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

We observe 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. We will work with you to reduce injury risk.

stride rating data analysis

Stride Rating

The stride rating highlights stride parameters that are possible weak areas.
 
These can be improved with simple changes to technique, footwear choice, custom 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.

Motion Analysis Results

Based on your 3D Assessment, our skilled technicians analyse the results and provide advice and guidance including footwear selection, custom moulded insoles and running technique. They will provide exercise programmes both during this appointment – and with follow up assessments if needed.

The beauty of the 3D System is that with short and regular follow up appointment(s) we can look at improvements made, or new issues arising, and continue to fine-tune your key parameters to enhance and progress your running technique. So you can perform to your optimum potential.

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

3D Motion Lab appointment notes:

1 Appointment time length can vary slightly depending on individual requirements. If you arrive late we may need to alter the assessment to suit the available time or to rebook an alternative date and time.

2 Additional insoles can be purchased during your appointment at a 10% discount. It may not be possible to finish more than one pair during an appointment. Custom insoles are covered by our comprehensive Profeet Fit Guarantee.

3 Running shoes or other footwear are charged separately and not included in the appointment cost.

4 You must be able to run at 9km/h (5.6mph), (6:40min/km), (10:44 min/mile) on a treadmill for at least a minute. You will need to run in close fitted clothing for accurate movement detection.
