Running gait assessment in East Grinstead

The Covid-19 crisis has been a cue for many people to pull on their trainers and get outside to go running. But how can you make the most out of your runs and not get injured? How can you push yourself further? Video gait analysis can provide a valuable insight into your running style. If you are a runner in East Grinstead looking for virtual gait analysis, our expert team can help.

Book a virtual gait analysis

As well as in-store gait checks, we run virtual gait analysis so you can enjoy all the benefits of gait analysis from the comfort of your own home. This gait testing involves sending us various details including a video of you running. This is overlaid on our advanced software so we can analyse how your body moves. Your running gait comprises of five movements from when your foot strikes the ground to when it leaves the floor. One of the key elements in the pronation – the natural rolling of the foot. If you have over pronation (when the foot rolls too far inwards) or under-pronation (an excessive outward roll), this is when injuries can occur.

Our running assessment allows us to look at your running style in closer detail, so we can make recommendations about the right types of running trainers and any foot orthotics like custom insoles that may help you run more efficiently. This gait check service is completely free – we just ask that you buy your trainers from our running shop. We stock a huge range of trainers from leading and small-name manufacturers that deliver on performance and style.

Why RH19 gait analysis can help you choose the right running trainers

With every step your run, your body force is equal to two and a half times your body weight. Each mile is equivalent to around 1900 steps, so if you run around 40 miles a week, that over two million steps per month!

Gait analysis can be hugely beneficial, especially if you wish to improve your performance or get over an existing injury. This is definitely not just something for advanced runners; we believe that everyone will benefit from getting their gait analysed, so they can choose the correct trainers for the way they move. We use advanced Contemplas Templo gait analysis software near East Grinstead, which allows us to video customers running on our in-store treadmill before slowing the video down and looking more closely at the movement of feet, ankles, legs and the body. It will uncover exactly how your body moves and look at flexibility, stability, mobility, and strength.

There are different foot strides, where the feet and ankles remain in a neutral position. Pronation is where the feet deviate to the inside side of the foot, whilst over overpronation (or supination) is where the feet deviate towards the outside side of the foot.

Our team can make the best recommendations about the right shoes to neutralise your movement, so you can run more efficiently.
