Elite runner's MOT

Treating you like an elite runner

Our best runner's MOT service combines the best 3D running gait analysis MOT and strength testing MOT all in one.

NK Active was one of the first to use 3D gait analysis in clinical practice and the only clinic in Hampshire to have Run3D. 3D gait analysis is a state-of-the-art diagnostics tool that uses 3D motion cameras and sensors to scientifically analyse the way you run or walk, so no more guessing on what we think is happening.

It is the same technology used to make films like "Planet of the Apes".

Combined with hand-held dynamometer strength testing targeted at runners, treating you like an elite runner.

This gives the complete service so we can look at really get to the point and help you smash those PB's and build up injury reslience

The process

After the initial assessment, we will marker you up with 39 reflective markers from hip to foot and build a lower limb skeleton of you. You are given time to get used to the treadmill before we start to collect the data.

This may include different speeds, different shoes, with or without insoles (orthoses) or even connect you to a heart rate strap monitor what happens as you get fatigued.

The data is real-life feedback that can highlight balance issues, muscle weakness, increased motion in a certain area or an error in your technique – all of which can lead to or explain your injury and help us build your treatment plan.

Strength testing

We combine running-specific strength and flexibility testing with the 3D gait analysis data to get the complete picture of lower limb function, strength, and flexibility.

This helps get a good idea of lower limb function. Helping you become a better runner

Fatigue testings

We can help simulate the effect of fatigue perfect for those 10-mile, half-marathon, and marathon events, to see how fatigue effects you.

We simutalte fatigue by keeping your heart rate above 140bpm for 30 mintures and then come the 2 data sets.

Video of the process

The 3D gait analysis is only avaliable at our Romsey clinic, however it is possible transport it for a day of testing and screening for teams as requried.

We have made a video below of the process
