Gait analysis assessment in Tonbridge

What is the best way to reduce running injuries? How can you help yourself run ‘better’?

One of the best ways to do this is by ensuring that you have the right running shoes. Whether you simply want to jog around the block or set a new personal record, our virtual gait analysis can help ensure you have the right running shoes for you. It can show you what you are doing wrong when you run, so we can suggest ways to help with the right equipment.

Book a virtual gait analysis

We offer a 20-minute virtual running assessment in which we advise you about the way you run and how the right shoes may help. Before your gait testing appointment, we will need various things including a short video of your running and we can give you clear instructions on exactly what we need. This is then merged with our advanced video gait analysis software to see more clearly the type of shoe you need.

It will show biomechanical patterns and uses angles and measurements to provide precise feedback. An overstanding of your level of pronation – the natural movement of the foot as it moves inwards – and your leg and body movement will allow us to isolate areas that may be affecting efficiency. Over-pronation happens when the foot rolls inwards too much and under-pronation, or supination, is where the foot doesn’t roll inwards enough. We can then suggest shoes to try or foot orthotics and support your feet.

Our local running experts can help ensure that you are 100 per cent wearing the right running shoes for you.

Video gait analysis for runners in and around Bidborough (TN10)

Every runner will feel the advantages of properly-fitted running trainers. In order to identify the best shoe for you, it is essential to analyse your running style. Running in the wrong shoes can bring discomfort and cause injury. There are many different types of running shoes including road shoes, off-road shoes and lightweight shoes.

At Running Hub, we offer video gait analysis and foot-arch identification before choosing a selection of shoes for our customers.

We have an in-store treadmill and high-speed video capture, which uses the latest Contemplas Templo gait analysis software to capture the way you run.

The video will capture where your foot strikes the ground (either at the heel or midfoot) and we also look for issues such as excessive inward rolling of the foot, known as pronation. We can then recommend the ‘type’ of shoe that will be best for your running style.

Customers can then choose the perfect shoe for them, based on colour, feel, fit and price.
