The first thing you need to do before you're starting a gait analysis is to connect the ARION pods with the insoles and the ARIONHUB app. This guide will help you to connect the ARION pods. You can find the following information in this article:
First, prepare the running shoes of the customer. Place the insoles underneath the existing insoles of the running shoes. Next, make sure that the pods are charged to be able to carry out the gait analysis.
Attach the pods to the insoles, according to the video or image below. When they turn blue you are ready to connect the pods to the ARIONHUB app.
Note: Keep the ARION pods connected to the ARION Smart Insoles during a running analysis with a customer. When switching shoes, remove the ARION Smart Insoles with the ARION pods connected to them and place them in the next pair of shoes. If the ARION pods disconnect with the ARIONHUB app, the app needs to search for the ARION pods again.
Connecting the pods
When you have selected the running shoes that the customer will try on during the analysis, the next screen will allow you to connect the ARION pods. Simply follow the instructions, insert (the insoles), attach (the pods), and connect (with the ARIONHUB app). Make sure that Bluetooth and internet are enabled to find the ARION pods. When the ARION pods are attached to the ARION Smart Insoles, but they are not connected to the ARIONHUB app whilst Bluetooth is enabled, the app will search for the pods saying: Scanning…
If one of the ARION pods is connected to the ARIONHUB app, the app will mention which ARION Smart Insole is connected (left or right foot) down below with the message left/right pod detected. If both ARION pods are detected by the ARIONHUB app, down below the message 2 pods detected and the live pressure map will appear.
When both ARION pods are detected, the live pressure map will appear on the screen of the ARIONHUB app. If you want to do a video & performance analysis, the live pressure map will appear on the bottom right of the screen. If you want to do a performance only analysis, the live pressure map will appear big in the middle of the screen. If you want to do a video only analysis, there will be no live pressure map available because there are no ARION pods and ARION Smart Insoles required for this analysis type.
To make sure the ARION Smart Insoles and ARION pods are working, you can always ask the customer to move around from their heels to their toes to show the live pressure.
Colours of the pod
The ARION pods can have different colours during connecting and when connected to the ARIONHUB app. Down below you can find the different types of colours during this stage of the onboarding:
Dark Blue: Successfully connected to the ARION Smart Insoles, and/or after a running analysis has been performed.
Green (blinking): Successfully connected to the ARIONHUB app, and/or during a running analysis. The ARION pods will blink green when they are connected to the ARIONHUB app. During the session, the ARION pods will also blink green.
