Runeasi partners with The Belgium Red lions

Reigning World and Olympic Hockey Champions unleash new high-tech weapon To Extend their world title

The Red Lions are using Runeasi, a new Belgian technology to injury-proof their players in their run-up to the hockey World Cup in January. The technology was developed at KU Leuven and uses a smart belt. The Olympic Champions use the movement quality data it provides to monitor their players more precisely. Red Lions Antoine Kina and Nicolas Pocelet integrated Runeasi in their recent rehab process. “We have been using the Runeasi wearable product during rehab and training of the Red Lions and have found it extremely beneficial in identifying imbalances in athletes. This has helped us identify injury risks and allows us to improve our prevention protocols accordingly” says Mick Beunen, Physical coach of the Red Lions.

Adam Commens, High performance director of the Red Lions, states the importance of the partnership: “We are very pleased to partner with Runeasi. We already have seen many use cases in our day-to-day training environment for athletes returning from injury or in movement analysis. In preparation for the World Cup we can’t leave any stone unturned, and Runeasi is one of the tools we use to ensure our athletes have an injury free period before this major event”.

Kurt Schütte, the CEO of Runeasi agrees: “We believe Runeasi provides the Red Lions those extra percentage points that can help them extend their World Title. Runeasi helps to identify and improve each player’s weakest links. Our Runeasi AI-technology measures what’s invisible to the naked eye. For example, Runeasi picks up when a player runs with poor stability, something that has been scientifically linked to fatigue and an increased risk for injury. Medical staff can now see these objective insights of their athletes in real-time and immediately act on them with personalized exercises. Recently we’ve received global interest, with physios and athletic trainers wanting to work more objectively with their recreational athletes.

3 REASONS TO CAPTURE DATA USING THE RUNEASI BELT

1. No motion artifacts. The Runeasi belt is secured tightly against the body and the skin to capture the actual movements of the body’s center of mass. Attaching or clipping the sensor directly to the pants would allow the sensor to wobble from side to side (i.e., measuring the wobbling of the pants, and not the human body.

2.  Easy to standardize the sensor’s positioning. The Runeasi belt makes it easy to consistently position the sensor close to the center of mass. Attaching the sensor directly to the pants would dramatically affect the reliability of the outputs as the height and tightness of the pants will affect the results. Moreover, these pants attachments often shift sideways while running which further decreases the data quality. 

 3. Comfortable to wear.  Hundreds of runners confirmed that they immediately forget about our belt while running. This allows them to move without any restrictions and allows us to capture movements that are representative of a client’s true biomechanics.
