Running Insoles – Can Smart Insoles Help You Run Faster?

Devised by a team of biomechanists, athletes and engineers, NURRV RUN’s ultra-thin insoles are designed to slip inside your trainers. But these aren’t your standard insoles, they’re also infused with the latest running tech.

That means, every time your foot hits the floor, a whole host of data is streamed from the 32 individual sensors direct to the NURVV coaching app. Monitoring key running metrics from pace and distance to Step Length and Cadence, this essential data is used to provide key coaching insights, personal to you.

Offering advice and guidance based on your individual running habits, with tips on everything from safely increasing your mileage to hitting a goal pace, here are just some of the ways NURVV smart insoles can improve your training.

Want to run faster?

When you first start running it seems all you need to do to run faster is run more. After a while though, these speed gains can plateau, making it much harder to shave off the seconds.

That’s where NURRV’s Pace Coach feature comes in.

How fast you run is determined by two factors:

  • Cadence – the number of times your feet hit the ground as you run
  • Step Length – the distance you cover with each step

Increase one or both of these things and you’ll speed up. Pace Coach lets you know how and when, with real-time technique coaching on the go.

Set a target pace for your run and NURVV keeps you on track with coaching feedback direct to your headphones, phone or smartwatch. You can use Pace Coach to keep you in your target range for multi-pace interval workouts and recovery runs, too. And with more than five hours battery life, NURVV is perfect for guiding you to that race day PB.

Want to reduce your injury risk?

Injuries are the bane of many a runner, but with access to the right information, a stint on the injury bench could be avoided.

Overuse is a common cause of injury – when you’ve been training hard and not giving your body enough time to recover. Biomechanical imbalances and technique also come into play – weaknesses or inefficient form can put additional stress on certain areas of the body, causing them to break down.

NURVV’s Running Health feature crunches the data, giving you the metrics you need to reduce your chance of injury. Looking at your Training Load – your current mileage compared with your typical mileage – the symmetry between your right and left leg, and other aspects of your technique, including Footstrike and Pronation, it details the impact your running habits are having on your injury risk.

You’ll get recommendations on your training volume, helping you find that perfect balance of running to rest that means you can progress without putting yourself in the danger zone. And Running Health also highlights imbalances and issues with form so you can target any potential injury risks with strength training and drills.

When it comes to injury, knowledge can mean power.
