3D Gait Analysis

Run Lab Clinics is one of  the  South West's leading running injuries clinic providing real time 3D gait analysis. Using 3D gait analysis we are able to provide the most accurate assessment of an individuals running gait using a scientific approach to capture reliable and measurable information. 

3D Gait Analysis for Injury

Due to the repetitive nature of running, resulting from excessive accumulation of ground reaction forces with every step, the risk of a running related injury is high. 3D gait analysis can be used to help identify risk factors more accurately with regards to running related injury. 

3D Gait Analysis for Performance

Running performance & speed is a result of numerous factors working together. Our 3D running analysis  can help identify weaknesses & asymmetries that influencing your running technique. Optimising your running technique could help you to run faster, more economical, less fatigued, with reduced injury risk & improved performance.

Run 3D Technology

Using infrared cameras to track positions of small reflective markers, we are able to precisely calculate joint angles to provide unparalleled insight into an individual’s running gait. 

Following a 3D Gait Analysis we are able to provide in-depth analysis with regards to 

  • Injury risk factors 
  • Running technique
  • Muscular weakness/stiffness & asymmetries 
  • Foot orthoses
  • Running footwear
