Running impacts your muscles, joints, and ligaments. The impact when the foot hits the ground is repetitive and ruthless. Standard metrics like heart rate, distance, speed and time cannot capture these impacts.
Runeasi introduces a novel way for physiotherapists to look at running: First, measure the impact on the runner’s body – and detect how the body responds to that impact. Second, perform biomechanical assessments on your athletes and patients in real-time or remotely. Third, guide them based on scientifically validated insights and A.I. powered decisions.
Runeasi is born as a university spin-off of KU Leuven, Belgium, and is based on eight years of rigorous and collaborative research between the Human Movement and Artificial Intelligence Research Groups of KU Leuven.
Runeasi’s main research objective has been to determine how wearable sensors and artificial intelligence can provide personalized biomechanical insights to runners – without the need for an expensive, indoor-only 3D motion lab. Runeasi was co-founded to bridge the gap between science and real-world applications. The company’s EASI philosophy is built upon four pillars: Evidence-based ; Actionable-metrics; Seamlessly Integrated; and Individually Adapted.
The Runeasi team has used and validated a vast array of miniature sensors and/or inertial measurement units – both inside and outside the lab. Movesense came up top, performance and functionality wise. Runeasi chose Movesense as a preferred sensor platform for its lab-grade internal specifications on the one hand, and it’s robust exterior, perfect for highly dynamic running conditions in the real-world. Runeasi optimizes it’s biomechanics and A.I algorithms to Movesense to bring a revolutionary solution to the market.
