Simplify Running, Get Results

Completely Portable Running Analysis

"Not just a device and not just a course, but a system to change the way running is done" 

 Be a part of something bigger than just looking at runner's form. Be a part of a community willing to take things to the next level to get excellent results!

Yes, We Do Have a Device That is Really Great!

But that is not all. The device is part of a system that looks change the way we treat and train runners.

The ACE Running System:


The backbone of any system is knowledge. Successful running is not just good form. Learn all about why runner's get injured and what running professionals can do to treat and/or prevent injuries and maximize performance. 


Take your knowledge and show the runner how to be their best runner self. The ACE Running movement screen identifies Mobility and Motor Control limitations in minutes. Trace 3D motion analysis makes it feasible and affordable for professionals without reearch experience to enjoy the benefit of the Gold Standard.  


Once you have measured something, how do you know when to change it and whether you actually made the change you were hoping for? The ACE Running system provides detailed programs targeting the most common reasons for changes in running form. Combine this with Trace 3D motion analysis and you can rest assured you are making meaningful lasting changes. 

See how you can use the ACE Running system to provide the highest quality in gait analysis. Imagine what having these capabilities would do for your practice!

Make Meaningful Change

When working with runners we cannot make a meaningful change without knowing how it affects all aspects of their running. With 3D Motion Analysis you get the full view and can instantly measure how your interventions make a difference! Live training and biofeedback available.

Be Your Best

Why not 2D?

When you run, you interact in 3 dimensions. The running literature has shown that many injuries are related to rotations and motions that occur in planes that 2D just cannot measure well. In a study looking at the reliability of 2D gait analysis only 5 of 15 variables were reliable. If you want to work with runners and provide the best service, then you need to get ALL of the right information
