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.
