Foot mapping & gait analysis. How it can improve you running efficiency?
Gait analysis provides runners with essential information about their running style. This information is always important, as no matter how long you have been running, knowing your running style plays a crucial part in selecting the right shoes.
The major focus of gait analysis is to measure the degree of pronation. Pronation is the term used to describe the way your foot rolls when you walk and run. This roll acts as a natural shock absorber for the leg and body, optimally distributing the force of the impact of the heel hitting the ground.
- Overpronation occurs when the feet roll inward too much
- Underpronation (supination) occurs when the feet don’t roll inward enough
Gait analysis matches the runner’s degree of pronation with the correct shoe type. The aim is to counterbalance the overpronation or underpronation to help to reduce the risk of injury and improve running efficiency.
What is video gait analysis?
Video gait analysis involves running for a few minutes on a treadmill while a recording is made of your feet. This footage is then slowed down and analysed in detail by an ASICS professional, who will explain their findings in simple terms. Runner can then choose from the three ASICS shoe types – selecting cushioning, structured cushioning and maximum support based on the results.
As well as helping runners to find the right shoe by assessing the movement of the foot, video gait analysis also looks at leg and body movement to see if the runner’s efficiency can be improved. By slowing the video down and viewing the different running stages in detail, ASICS representatives can help identify certain movements which may be triggering injuries or reducing efficiency.
