Running is a very popular sport. However, the injury risk is very high (around 70% per year). Currently, the industry uses video analysis and instrumented treadmill to assess runners’ gait. Video analysis is subjective and a lot of intrinsic parameters such as force, energy and impact cannot be measured; instrumented treadmill is available to measure these parameters but at a very high cost. Therefore, we develop a smart running anklet wearable to provide a cheaper, easier and accurate solution for physiotherapy clinics, gyms, running coaches and runners.

Our product can measure around 10 biomechanical parameters and provide real-time scientific biofeedback to reduce injury risk, improve running efficiency and endurance through smart sensor and cutting edge AI technology. We empower distance runners to run faster, further and injury-free by providing customized suggestions and personalized training plan.

  • Measure around 10 running related biomechanical parameters such as force, energy loss
  • Analyze running injury risk and diagnose key issue in running form that leads to injury and poor performance
  • Provide clinically proven biofeedback targeted to the problematic area that can reduce injury risk by over 60%
Smart Running Anklet Wearable monitors running gait to help runners reduce injury risk and improve running efficiency
