The Lumo Run wearable technology is something that isn’t your ordinary fitness tracker. This sensor will be able to track steps per minute, ground contact time, and stride length. It’s exactly like having a real life coach that gives you immediate information and advice about your form and performance.
Lumo has worked with PhD Biomechanist, Rebecca Schultz, and running specialists at Loughborough University in the UK. With their expert knowledge and research they have honed in on the important characteristics for an optimal running structure. Special measurements like the movement of the body as you run, and the rotations of your pelvis in different dimensions are truly things you can’t find anywhere else.
Lumo is the only company that is measuring what is going on at the core of the body and utilizing that information to determine every important metric of motion in running,”said Mark Allen, a world renowned triathlete who just signed an endorsement contract as an advocate and advisor for the wearable technology. “Lumo is light years ahead of the others with this type of thinking.”
What makes it really unique compared to their competitors is the Lumo Run Men’s Smart Short’s and Women’s Capris. The shorts and capris are embedded with the same sensor technology in the waistband of the apparel. This makes the running experience gadget free. Thanks to the lightweight and waterproof sensor, it will let users see the biomechanics data without the irritation and annoyance of putting on another device.
“Lumo Run is an essential piece of technology for athletes that will enhance running performance while reducing the risk of injury. It will be a pivotal training and racing tool that will help improve running form and biomechanics over the course of a half or full distance triathlon,” said Meredith Kessler, one of the top triathletes in the world who also signed with Lumo Run like Allen.
Furthermore, the Lumo Run will have the ability to give audio coaching tips through headphones. Being able to provide real time recommendations while wearers are running could make users think twice about spending money on a trainer or coach.
