Monitoring Running Exposure with Wearables
Allison Gruber, PhD, FACSM and John Davis are our guests for this Mountain Land Running Medicine Podcast. Dr. Gruber is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Kinesiology at Indiana University in Bloomington and is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine. Dr. Gruber’s research focuses on the mechanics of gait, with a particular focus on running and the mechanisms for running injury development. She has incorporated mobile devices to track running and non-running physical activity behaviors, as well as monitor changes to whole-body motion complexity due to training. John Davis is a PhD student in Human Performance at Indiana University with a concentration in biomechanics. His current research involves using wearable technology to assess running mechanics, with the goal of identifying risk factors for overuse injury.
