A few days ago, Gisela Carrión visited us to carry out a running test with podiatric exploration. This kind of exploration is a service which we have nowadays for runners in our clinic located in Carlos III, where the Institut Català del Peu has the Biomechanical Department in the Sporting Performance with a 3D photogrammetry and electromyography system. During this test, we measured in a synchronized way, the muscular activity and also a series of kinematic parameters, like the width and times of steps, angles in the joints, speed, accelerations, etc.
Gisela Carrión is a trail runner who has got great and important titles during her profesional career. In 2019 year she became Spain’s and Catalonia’s Champion of Vertical Kilometer and, besides, Champion of Vertical Kilomeer in Spain’s Cup, raising very competitive positions, like the fifth place in the World’s Championship, she got also the very deserved third place in Behobia-San Sebastián, as well as a great fourth place in the Vertical Kilometer in Italy’s European Championship.
Gisela is carrying out a brilliant professional career. It has been a great pleasure for our staff to conduct this biomechanical survey. Once we had the results, we noticed her running technique and the muscular answer during this activity. Thus, we will try that Gisela will train thoroughly with her technique and will train adequately in order to avoid future lesions depending on the results achieved.
