RRI4 - End of recruitment

The Sports Medicine Research Laboratory (LIH) has launched a new large study on running. This study is the first to investigate the running technique and the risk of injury in a cohort of over 800 runners! This is one of the largest groups of runners observed over a period of several months. The aim of the study is to identify the influence of the damping properties of the running shoes, the body weight, as well as the running technique on the risk of injury.

The recruitment phase is completed now. More than 870 participants were included in the study. The latter will finish at the end of July 2018. The study conclusions will be available on this site by the end of the year.

Since a few months, you can link your Strava account to TIPPS, enabling an automatic upload of your training sessions to TIPPS (hence not needing to upload the data manually).

All you need to do is to find the connection tab in the settings and click on the connection button. Once you set up the connection, your Strava data will from that date onwards automatically be synchronised to TIPPS. TIPPS will send you a mail once the training has been synchronised and  you can click on the subjective feeling (sRPE) for that session to provide you with the training load calculation.
