DOR Podcast #151: How Brands are Using Data to Shape the Future of Running

On today's episode, Matt is joined by Dr. Jeff Moreno, physical therapist and co-founder of DashLX. DashLX is pioneering how running activity data can be gathered and analyzed to enhance the training and overall well-being of athletes. Jeff has a unique opportunity to work not only with individual athletes, many of them among the elites, but also directly with some of the biggest running brands on the scene (Brooks, Saucony, Puma, and more). Matt & Jeff discuss how running data from our watches and phones can be used to assess biomechanics, injury risk, and even shoe choice. Get an inside look at how some of the biggest running footwear brands are using data in partnership with DashLX to inform their design choices and product strategies. Jeff also lends his medical expertise to give practical advice to runners of all levels on how to better use their own activity data to stay strong and healthy.
