Strideuk goes 3d

As much as running shoes are important...we show you how to run better!

If you believe you've had your running technique analysed before other than at StrideUK, think again. Unlike 99% of all other running stores in the uk offering video gait analysis service,  StrideUK stand proud to be one of the very few video gait analysis companies that analyse the whole body instead of just your feet.

Since launch in August 2008, StrideUKs clientele has grown so quickly due to being one of the very few Video Gait Analysis companies that pay strict attention as to how the entire body performs during the process of running. Without promoting one particular running style for all, StrideUK fine tune each and every ones running technique... individually.
 


StrideUK boots up to 3d analysis

The next generation

Proud to being one of very first in the UK to invest in this latest 3 dimensional software from Motion Matrix, we believe that this is the worlds most complete motion capturing software for runners. With it's ability to create a fully 3D segmentation model of the runner, this highly intuitive system can measure running economy (stride performance), gait symmetry and joint loading. Unless you are a Jedi Knight, it has been impossible to measure all the forces at the same time! No more body marking, no more running in minimal clothing, less interpretations based on what the analyst is seeing, more factual evidence as to how efficient you are as a runner and whether you exhibit any risks of getting injured.
Prices from £129 for a full body analysis with interest free payment plans available, definately do consider visiting us if you would like to investigate your running performance. 


We've gone Green!!

Our new lab!

So we've just upgraded from our orginal 2D lab to our squeeky clean 3D lab, you may notice a few changes! Firstly, less space age and more green and minimalistic! Secondly, we've ditched the calibration boards for a stunning running path towards the main Caucasian ridge of Shkhara Mountain ( original methods of visually measuring levers required our calibration boards but our new system takes care of everything! )  We've also ditched 90% of all our over head lighting as we no longer require to light you up as if you're in a sun booth! The only thing that stayed put was our ortho gait treadmill, built to deliver as close to 95% to outdoor running. Those cameras (at either side of the mural) are depth sensing cameras which measure distance to the object and construct a 3D model (see image above). Using infrared light, it tracks bony prominences without the need to manually body mark you. This also means you can wear what you like when you visit!


Validation

Validated!

When introducing any new technology, it is essential to demonstrate that it fulfils its intended purpose. Best practice is to do this by third party validation. Our new 'MotionMetrix' system has had it's parameters successfully validated by different independent institutes using standardized reference equipment:

  • Position, angles and stride parameters against Qualisys Oqus 4 marker-based motion capture system
  • Forces and temporal parameters against Kistler Gaitway system
  • Running economy against VO2 using Oxycon Pro
