The term "shin splints" refers to pain along the shin bone, also known as the tibia. It is the large bone in the front of your lower leg. Shin splints are common in runners, dancers, and military recruits. The strained tissue usually heals after two weeks of rest, but if exacerbated, shin splints can result in more serious stress fractures.

Nurvv, a London-based wearable device maker, launched smart insoles that will help runners understand their gait and run injury-free. While there are similar products in the market, Nurvv Run is a little different. The device uses 32 high-precision sensors fitted inside lightweight insoles to accurately capture data from the feet at 1,000 times per second, per sensor. In February, the company raised $9 Million Venture Round Led by Hiro Capital.

Features include:

  • 16 high-precision sensors for each foot capture data at the point of action
  • Multi-sensor trackers record your run with world-leading accuracy
  • Real-time monitoring generates metrics with live audio and visual cues
  • Running Health helps you to manage and improve injury risk
  • Daily Run recommendation to maintain your optimal fitness
  • Lightweight trackers (22g each) with IP67 rating, giving full protection against dust, mud, sweat and water
  • Long-lasting innersoles built to last over the duration of 3 pairs of running shoes
  • Soft, light and breathable. Designed to fit comfortably in any running shoe and with any custom insole
  • Supports four ways to run: Garmin, Apple Watch, phone or in standalone mode with NURVV Run only
  • Connects to Bluetooth Heart Rate monitor to provide live HR zone cues during your run and a comprehensive report on your heart rate after
  • 5+ hours of operation on a single charge

Over the past three years, Nurvv Run has been tested by hundreds of athletes, universities and leading institutions including SATRA Technology and the National Physical Laboratory.

The captured data, which includes unique running metrics such as cadence, step length, footstrike, pronation and balance, is fed into the NURVV Run coaching app to show a complete picture of the wearer’s running technique. It uses advanced biomechanics to deliver simple, actionable insights as well as personalized coaching that gives guidance on how to improve before, during and after each run.
