Digital Gait Analysis backed by years’ of experience and industry-leading expertise

Ever analysed how you run? At The Running Company, we use digital gait analysis to ensure you leave with the correct shoe. We  monitor how your foot, ankle and lower limb function as part of our five-step fitting system.

1

We listen. To ensure you leave The Running Company with the right pair of runners. Tell us your running history, your goals and objectives, bring in your old shoes and let us know of any past or present injuries.

2

We observe. Our experienced staff will supervise you barefoot on the treadmill to perform the digital gait analysis. This enables us to clearly see your foot, ankle and lower limb motion and demonstrates the level of support and function you require from a running shoe. From this, we can help you find the right shoe for your particular style of running.

3

We measure. Using a Brannock device, our sports medically trained staff will measure both feet in length and width and take into account your previous experiences to provide you with a short list of styles which are suitable for you.

4

We simulate. It’s back on the treadmill to see the effect of the shoe on the foot.

5

We advise. Based on analysing the results and asking for your feedback on comfort, fit and function. This entire process will ensure you get the right shoe, help you run better, stave off injury and achieve your goals.
