Are you recovering from injury, training for an ultra-marathon, or just hoping to finish your morning run without routine knee pain? Hand and Ortho’s team specializes in addressing the varied needs of all types of runners. Our Running Lab pinpoints the mechanics of your run, then provides specific training guidelines to help you run longer and stronger.
How it works
The Running Lab’s innovative tool is the Helix3D. Helix3D captures a moving picture of the major structures and movements of your run. Three cameras and multiple body sensors create a 3D image of your body in motion. These calculated data points provide the Running Lab team with specific information about how to improve your running experience. In a single capture, Helix3D identifies movement and stability limitations. Multiple captures give our team dynamic information about how the forces involved in running impact your body
The data collected about your movement builds the framework for a highly tailored plan for you. This specialized plan will help you overcome any identified incapacities and maximize your strengths. Our experienced team can improve the way you run.
