We know you love running, but do you know how do you run?
Designed by sport scientists & coaches of elite runners, Runmatic is the first scientifically designed app that analyzes your running technique to help you to improve your performance and prevent injuries.
Runmatic takes advance of the slowmotion recording capabilities of the latest iOS devices to accurately analyze your steps while running. Using scientifically validation equations, Runmatic calculates the contact-flight times, force, efficiency, frequency and even the asymmetry of your legs in a simple, accurate way. Moreover, Runmatic analyze your stride informing about relevant variables such as pronation or strike pattern, which could help you prevent injuries.
How does it work? You just need to record 9 steps of your run with Runmatic and select the contact and take-off of each step. Runmatic will magically provide you with valuable information about your running biomechanics and will even notify you if something seems wrong.
****Pr. Jean-Benoit Morin, PhD, Expert in running biomechanics: "This is a very useful app to evaluate and monitor the mechanics of the runners' strides. It's accurate, it's scientifically validated and it uses equations derived from our research (Morin et al., 2005). The tools often used to perform this kind of analyses are much more expensive and generally less practical for the general population. Runmatic solves this problem and allows runners to analyze and monitor their running mechanics in an easy way"
****Arturo Casado, Olympic runner, 2010 European 1500m Champion: "Runmatic is very helpful for my training. It let me better understand how do I run, which is critical to improve my running economy and, therefore, my performance. Is like a lab in my pocket!"
Runmatic has a lot of great features that will help you monitor your running performance in a very simple, yet powerful way:
-Calculate contact time, flight time, frequency, max force, displacement of the center of mass and leg stiffness with scientific accuracy
-Analyze your stride to calculate your pelvic drop, pronation and strike patter, which could help you prevent injuries.
-Multi-user: create as many users as you want
-Progress analysis: save as many runs as you want and see your progress through time to check if you have improved or worsened your performance. You can even see the percent of change from one test to another!
-Data export: export your whole database to a csv file and play with your data in Excel!
-Universal app: install Runmatic in your iPhone and use it in your iPad or viceversa!
Runmatic, analyze your running mechanics and improve your performance!
Note: Runmatic is optimized for devices with slowmotion cameras. In other devices, the accuracy of the calculations might be lower
NEW FEATURE: Pelvic drop! Research has shown that contralateral pelvic drop is highly associated with most common running injuries, and now you can measure it in Runmatic using the technique test!
Also, we have updated our icon to give Runmatic a fresh look :)
