General overview

WHY IS A RUNFISIX ANALYSIS THE BEST CURRENTLY AVAILABLE?

Our full onsite assessment is incredibly comprehensive and incorporates range of motion testing, muscle strength testing, functional movement testing, indoor run testing and outdoor run testing. Our methods are tuned to provide the ultimate testing approach for the specific demands of running. We use cutting edge proprietary technology much of which has been developed in partnership with tech manufacturers and is exclusive to Runfisix. And your session does not stop with your analysis, rather we use this as the basis for providing you with individually tailored strength training that helps you improve. Our ability to understand your data is built on the knowledge we have gained from performing more than 3000 onsite analyses and working with more than 100,000 global datasets. During your analysis you will directly benefit from our experience of working with runners all over the world including many of the world's fastest.

WHAT IS WEARABLE GAIT ANALYSIS?

Wearable gait analysis is the assessment of a runner's gait that incorporates the use of wearable measuring devices that are worn by the runner typically on their body or their shoes.

Onsite gait assessment

WHAT SHOULD I BRING FOR AN ONSITE GAIT ANALYSIS?

For all onsite assessments please bring comfortable running clothing and the running shoes you wear the most each week. You can also bring other shoes if you are interested in getting comparative shoe advice. Your running clothing will need to take account of the weather conditions as assessments will involve you running outside.

HOW LONG DO ASSESSMENTS TAKE?

The approximate onsite session durations are: Basic: 2 hours. Full: 2 hours plus an additional 1 hour session. Reports are generated immediately after the sessions and emailed to the runner within 48 hours of the session.

Remote gait assessment

CAN I RECEIVE A RUNNING GAIT ANALYSIS IF I CANNOT MAKE IT TO CENTRAL ALBERTA?

HOW DOES REMOTE GAIT ANALYSIS WORK?

If you do not live in the Central Alberta area then you can send data from your own devices to Runfisx. For example, from RunScribe footpods. This can be done very quickly and easily by secure electronic sharing. You can also send videos of your running to Runfisx (our staff will inform you about what video is required). On occasion we will also send devices out to you if required for you to collect your data and send back.

Strength training

DO I NEED ANY PARTICULAR EXPERIENCE BEFORE PROCEEDING WITH A COACHED STRENGTH TRAINING SESSION?

Generally, no. You will be taught strength exercises that fit your abilities at the time. Much of the strength training prescribed uses body weight and light resistance bands. However you should always consider your current state of health before booking a session and completing the necessary information forms.
