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.
