Most of the injury causes induce several biomechanical parameters to reach their limit values. By measuring those biomechanical parameters and giving a feedback to the runner (during running) in order to correct them when necessary, running injuries could be avoided. Moreover, such running injuries could be prevented suggesting personalized training programmes for the runner developed by experts in the field, and offering personalized recommendation based on runner pattern.
The development of RUNSAFER system will therefore help runners get injured less often, helping them:
To be more healthy,
Improving musculoskeletal health,
Controlling body weight and
Reducing high blood pressure, cholesterol, obesity, and stress.
...Make running safer and more attractive.
