Do you want to run faster? Our gait analysis uses our high speed (100 frames per second) low distortion camera to video your running from the side, front and back and sensors to measure some key elements of your running.
We use Dartfish software to analyse your running by measuring various joint angles during the stance and swing phase of running. With all this information we can identify the key areas which are holding you back and propose a series of drills and exercises to improve your running speed and economy. Some of the key areas we are looking at are
Ground contact time
Ground contact point
There is no “one size fits all” answer to running form, we have all seen champion runners who run with what looks like questionable form, but most runners will get faster by increasing their cadence. It is not a case of just turning your legs over faster, we need to reduce your ground contact time and improve your posture to make you as efficient and fast as possible.
If we combine gait analysis with VO2Max testing then we can monitor your oxygen consumption and therefore economy at each speed and we can see how your economy improves with time allowing you to run faster or for longer.
