Runners that would like to know more about the way they run to help prevent injuries and refine their running style, might be interested in a new wearable device called runScribe.
runScribe has been specifically designed to provide a 3D view of how you run and is planning to use crowd sourced data to help prevent future injuries for runners. To find out more about this innovative new running aid created by Scribe Labs based in San Francisco, watch the promotional video after the jump.
runScribe is a lightweight running wearable that fixes to the rear of your shoe and is equipped with 9-axis sensor to precisely capture the movements of your foot during the gait cycle. Its creators explain a little more.
“The precision measurements, combined with runScribe’s kinematic engine delivers the most advanced set of running metrics available outside of a professional lab environment.
While other running technologies offer limited information – merely tracking steps, distance and speed – runScribe makes thousands of calculations for every stride and reports on 13 detailed kinematic metrics.
The scale and detail of data available through runScribe has never been captured in a consumer device, giving athletes, trainers and coaches real-world data to make informed training decisions.”
The runScribe run tracker project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $50,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production.
So if you think runScribe is something your running style could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help runScribe become a reality.
