Dr. Jonathan Folland on Running Biomechanics

As part of the development of Lumo Run, we have partnered with the biomechanics experts over at Loughborough University in the UK to identify important biomechanical measures in running for optimized form for performance and reducing the risk of injury. Dr. Jonathan Folland is one of the lead researchers at Loughborough University with years of experience and expertise in sports science and exercise physiology. In this video, we asked him a few questions on why biomechanics is so important in running.


Dr. Jonathan Folland has expertise in the physiology and biomechanics of human performance. Jonathan has a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Sciences, a Ph.D. in Exercise Physiology, and has been lecturing and researching in human performance for 20 years. He has attracted research funding from sports organizations, industry and health charities whilst publishing over 60 original research papers and supervising 9 Ph.D.s to completion. Jonathan is an Associate Editor for Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Biology.
