Wearable Gait Analysis System

RunScribe is a comprehensive analysis platform for hiking, running, and walking gait (coaches, podiatrists, physical therapists, gait labs, etc). By capturing data on both feet at every step, RunScribe provides a detailed view of gait mechanics in the lab or out in the wild.

The RunScribe System

1 RunScribe Pods

RunScribe footpods record every step of your hike, run or walk.

2 RunScribe App

View in RealTime / Upload run data using the RunScribe iOS or Android apps.

3 RunScribe Dashboard

The RunScribe dashboard offers powerful visualization and analysis tools to analyze metrics, compare runs, identify trends and track the impact of shoes & terrain on stride mechanics.

The Power of RunScribe

Change Can Be Good … or Painful

Small changes can have big impacts. RunScribe lets you quantify that change. RunScribe is the only wearable system to provide Left/Right symmetry across every metric.

RunScribe’s metrics highlight tradeoffs between the core elements of stride mechanics: Efficiency, Motion, Shock, & Power

Accuracy Matters

Over 250 clinicians, coaches, gait labs (including many footwear brands), and academic researchers around the globe trust RunScribe to deliver consistent and accurate metrics. We have partnered with leading researchers to validate the RunScribe footsteps model and ensure accurate metrics.

We’re committed to sharing our research and validation studies with our community.

RunScribe for Runners

  • Injured? If you’ve struggled with injuries, and like data, RunScribe provides valuable quantitative feedback on how you’re moving.
  • Shoe Selection? Our new ShoePrint view allows you to quickly compare how you’re landing/taking-off in your new kicks.
  • Running Power? RunScribe lets you know how much power (both L and R) you’re using to hold speed, which can be a powerful pacing tool.
“RunScribe helped me shave 15 minutes off of my time at the Boston marathon, and guided me on the road to recovery from an ankle injury.”
– Kevin P.

RunScribe for Coaches

  • RealTime? Using the RunScribe mobile app, you can see their core gait metrics live.
  • Multiple Runners? With RunScribe’s new Runner view, it’s easy to see data from as many athletes as you coach.
  • Distance Coaching? Using RunScribe to monitor your runner, you not only can monitor their training load, but also keep a watchful eye on any subtle changes that could be early indication of overtraining/injury.

RunScribe for Clinics

  • RealTime? Using the RunScribe mobile app, you can see their core gait metrics (both running and walking) live.
  • Multiple Patients? With RunScribe’s new Runner view, you can create and manage data from as many patients as you need.
  • In the Lab or In the Wild? RunScribe makes it easy to quickly collect data on a treadmill or sending them out for a real road/trail run.

RunScribe for Researchers

  • RealTime? Using the RunScribe mobile app, you can see their core gait metrics (both running and walking) live.
  • Multiple Participants? With RunScribe’s new Runner view, you can create and manage data from as many participants as you need (from 1 to over 100!).

A Global Running Databank


The RunScribe databank is growing by millions of footsteps a week and currently contains over one billion data points. By creating the largest databank of running kinematic data, our goal is to democratize running data – to bring advanced metrics out of the lab and into the wild. By putting accurate, reliable and cost-effective tools into the hands of athletes, clinicians, and sports professionals, we’re empowering the running community with holistic and more meaningful ways to assess, track and train using real world data.

The RunScribe Community

  • On Symmetry:

    “My data showed an asymmetry between my legs on foot strike & shock. Today’s visit to chiropractor confirmed a misalignment in hips and an adjustment corrected it. Nice to have an indicator from workout data before I begin to feel symptoms. Will need to see how the next few runs go & what the data looks like.”— Ed S

  • On FootStrike Type:

    “RunScribe diagnosed a “flaw” in my running form. It reflected a mid foot strike on one foot, and a heel strike on the other. I’d never have known, but for RunScribe. It also has helped me move from a huge pronation to a neutral shoe.”— Guy J

  • On Tracking Change to Avoid Injury:

    “So now when I look at my stats after a run and see something out of ordinary, I can adjust a bit and feel better the next run, as opposed to my previous experience getting worse and worse until I get injured. Since getting the pods, I did two half marathons with no issues, and a couple of shorter races. My regular runs are usually between 1 and 6 miles, and I run a few times a week. Cannot recall any injuries in 2016, all thanks to RunScribe analytics.”— Nina S
