The No1 Running Analysis

Run Better

Run Smarter

WHY OUR RUNNING ANALYSIS?

We are here to help you run Better, Longer and Smarter.

Using the latest 3D running analysis system, your running technique will be broken down into key running metrics and referenced against Elite scores. Next, using a dual-force plate system we can measure your lower limb strength, both statically and dynamically. Finally, a detailed dynamic plantar pressure assessment will be used to assess your foot behaviour. All of the findings will enable us to create a detailed report along with advice on ways you can improve your running performance.

We offer the most comprehensive running analysis in the UK.

STEP 1

A 3D RUNNING ANALYSIS

Using markerless technology, a biomechanical running profile will be built over a range of speeds.

STEP 2

A FORCE PLATE ANALYSIS

Lower limb strength and power will be assessed both dynamically and statically.

STEP 3

A PRESSURE PLATE ANALYSIS

Your dynamic foot behaviour and function will be assessed.

STEP 4

REPORTS AND ADVICE

All findings will be placed in a digital report alongside advice on how you can improve your running.

OUR ANALYSIS TOOLS

MotionMetrix Running Analysis

MotionMetrix uses 3D Infra Red depth cameras to track your skeleton as you run, without the fuss of the ‘body markers’ found on older systems. It’s software then scores your technquie with over 64 metric all cross-referenced to elite runners*, highlighting areas of concern. This smart technology opens up a whole new world for the analyst.

Hawkin Dynamics Force Plates

Force plates are high performance scales that measure the forces you create (to 1/1000th of a second) while executing exercises. We use the industry leading Hawkin Dynamics Dual-Force Plate system, from these can understand how quickly and how much force you produce. Both dynamic and static assessments will be used to help us quantitatively evaluate whether your strength capabilities match your running ambition.

AmCube Plantar Pressure Plates

AMCube pressure plates are used to help us understand your foot function and behaviour. Capable of assessing both unilateral and bilateral balance, in addition to static and dynamic motions, the AMCube pressure plate gives us invaluable insight into your foots function.

Sprintex Gait Analysis Treadmill
Sprintex Gait Analysis Treadmills

When recording your assessment we use the Gold Standard Sprintex slat-based treadmills, to ensure that you natural movement patterns and ground reaction forces are minimally affected. Conventional treadmills use a revolving belt over a flexible board to reduce shock whilst pulling your feet beneath your hips. This is not how we move. Sprintex slat-belt system allows minimise the differences between the assessment and your everyday run, while maximising the effectiveness of our feedback.

OUR PACKAGES

We have a number of packages but our two intital assessments are either for running performance or for health& lifestyle running.

RUNNING PERFORMANCE ASSESSMENT

Our No 1 performance package.

We will breakdown your movement patterns into individual metrics, using a ‘state of the art’ 3D motion capture system that was designed around elite athletes. A dual force-plate system will measures your muscle power, the power that actually moves you. Finally a detailed dynamic foot-scanning assessment, this will highlight the dynamic function and efficiency of your foot. All this information will enable us to create a detailed report with training advice to help improve your running performance.

Your report will be sent to you digitally afterwards.

The Assessment includes:

A 3D Markerless Running Analysis
A Force Plate Analysis
A Plantar Pressure Analysis

Prices
Initial Assessment (1.5 hrs) – £149.00
Follow-up Session (1 hr) – £99.00

Follow-up Package (3 x 1 hour follow-up sessions) – £249.00

HEALTH & LIFESTYLE: RUNNING ASSESSMENT

Running isn’t always about the stop watch, winning or the next mile. Some actually run because it’s healthy, it improves fitness and enhances well-being. Of course some just run for fun.

 

But sometimes the fun grinds to a halt with a simple niggle. It’s often not the first time you may have had that niggle. But it’s often silent damage rearing its ugly head. Most soft tissue injuries can be traced back to poor form, such as overstriding, low cadence, too much forward lean, too much knee flexion, so on and so forth.

 

At the Ministry of Cadence you will be monitored by a marker-less 3D analysis system, highlighting areas of concern. Force Plates will enable us to understand if you produce enough power to perform as you’d like. And finally, we will use a pressure mat to assess how your foot behaves.

 

This assessment will detail if there are any running technique-related factors, or strength asymmetries that may be contributing to your injury risk.

 

A digital copy of your report detailing the findings of the assessment and possible ways to alter your technique to reduce your injury risk will be sent to you following the session.

 

So whatever you do, don’t let that niggle become a real pain.  Book an appointment today.
