NEW TECH PROMISES TO GIVE COMPLETE STRIDE ANALYSIS

New wearable technology launched this week could give useful information to experts such as physios about your running stride and help reduce the risk of injury.

STRIDESENSE from Attis Fitness consists of five motion-tracking sensors, which are placed around your legs and waist. With the aid of Bluetooth, you, your coach or physio can then analyse the data from 10 specialised running metrics.

Movements are displayed in a 3D visualiser, offering information previously only available in a lab.

Founder and CEO of Attis Fitness, sports engineer Tim Elizondo from Glasgow, said: “After four years of developing and perfecting STRIDESENSE in our labs, we’re excited to finally share the finished product with the world.

“We believe STRIDESENSE is the future of running technology. Having used other fitness trackers, I felt what was on the market just wasn’t helping me improve my running. The data provided post-run was simply telling me little about my performance and more to the point, by measuring metric data from my wrist or feet, they weren’t capable of giving me the whole picture of my runs.

“I struggled with recurring injuries and became frustrated at not understanding what was causing them, or even how to correct it without professional analysis and insight. I realised a tracker could do this, saving runners’ time and money.

“As a sports engineer, I’ve been lucky enough to work with the latest sports lab technology and was amazed at how beneficial it is for performance and injury prevention. I wanted to make this technology readily available and accessible to all – not just professionals. “
