Optimizing Running Technique Using Plantar Pressure Mapping & IMU Sensors

In XSENSOR Technology’s webinar, presenter Antonio Robustelli (Sports Performance Scientist & Technologist with OmniAthlete Performance Concept) explores how to optimize running technique using plantar pressure mapping technology and inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors.

Running technique is often an overlooked aspect when it comes to performance optimization and training. Both endurance running and sprinting relies on optimal technique and biomechanical efficiency in order to successfully compete and reduce any potential risk of injury.

The dynamics of the foot strike, spatio-temporal parameters, mobility, and type of shoes are all factors that contribute to the running technique of an individual. When pairing plantar pressure mapping technology with IMU sensors, it is now easier for coaches to evaluate running technique and design targeted interventions.
