What is the analysis of walking and running?
By measuring different parameters, the analysis of walking and running detects possible asymmetries of the legs, inefficiencies of movement and problem areas.
The data obtained allow the creation of a personalized intervention plan for each person, which may include physical therapy, need for heels, shoe insoles, etc. By repeating the test after a certain period, the effectiveness of the intervention can be evaluated.
For the analysis of walking and running at Superfit, we use Optogait, an innovative system that works on the basis of optical sensors. It detects time and space variables relevant to walking, running, jumping, stepping on the spot. The system can analyze all phases of movement, at any speed, barefoot or with various types of footwear.
