Plantar Pressure Mapping in Endurance-Based Sports:

How to Test Running Biomechanics with XSENSOR’s Intelligent Insoles

In XSENSOR Technology’s first webinar of the all-new ‘Running Mechanics’ series, we explore how to use plantar pressure mapping to measure and test running biomechanics in distance runners.

Endurance-based sports, like long-distance running, are characterized by a biomechanical continuum between force application and movement efficiency. To achieve the best results, runners need to focus on movement efficiency and develop the ability to switch to sprinting mechanics in the final distance of a race.

The use of plantar pressure mapping provides a unique opportunity to tap into the mechanics of foot impact. Plantar pressure data captured, using systems like XSENSOR’s Intelligent Insoles, can provide unparalleled insight on the efficiency of movement over time and the ability to change running mechanics depending on the stage and goal of a race.
