RUNSAFER is Ready!
RUNSAFER is Ready!

After two years of project, the RUNSAFER consortium has ready the development of a prototype of a measuring system integrated in the midsole of KELME running shoes. The system is capable to measure the main biomechanical parameters to characterize the runner profile. The data are wireless transmitted to the runner’s mobile phone where the RUNSAFER app analyzes them in real time to detect a possible risk of injury. The RUNSAFER system is completed by a website, which provides training plan personalization according to the profile and level of runners.

Validation of RUNSAFER system in a popular race
Validation of RUNSAFER system in a popular race

RUNSAFER system has been tested in real conditions by an experienced runner in the competition IV Volta a Peu a les Fallas of Valencia (Spain) on Sunday October 5. The popular race has crossed the main streets of the city centre with a total length of 6.152 meters. This test has allowed recording the main biomechanical parameters of the runner through RUNSAFER system. Furthermore, the comfort of the running shoes has been successfully tested by the runner. The analysis of the data gathered will be used for the final validation of the system and make the necessary adjustments of RUNSAFER system.

First Validation
First Validation

Once established the first version of the specifications in Work Package 1, the RUNSAFER consortium has carried out a set of tests with runners with the aim of validating the system and making the necessary adjustments. More than 25 runners of different runners’ associations have participated in the tests in an athletic track, under controlled conditions. With an initial version of RUNSAFER system, the biomechanical variables of the runner have been monitored while running to be later analyzed.

RUNSAFER Fourth Progress Meeting in Dresden
RUNSAFER Fourth Progress Meeting in Dresden

On 26 February 2014, the RUNSAFER partners met for the 4th periodic progress meeting hosted by Fraunhofer IPMS partner in Dresden. Over one day the partners took stock of the achievements to date and exchanged about the work to be delivered in the coming period of the project. At this stage of the project, IPMS has designed and manufactured a version of the measuring system capable to measure and record the row data of the biomechanical parameters of runners. This version of the measuring system will be soon used by IBV to carry out biomechanical test with runners in real workouts with the aim of...

Development of recommendations for runners to be later included in the web portal
Development of recommendations for runners to be later included in the web portal

 At this current time, IBV is working to provide complementary materials for runners. These materials will be later included in the web portal of the RUNSAFER system. Some of these contents will be: Recommendations to warm-up and cool down. Recommendations to improve the running technique. Guidelines for nutrition. Injury prevention on healthy runners through recommendation exercises. The contents are being carried out by Doctors, Physiotherapists and Graduates in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences. Furthermore, to facilitate their understanding, the contents will be supported by pictures and videos.
