During a walking analysis, the customer will probably try out multiple walking shoes. All these different walking analyses will help you explain to the customer which pair of walking shoes fits them best. This guide will help you understand how to perform multiple walking analyses and how to compare them.
Note: If you want an example analysis of the ARIONHUB system, please visit our ARION ACADEMY.
Once the customer has performed the first walking analysis, and they want to try out another pair, simply click on the + add session sign. After clicking the sign, you will then be automatically redirected to the shoe selection part where you can scan the shoebox or select the brand from the brand matrix list.
iPad only: After that, it is important to choose the type of walking analysis and pair the pods.
Note: To make the walking analysis pass smoothly, keep the pods connected to the insoles. Remove the insoles with the pods still connected from the first pair of walking shoes and place them in the next pair of walking shoes. By doing this, the pods will not lose connection with the ARIONHUB app, which means that you can easily go on with the onboarding of the next pair of shoes.
You can repeat this process as many times as you want. Every time you add another walking analysis, the walking analysis will automatically pop up next to the previous walking analysis that has been performed.
Details of the walking analysis
When comparing the walking analysis, the ARIONHUB app will calculate takeaways to help you and your staff to compare the different analyses, and to help select the right shoe for the customer. At the top of the comparison screen, you can find the takeaways. The first category is performance, and the second category is safety. Beneath the categories you can find the four key metrics, central landing, single support phase, swing ratio, and varied 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 (personal best) or safety-based (injury prevention).
If you want to go into more detail, you can scroll down to the performance profile, where you can find all metrics that have been recorded during the walking analysis. Based on the different sessions, the performance profile will show a green checkmark if that metric was the best overall.
Hiding a walking analysis
When performing multiple walking analyses, you might want to hide the walking analysis that might be less important, or if you want to compare the first shoe with the fourth shoe together on one screen. If you click on the ‘eye’ icon next to the specific walking analysis, the session will collapse. If you want to see the walking analysis again, you can click on the eye icon again and it will open. You can collapse as many sessions as you would like.
