BIOM NATURAL MOTION
Where it all started
In 2010 the German Sport University of Cologne followed a large group of serious runners. All were tested in bio-mechanical gait analysis under three different conditions: barefoot; in their current running shoes; and in BIOM running shoes. Runners were assessed to evaluate their current running style. They then trained for six weeks in BIOM and were reassessed.
After six weeks, the subjects' running styles substantively changed, becoming more efficient and smoother with measurably more of a powerful push-off. Runners adapted to use the muscles in the knees, lower legs, and feet to cushion themselves. They also demonstrated better utilization of the Achilles tendon.
