200% in first week
Scribe Labs unveiled its first product, runScribe, on Kickstarter last week and saw its campaign surpass the $50,000 funding goal in 52 hours. The fitness wearable provides kinematic metrics that help an athlete understand how factors like shoe selection, terrain and fatigue impact their running mechanics. Built with an advanced 9-axis integrated motion processor, runScribe’s kinematic engine delivers the most advanced set of running metrics available outside of a professional lab environment.
The metrics offered in today’s sports wearables are too limited to help athletes make meaningful change to improve their performance or reduce injury. While most wearable technology merely tracks steps, distance and speed – runScribe makes thousands of calculations for every stride and reports on 13 detailed metrics using kinematics – the study of the geometry of motion. The scale and detail of data available through runScribe has never been captured in a consumer device, giving athletes, trainers and coaches real-world data to make informed training decisions.
