A new running shoe aimed to prevent lesions and improve training management

A new running shoe aimed to prevent lesions and improve training management | Exercise for health | Scoop.it

From the 80 million European runners, more than 37 million have suffered a running injury during sport practice in the last year. The Institute of Biomechanics of Valencia (IBV) is working on the design of a new running shoe that integrates a measuring device that will provide training control and prevent injuries during running.

The device will consist of a microelectronic measurement system, capable of gathering and transmitting the athlete’s main biomechanical parameters. The information will be wirelessly transmitted to the runner’s mobile phone, where an application will inform him or her in real time about the planned activity and the performance achieved until that moment.

The mobile phone application can also integrate additional worthy information provided by other commercial devices currently used by runners such as heart rate monitors or GPS positioning provided by smartphones.

Får man god kondisjon om man følger dagens råd for fysisk aktivitet? | Exercise for health | Scoop.it
Conditioning as measured by maximum oxygen uptake appears to be the single greatest predictor of current and future health. Studies have shown that having a good endurance figure largely outweigh the risks associated with obesity, hypertension, and several other established risk factors for lifestyle-related diseases . The reason is probably that every cell in the body needs oxygen to live and perform.

 

Kondisjon målt som maksimalt oksygenopptak ser ut til å være den enkeltfaktor som sier mest om nåværende og fremtidig helse. Studier har vist at å ha et godt kondisjonstall i stor grad oppveier ris...
