Project description

The Lower Impact Runner has been developed by a multidisciplinary team of sports scientists, engineers and musicologists. By means of a hardware and software application it has been made possible to reduce the repeated shocks that people experience while walking. The system acts as a form of biofeedback that allows the runner to adjust his running style. With this project we aim to reduce health and related costs and try to generate both a social and economic impact.
