Key Parameters And How They Help

Where before, you needed to be an elite athlete and visit a fully equipped biomechanics lab and spend a day to get the same results. With our Profeet 3D Motion Lab you get an accurate and very beneficial result in just one hour.

Running Economy Data Analysis

Running Economy

We look at the economy of your movement, and how efficient your running technique is to resist fatigue. The less energy you expend whilst running, the greater the distance you can achieve or the faster pace you can run before fatigue sets in.

Joint Loading data analysis

Joint Loading

The combination of internal and external forces acting around the knee and the hip. Higher joint loading may be desirable for performance, however excessive forces can lead to short- and long-term injury so we will work with you to reduce injury risk.

stride rating data analysis

Stride Rating

The stride rating helps to highlight stride parameters that are possible weak areas. These can be improved with simple changes to technique, footwear/insoles and strength and conditioning exercises.

gait cycle data analysis

Gait Cycle

The gait wheel helps us analyse symmetry in gait and can be viewed in both frontal and sagittal planes. It is a key tool for helping identify movement patterns that lead to or is affected by injury and enables us to work on optimising movement.

 

These are examples of just a few key parameters, and we may also go into more or less detail depending on appointment type and needs.

Based on the initial assessment we will advise and work on footwear, insoles, technique and exercise programs both during your appointment, and if needed with follow up assessments. The beauty is that with a short regular follow up appointment we can look at improvements or new issues and continue to fine tune the key parameters.

How Does It Work?

  • High-tech depth cameras* collect running motion data which is interpreted by the software using highly advanced algorithms.
  • The software uses the data to extrapolate body segments from the raw data and build a 3D segmented model of the runner.
  • The software then performs rigorous kinematic and kinetic calculations to extract the angles, forces and timing in order to provide us with key running parameters.

* Why depth cameras? Because quality 3D motion data can be obtained without body markers, making motion capture easier and faster than ever

APPOINTMENT OPTIONS
