RUNfit is a comprehensive running assessment system. It uses video treadmill, digital and clinical assessment tools to support injury prevention, rehabilitation and performance development for runners of all levels.
Running injuries are common and take a variety of forms. Up to 79.3% of runners report to have been affected by injury, with the knee accounting for 50% of injuries. Factors contributing to running injuries vary greatly and are rarely self-evident, which is why a comprehensive approach to assessing individual risk is recommended. RUNfit provides a unique solution that includes a multifaceted approach to gait assessment, injury risk profiling and performance optimisation.
Following the online questionnaire, completed in the clinic or at home, a RUNfit assessment includes 2 attendances at our clinic in Busselton. The first is a 60 minute session and the second session is 20 to 40 minutes.
The all inclusive cost for the online assessment, two clinical consultations and report involved in the RUNfit assessment is $285 including GST. Private health or other rebates may apply.
The foot and ankle play an integral role in gait analysis. Undesirable foot and ankle mechanics pose more than just a risk in isolation but are often implicated in other common sites of injury, particularly the knee. A RUNfit assessment includes a thorough analysis of foot mechanics and structure. RUNfit assesses gait with and without orthotics in situ where a client already has orthotics. Where podiatry referral is required, the assessment data can be used in helping create an optimal insole or other orthotic device.
Please wear your usual running clothing and footwear (if new footwear, please also bring a worn pair of running shoes to be assessed). Also bring a water bottle and any orthotics or insoles you use for your running shoes.
