STEPP analyzes runners’ movements and offers real time feedback

STEPP measures runners’ form, limb motion, and fatigue, and uses the information to offer personalized, real-time coaching.

“STEPP makes you run better, faster, and longer. It has an in-ear coach to motivate runners as they train and suggest data driven drills and lessons to help them push their limits."

Today VST Technologies launched a Kickstarter campaign for its flagship product: STEPP. This wearable measures runners’ form, limb motion, and fatigue, and uses the information to offer personalized, real-time coaching. It is now available on Kickstarter for as low as $99.

STEPP contains two small clips that are placed on both shoes and a small device that attaches to the waistband. This allows for measurement of the movements a runner makes, including knee impact, foot pressure, touchdown angle, hip tilt, pronation and lot more about your running technique and strategy. The information is presented via the STEPP app, which offers insight into a range of performance-related metrics.

“STEPP makes you run better, faster, and longer,” said STEPP co-founder Fisher Ding. “It offers post-running suggestions, general corrections, and drills to up your running ability. Plus, STEPP has an in-ear coach to motivate runners as they train and suggest data driven drills and lessons to help them push their limits.”

STEPP can also sense when a runner’s fatigue has increased to the point that they are liable to do damage to their body, and gives them a warning when they should stop training.

“Professionals use biomechanics, slow-motion camera, and tons of analysis to help runners get stronger and remain injury-free,” said Ding. “With STEPP, this personalized service can be with you anytime, anywhere, and at a fraction of the price.”

STEPP’s Kickstarter campaign runs from August 9 to October 8, 2016. For a full rundown of the pledge levels visit their Kickstarter. Media wishing to interview their personnel should contact PR agent, Jackson Wightman at jackson(at)properpropaganda(dot)net or (514) 605 9255.
