Ready to run in the new year: Kinematix Tune

Techstination feature for Wednesday, January 4, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   It’s that time of year when a lot of us are resolved to get in better shape.   If you’re planning to get serious about running, a company called Kinematix is out with techie gear to help you do it right and avoid injuries.    Kinematix Tune consists of sensors built into insoles that attach to Bluetooth pods that clip on your sneakers.   They can store data and sync with your smartphone and the Tune app.  CEO Paulo dos Santos…

“From the information, from the gait, the way we put the feet on the ground, it’s possible to extract knowledge about, for example, how an athlete is behaving and what can be done to improve it, for example.”

The data in the app will help you run smarter and if you’re working with a trainer the info can be shared.  There’s more at Kinematix.pt.    You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
