Using the power of data for informed decision making

Run3D for Prevention

Running injuries are influenced by a combination of intrinsic (e.g. biomechanics, muscle imbalances, flexibility) and extrinsic (e.g. training load, footwear, running surface) risk-factors, which makes running injury prevention a complex endeavour.

Run3D is a game-changer in this regard. By comprehensively measuring a wide-range of key running injury risk factors, we can accurately identify any problem areas and proactively address them before an injury arises. We analyse your running mechanics, gait patterns, and musculoskeletal function, providing our clinicians with valuable insights into factors such as excessive loading, asymmetries, imbalances, and high-risk movement patterns.

Armed with this wealth of information, we can design targeted interventions and corrective strategies to mitigate these risks, helping you to prevent injuries before they occur, promote long-term running health and enhance your overall well-being.

How we can help make you a better runner

Objective Measures

Using advanced 3D motion capture cameras, we precisely assess known injury risk-factors and compare your results to a database of uninjured controls. This enables us to correctly identify asymmetries, imbalances and high-risk movement patterns.

With this information, we create data-driven interventions to effectively lower your risk of developing a running injury.

Strength Testing

Our musculoskeletal assessment measures a wide range of risk-factors such as muscle strength, range of motion, stability and function. By comparing your results to our uninjured controls, we gain valuable insights into areas requiring improvement.

This information is incorporated into your personalised plan to  target those specific needs and reduce your risk of injuries.

Gait Retraining

Gait re-education is a key tool for minimising the risk of running injuries and enhancing running efficiency.

Using real-time gait analysis, we can closely monitor the impact of the retraining process and evaluate the effectiveness of our recommendations.

Quantify Intervention

We have the tools to accurately measure the impact of our interventions. Whether it's providing specific gait re-education cues, implementing a strengthening program, or offering footwear advice, we have the means to precisely assess whether our recommendations are having the outcomes we desire.

Running injuries are complicated. At Run3D we tackle them with the scientific rigor necessary for achieving success

Run3D Assessment Pathway

Reason for Visit

Your clinician will take a history to understand any current and previous injuries, and your running goals.

Next, your clinician will attach 39 reflective markers to  your legs and shoes, positioned on specific anatomical landmarks.

Run3D uses exactly the same technology as specialist orthopaedic hospitals and elite sports performance centres.

The 3D motion capture cameras measure the positions of the reflective markers 200 times a second. The data is used to calculate exactly how your pelvis, hips, knees and ankles are moving as you walk and run, enabling us to identify any abnormal gait patterns, imbalances or inefficiencies in your movement, leading to individualised treatment plans.

Gait Analysis

Your clinician will ask you to warm-up on the treadmill for as long as you need, and when you are ready we will start collecting data.

Run3D's advanced technology captures real-time measurements of your movement patterns, enabling your clinician to immediately identify any asymmetries or abnormal patterns in your gait. Using Run3D, your clinician can see degrees of movement that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

During the assessment, your clinician may capture tests at different running speeds, or with different footwear, tailoring the process to your specific needs. If appropriate, they may provide gait re-education to help improve abnormal movement patterns.

Individualised care is always at the forefront of our approach, and your clinician will prioritise what is most appropriate for your unique case.

Musculoskeletal Testing

After your gait analysis, your clinician will carry-out a comprehensive set of objective clinical tests to precisely measure your strength, range of motion, alignment, and neuromuscular control.

These tests provide us with valuable data and complete our understanding of your movement patterns. By combining the results of these musculoskeletal tests with the detailed analysis of your gait, we gain thorough insight of how your body is moving and why it may be moving in this particular way.

The data we have collected serves as the foundation of your individualised treatment program. We use the results to guide our decisions, pinpointing areas that require attention and developing targeted strategies to enhance your biomechanical function.

Report Review

Our expert clinician will review your report with you, piecing together all the information to gain a comprehensive understanding of your body's mechanics and using the data to create an individualised plan based on your results.

With the powerful insights provided by Run3D, we can identify your unique running injury risk-factors, which lays the foundations for an effective and targeted injury prevention plan.

Whether you're an athlete aiming for peak performance or someone seeking to improve your running gait, your clinician will use the results to provide you with individualised recommendations and strategies to address any imbalances or abnormalities and improve efficiency.

We empower you with the information you need to optimise your movement.


The results of your assessment will be used to provide a data-driven programme to improve your running biomechanics and reduce your running injury risk. This might include strength and conditioning, home exercises, physiotherapy, footwear/orthotic recommendations, gait re-education or referral to another practitioner.

Our objective is to help you reduce your risk of injury and achieve your goals effectively. By combining the expertise of our clinicians with the insights gained from your Run3D assessment, we can build a comprehensive roadmap that guides your running journey towards successful outcomes.

Trust the process and in our commitment to you as we work together to optimise your musculoskeletal health.
