Here at Lumo Bodytech HQ, we’ve been hard at work for the past couple of months for a very exciting new project. Inspired by our passion for integrating technology to solve important biomechanics and our enthusiasm for running, we are so thrilled to introduce Lumo Run: a pair of revolutionary smart running shorts (capris for women) with sensor technology embedded in the waistband to coach you to run faster, and farther.
Equipped with 9-axis sensor technology and advanced algorithms, the Lumo Run brings the power of a running lab and the personal attention of a coach — all within the lining of your shorts. We’ve teamed up with PhD Biomechanist, Rebecca Schultz, and running experts at Loughborough University in the UK to determine key characteristics for ideal running form, as well as coaching tips to help runners improve their form for enhanced efficiency and performance. The Lumo Run smart shorts will be the first ever on the market to be able to capture research-grade running biometrics without the costly and heavy equipment of a full running lab.
Lumo Run measures the following metrics for running efficiency:
|Cadence: how frequently your foot contacts the ground every minute.
Bounce: the up and down movement your body experiences while you run.
Ground Contact Time: the amount of time your foot stays on the ground during each step.
|Braking: the decrease in speed your body experiences on each step.
Stride Length: the distance between the initial ground contact of one foot to when that same foot hits the ground again.
Pelvic Rotation: how much your pelvis tilts on three axes. It is a measure of how stable your core is.
In addition to these metrics, Lumo Run tracks distance, time, pace, and map routes through your phone, provides post-run summaries on one each of the metrics, as well as recommendations on what to work on for your next run. Lumo Run also gives real-time audio coaching cues through your headphones to help you achieve your best run every time.
Lumo Run is available for pre-order now!
