Purpose and goals

Runners Point Project customers

Basic considerations

  • Basic idea: Running shoe advice in a familiar situation on the ground
  • Revolution of the running shoe advice
  • Decoupling of capturing, analysis and advice
  • Cross-linkage of the capture- analysis- and advice-terminals
  • Availability of the data in a global database
  • High flow-rate (300-400 people/day) and time saving
  • Extension through a running laboratory with lactate diagnostics and professional running style advice by a sports scientist or physiotherapist

Planning of the workflow

Project Runners Point World of Running

The following workflow has been developed in collaboration with CONTEMPLAS

  • The customer is being registered in the global database
  • Recording barefoot running on lane 1 -> automatic assignment of the video file to the customer
  • Customer meets consultant at a terminal and is being analyzed -> shoe advice based on the results of the analysis due to analysis results
  • Recording on lane 2 or 3 with recommended shoes
  • Comparison of the all recordings and consulting at one of the 7 terminals
  • Workflow can be organized variably
  • Terminals can be changed during the analysis

Technical realization

Projekt Runners Point World of Running

Through extensive consultation by CONETMPLAS the following concept has been chosen:

  • Shoe advice on 3 running lanes (15 m)
  • Recording with 2 cameras each from dorsal and ventral
