RunSafe

Multidisciplinary running assessment

RunSafe is a sports wellness program for runners focusing on personalized health advice, injury prevention, and performance enhancement. RunSafe brings together experts from various UCSF clinics to cater to all the needs of a runner. What sets RunSafe apart from traditional gait analysis is our multi-disciplinary, comprehensive approach-- having all the specialists in one room-- allowing the runner to have a holistic evaluation in just one visit.

The 2-hour assessment includes:

  • ​Video Gait Analysis - Your running biomechanics will be evaluated from multiple camera angles with computerized motion analysis software by our biomechanist.
  • Strength & Flexibility Assessment - Your functional strength and flexibility, using focused assessment techniques, will be evaluated by our physical therapist.
  • Wellness Counseling - Our sports scientist will discuss your nutritional habits & training routine and make personalized recommendations that support your athletic & health goals.
  • Foot Dynamics & Footwear Assessment - Your foot shape & dynamics, as well as your footwear, will be assessed by a certified orthotics & prosthetics expert.
  • Video Debriefing & Recommendations - We'll discuss the results with you and provide a personalized report card, outlining the findings & recommendations from our team.
