POD (PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION DEVICE)

Weighing 19g and being 10-meter waterproof resistant, it’s the perfect companion for any activity. Just shake to activate and clip it to the back of your waist to begin your journey. 

FEATURES:

  • Left/Right Balance - POD will tell you which side of your body you favour and help identify potential injuries before they occur as well as correct your running form. 
  • Stride Ratio - This is your Stride Height divided by your Stride Length, the ideal ratio ensures you are using your body’s energy to propel yourself forwards and not upwards.
  • Stride Height - Or vertical oscillation, measures how high your body lifts off the ground during your running stride. If it’s too low or too high, then it indicates room for improvement.
  • Stride Length - This helps prevent overstriding which requires more muscle strength and breaks your forward motion by landing on your heel. 
  • Ground Time - The lower the time better, as more time on the ground, means the less time you are using to move forward.
  • Form Power - The amount of time wasted due to inefficiencies in your running form, so the lower the number, the more efficient of a runner you are.
  • Cadence - This is the steps per minute, a higher number indicates that you are a fast runner who is not overstriding. Cadence plus Stride Length gives you, your speed.
