A new smart insole is aiming to bring detailed insights, AI coaching and injury prevention to runners.
Startup Arion's eponymous insoles bring continuous gait analysis in real time, allowing runners to break down their technique and receive data regarding cadence, foot-strike, step length, balance, contact time and stability.
The pair of pressure-sensitive insoles slip underneath the regular soles of a running shoe, with a GPS pod resting on the outside of the shoe. That means users can leave your phone at home when out running, while Arion also offers a smartwatch app to allow users to access data related to their run in real time. If a wearer also has a pair of headphones connected to their smartphone, they can listen to audio feedback in order to make adjustments.
