When the customer has finished the walking analysis, it is time to review and analyse. If you’ve just done a session, the walking analysis will pop up automatically after the session.
Details of the walking analysis
In this article, we will be covering the following details of the running analysis:
The general information contains the walking 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 about your store, and the date and time that the session has been recorded.
The ARIONHUB app measures two different categories and four key takeaways. The first category is performance, and the second category is safety. The four key takeaways are central landing, single support phase, swing time, and stability. 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).
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 detail with the customer, you can click on the show over time button. 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 walking analysis.
When you have selected the performance and video or video-only walking analysis, the video analysis will be available afterwards when analysing the results. The video analysis offers three options to analyse the walking 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.
The last part of the walking 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.
