
Perform 3D motion capture testing on a treadmill
Perform personalized functional movement and muscle strength testing
Review the running analysis results and receive report to your email
We also recommend booking a follow-up 30 minute appointment with your physio or chiro to discuss the creation of a plan to tackle any issues that are identified in the initial running gait analysis session.
Your running gait analysis will include the following tests:
Cadence and Pace
Identify your preferred cadence (steps per minute). From this measurement and other, we can estimate your running pace (i.e. how long it takes to run a mile, 5K, half and full marathon)
We measure your average step length across the entire recording as well as your shin angle, which helps us identify if you're over-striding.
The distance between your knees during mid-stance and your hip adduction angles gives us an idea of your hip control.
Your step width for each foot helps identify if you have a cross-over gait which is linked to various running-related issues
Pelvic drop measures the drop angle of one side of the pelvis during mid-stance
We measure the hip extension angle at toe-off for each leg
Strength testing is customized to your body but may include recording your peak force output of major muscle groups such as the hips, knees and ankles.
Please bring the following to your session:
Clean, bright or light coloured running shoes
Tight-fitting, bright coloured clothing (shorts and tank top or t-shirt)
Hair elastic (if necessary)
Please avoid wearing black or similar coloured shorts and shirt as it may be difficult for the cameras to detect your movement accurately.
We recommend retesting periodically if you are training for a race, or retesting if anything has changed with how you run (new shoes, change in foot strike, etc).
Yes. Visits can be claimed under your Extended Health Benefits because a consult with your Chiropractor or Physiotherapist is included.
