It is not a secret - the most of us run with a bad technique and it hurts. Overuse injuries are a significant problem among runners - with half of all runners sustaining an injury annually. Running is a high impact sport and recreational runners should be keen on finding better running technique for their own benefit.
Our mission is to make skillful, healthy and fast runners. We are introducing a family of revolutionary running technique and skill monitors and services.
Good running skills and correct biomechanics are the best guarantee for the prevention of these injuries and they are in a more important role than running shoes. Correct running technique allows you also run faster (with better running economy), keep motivation high and enjoy running more.
RUNTEQ utilize the precision inertial sensors for detecting your movements. Tiny sensors are attached to the chest strap and on top of the running shoe. The smartphone collects the data for further analysis. After the exercise, you can check your results in your smartphone or on our Web service. The analysis lists your key running score and metrics and gives you personal instructions how to develop your running form and skills. The analysis can be shared with friends and a coach.
