When the customer has finished the running analysis, it is time to review and analyse. If you’ve just done a session, the running analysis will pop up automatically after the session.

Details of the running analysis

In this article we will be covering the following details of the running analysis:

General information

The general information contains the running shoe that the customer has tried on. The brand will be visible and if the shoe box has been scanned, the model name will also be visible. When scrolling all the way down, you can find the general information of your store, and the date and time that the session has been recorded.




The ARIONHUB app measures four takeaways that are combined in two different categories. The first category is performance, and the second category is safety. The takeaways system is based on gold and silver badges, where the gold badge means the best metric for that session and the silver badge means it is the second-best metric for the session. These takeaways can help you explain to the customer if a shoe is more performance-based (running personal bests) or safety-based (injury prevention).

Insole recommendation

The insole recommendation feature allows you to recommend an insole for the customer based on their running technique. There are three types of insole recommendation possible:

  • Cushioning insole: Based on your analysis, a cushioning insole may help to reduce loading.

  • Cushioning insole with heel lift: Based on your analysis, a cushioning insole with a heel lift may help to reduce loading.

  • Heel lift insole: Based on your analysis, a heel lift may help to reduce loading.

It is possible to disable the insole recommendation if this is not relevant for your running analysis. Click here to read how to disable the insole recommendation.

Average step & bioload

The pressure map of the customer will be visible in the average step section. Here you can see the average step and average pressure of the customer. By clicking on the chain icon, you can play the animation for the left and right foot sequentially or in parallel. You can pause the pressure map and swipe to the left and right to find different stages of the average step (footstrike, mid-stance and toe-off). If you want to learn more about how to read the footstrike, have a look at ARION ACADEMY or read this article.

The bioload of the customer will also be available in this section. You can see the body parts of the customer turning red. The redder the body part, the more loading is on this specific area of the body. Eventually, the redder the body part, the more likely the customer is to experience fatigue, sore muscles or potential injuries after the session. If you want to learn more about how to read the bioload, have a look at ARION ACADEMY or read this article.

Pro tip (iPad only): If you want to go into more details with the customer, you can click on the show over time. This section will allow you to go into more detail by viewing every single step that has been taken during the analysis. You can view the pressure map and bioload next to each other. When scrolling through the time bar, you can easily see the pressure map and bioload changing per second of the running analysis.

Video analysis

When you have selected the performance and video or video only running analysis, the video analysis feature will be available afterwards when analyzing the results. The video analysis offers three options to analyze the running identity of the customer: play/pause and scroll through the video, make the video bigger, and the video analysis feature. Read here how to use the video analysis feature.

Performance profile

The last part of the running analysis is the performance profile. In this section, you can view all the measured metrics. When clicking on show more, all metrics will appear down below.

iPad only: If you want to view a more in-depth analysis of the metrics, or would like to compare different types of metrics, easily go to the show over time section, where you can select two different metrics to compare to each other. This section also allows showing the visibility of a metric per foot (left or right or both).

The next step is to record multiple sessions to compare them side by side.
