In 2011, we began the RRI (running-related injury) project, aimed at runners of all levels looking to participate in a long-distance running event (10km, 10 miles, a half-marathon or marathon). This study aimed to determine risk factors of injuries sustained by regular, long-distance runners. See the results for the season 2011/2012
In 2012, the first RRI-Intervention study was launched. The objective was to analyse running injury incidences among runners using different types of shoe cushioning. Acces the scientific paper with the results here: Influence of midsole hardness of standard cushioned shoes on running-related injury risk.
The RRI-Intervention 2 study began in 2014, aiming to study the effect of an integrated pronation control system in the shoe on the RRI incidence.

Finally, the RRI-Intervention 3 study was launched in September 2014. This study aimed to analyse the effect of the heel-toe height difference (the drop) of the running shoes on the injury incidence. Acces to the newsletter with the results here: Newsletter June 2015 (Scientific paper out soon).
