Biomechanical analysis of the running motion
The Author: Veselības centrs 4
The biomechanical analysis of the running motion allows to determine the efficiency of running at all phases thereof, based on the analysis of the video recording of the musculo-skeletal system motion pattern. The performance of this analysis allows determining the absorption mechanisms of repeated impact force, as well as the stability of the lower extremities, especially feet.
In the event of deviations, the recommendations on the improvement of the running technique can be developed with the purpose of protecting the body from traumas that can be caused by running due to feet instability, by using auxiliary technologies that involve footwear modification or specific physiotherapy.
The biomechanical analysis of the running motion is performed starting from the age, when a child is capable of using the running track.
