NURVV: UNDERSTAND YOUR RUNNING

The team from NURVV explain how NURVV running insoles can benefit all types of runners.


With 6.8 million of us pulling on our trainers and going for a run at least twice a week, running is one of the most popular sports in the UK. The reasons why people run are many and varied, some of us do it for our mental health, some to stay fit, others are in it for the social side or the race bling …

Whatever your reasons for running though, once you start logging those miles, it gets pretty addictive. Many of us log our runs with apps or watches and set goals from running faster and further, to staying injury-free. But have you ever thought about tracking your run from the most logical part of the body – your feet?

Smart insoles, like NURVV RUN, track your distance, pace and key aspects of your technique including cadence, step length, foot strike and the symmetry between the left and right sides of your body. Using the latest tech – 32 precision sensors in two lightweight insoles – NURVV helps you understand exactly how your body moves as you run and provides guidance to help you improve.

If you’re in it for the long run, here’s why we think the future of running is at your feet.

NURVV Run can help you stay injury free

While there are varying statistics on how many runners get injured each year – ranging from anywhere between 30-79% – if you’ve ever had a stint on the injury bench, you’ll know just how frustrating it is.

 

While some runners are injured by tripping over a paving slab or stray tree root, one of the most common causes of injury is overuse – increasing the volume or intensity of your runs too quickly without giving your body time to rest and recover.

NURVV’s Running Health feature takes the guesswork out of training by providing a handy graph that lets you know just how healthy and sustainable your running is. It gives guidance on suggested mileage for the following week, so you can progress gradually without being tempted to overdo things. Importantly, it also looks at your individual running technique. By providing the kind of stats you usually only get in a running lab – including cadence, pronation and the balance between the left and right side of your body as you run – it can highlight any aspects of your form that could be putting you at risk of injury and give you tips on how to improve.

NURVV Run can help you run faster

Without the motivation of a crowd on race day or the healthy competition of running with others, it can be tough to pick up the pace on your training runs.

 

That’s where NURVV Run has your back. With the Pace Coach feature you can set a target time for your run and NURVV provides live audio coaching to help you reach your target. Rather than just telling you to run faster or slower, it tells you HOW. In-ear and visual cues give you actionable insights on your cadence – the number of times your feet hit the ground as your run – and step length – the distance you cover each step – to help you stay in your target zone and hit that goal.

NURVV Run can help you improve your technique

Working on your running technique can not only help you run faster and reduce your injury risk, it can also make you a more efficient runner. NURVV Run helps you get the full picture, providing vital metrics on your running technique so you know exactly how you run, without having to film yourself or visit a sports lab.

 

As well as cadence and step length you’ll learn about pronation – the rolling motion of your foot as you land – foot strike and which part of your foot hits the ground first – heel, mid or forefoot – and whether there are any imbalances between the left and right side of your body.

 

Wondering what to do with the info? NURVV’s easy-to-follow app highlights any areas for improvement, providing tips, guidance and suggested drills to help you become a better runner. 

 

It’s like having your own personal running coach with you, each and every time you train.
