Mr Scott Tucker – CEO Vimazi
How Tuning Athletic Footwear By Running Pace Can Reduce Tissue Stress and Affect Performance
Vimazi set out to do a better job of reducing impact stress and over-pronation. We discovered how midsoles need to be tuned differently in the rearfoot from the forefoot, according to gait (walking vs running), and according to pace. Learn about the fascinating science behind pace-tuned technology and its practical application.
Mr Trevor Prior – Podiatric Surgeon
Can Running Footwear Influence Lower Limb Function – How Can We Tell?
There are many myths surrounding running footwear and how we asses the effect on lower limb function. The traditional method of assessing the rearfoot position of the shoe has been shown to have no scientific basis, yet this paradigm has not been replaced with an alternative method.
Reviewing previous research, our laboratory data on running shoe ride and the effect of trying to alter lower limb function, combined with the use of inshoe pressure and 3D gait analysis in the clinical environment, this presentation will explore the challenges encountered.
Dr Karen Langone – Doctor of Podiatric Medicine
The Female Runner: What ARE The Issues?
Female runners differ from male athletes in anatomy, biomechanics, hormonal status and nutritional needs. Female runners also demonstrate differences in these areas over the course of their individual lifetimes. These differences can predispose the athlete to injury and do lead to different injury patterns in females.
This presentation will discuss the evidence based medicine on these factors and the implications in keeping female runners healthy.

Running Shoe Workshop
This hands-on workshop will dive into the latest developments in running footwear, and how to interpret those developments with respect to medical uses. The discussion will include footwear materials, densities, foams, thicknesses, drops, and more.
Prior, Langone, Hartner, Bartold, Conenello
Round Table Discussion
This panel discussion will address the new and current developments in how running shoe tech is affecting injuries and treatment from a clinician's perspective.
