The Data-Driven Athlete

runScribe™ provides 3D insight into the mechanics of how you run. Let the data drive you toward smarter training decisions.

The Most Advanced Running Wearable

Captures 13 Kinematic Metrics

Small & lightweight, runScribe fits on the back of your shoe

While other running technologies offer limited information—merely tracking steps, distance, and speed—runScribe provides an unprecedented 3D view of how an athlete really runs.

Gives athletes, trainers and coaches real-world data to make better training decisions.
Advances sports science through the creation of the world’s first crowdsourced kinematic running database.

Why runScribe?

  • Technology, pioneered. runScribe is the first running wearable bringing this level of detailed kinematic data to consumers.
  • Complexity, captured. The complex motion of the foot can finally be captured and analyzed.
  • Simplicity, preserved. runScribe is lightweight and easily mounts on the back of your shoe.
  • Powerful data, visualized. The data that runScribe provides about how you run informs better training decisions—simple decisions that can have a big impact.
  • Knowledge, shared. We're creating the largest resource of real-world kinematic data to shed light on running's biggest problems and share what we learn with the running community.

CASUAL RUNNER USING RUNSCRIBE
  • Use runScore to quickly assess the intensity of your run; compare with your run history.
  • Accurately understand pace and distance without GPS.
  • Evaluate Impact Gs in different shoes and terrains: identify factors that impact your runScore and use them to help with shoe selection.
DISTANCE RUNNER (5K, 10K, MARATHON) USING RUNSCRIBE PRO
  • Understand the impact of fatigue or distance on your kinematics; use that information to adjust your training.
  • Identify your Footstrike Type and see how it changes at race speeds vs training pace. Is that a limiting factor in a race? Adjust your training to account for your racing styles.
  • Evaluate Impact Gs, Braking Gs, and Pronation characteristics in different shoes and terrains to determine which shoes best suit different scenarios.
ULTRA RUNNER USING RUNSCRIBE PRO
  • Understand the trade-offs between shoes for different terrain; how they affect your running kinematics could be crucial to gaining a competitive edge.
  • Use your runScore to evaluate and compare your Impact Gs and Braking Gs; using kinematic data to understand the implications of downhill speeds can help you stay out of the "red zone" during a race.
  • Gait retraining? Use runScribe as a tool to evaluate if it's working and if changes are maintained.
TRACK & FIELD: HURDLER USING RUNSCRIBE PRO
  • Use runScribe metrics to analyze flight time over the hurdle and determine if it changes throughout the duration of a race.
  • Use Contact Time, Stride Rate, Impact Gs, and Braking Gs to better understand the detailed kinematics of the steps between hurdles.
TRACK & FIELD: SPRINTER USING RUNSCRIBE PRO
  • Visualize your start from takeoff through the drive and transition to max velocity and finally to speed maintenance.
  • Track kinematic metrics like Contact Time, Swing Excursion, and Acceleration Profile to better understand the differences in each phase of the sprint.
  • 200/400/800 meters? What metrics change in the turns?
TRACK & FIELD: JUMPING USING RUNSCRIBE PRO
  • Use Contact Time, Impact Gs, and Braking Gs to better understand your approach in the last two steps before takeoff.
  • Use these same metrics to individually analyze the penultimate and takeoff steps. What are the characteristics of a successful jump relative to a mediocre jump?
CROWDSOURCED DATA BANK
The goal of the runScribe crowdsourced data bank is to gather real-world information so we can investigate some of the questions that plague sports scientists, like:
  • Does everyone have a natural Footstrike Type? Does it change with speed or terrain?
  • Is one category of shoe better than another based on certain kinematics? How does shoe wear impact kinematics?
  • Is excessive pronation a good predictor of injury or are there other kinematic metrics that are more important to focus on? Does gait retraining work, and can it be maintained?
