Fleet Feet Gaithersburg has partnered with NovaCare Rehabilitation, a leading provider of physical therapy, to help you improve performance and prevent injury by measuring exactly how you move when you run. This assessment will occur at the store, during specific time slots. The assessment costs $75 (all money goes to NovaCare, not to Fleet Feet Gaithersburg).
The assessment lasts about 40 minutes. NovaCare will use "wearable tech" during the assessment, partly on a treadmill. This cutting-edge technology could be the very thing you're looking for, in-between training programs, to help with injury prevention and improved performance. This cutting-edge technology uses revolutionary wireless wearable sensors to evaluate and measure a range of running metrics, including ground reaction forces on each leg, acceleration /deceleration, ground contact time and cadence critical to injury prevention and improving performance. NovaCare’s licensed physical therapists and running specialists use this information along with video gait analysis and clinical examination to identify a corrective plan to help you run more efficiently and prevent orthopaedic injury. NovaCare's licensed physical therapist will be there to use the information captured and clinical examination to identify and develop a corrective plan to help you run more efficiently and prevent orthopedic injury.
Your in-store running analysis involves a 40 minute dorsaVi running assessment with wearable sensors conducted on our store treadmill and a brief video and corrective plan based on your results.
