dorsaVi’s running biofeedback is used to give real time feedback to an athlete during a run. It can be used either on a treadmill or during a run outdoors.
In a biofeedback session, the feedback is given directly from the RFD. As the data is captured, saved directly to the RFD, it can be disconnected from the computer to measure movement remotely.
The RFD will show the symmetry of the subject’s loading on their left leg versus their right leg on its screen during the course of the run.
At the end of the biofeedback session, the RFD is connected back to the computer and offloaded for the data to be viewed, analyzed, and a report generated.
