Running Analysis in Private Practice
19th February 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Running is such a popular activity that there are many solutions being offered to help with performance and injuries. These range from inexpensive video analysis tools using a smart phone or tablet through to full laboratory testing in a university setting. The question is, which of these is best for the person and what benefit do they get from such assessments? Our aim in partnering with Noraxon is to give high quality data that is quick and easy to obtain, and gives clear actions to benefit the client. This event will demonstrate how the technology works and what data can be obtained from a 5 minute assessment.
Why Noraxon Running Analysis?
Using NORAXON’s high resolution pressure data of an instrumented treadmill in combination with high speed video analysis and electromyography allows us to analyse muscle activity leads to a deep insight into the movement. On the other side we need to learn, what the technology is actually measuring and how it can help us in biofeedback situations on a day-to-day basis. This task of not only measuring, but using the data is key to practitioners of any background, and will therefore been addressed in a understandable way taught by experts working daily with the system.
Going through all the steps, from measuring, to understanding the reports, to biofeedback training, and re-assessment in short period of time will give you a feeling for how objective data can improve your daily clinical reasoning.
This practical based 2-hours course will include:
- Data driven clinical reasoning: what it is and why to consider it
- Quick intro into technology background: video – pressure distribution – electromyography
