Get a better running style by, er, getting electric shocks...

New Scientist article here newscientist.com
says some software that gives you an electric shock when landing on your heel is the Shiny New Thing for running technique

RunningInCirclesErr, yes... That seems like an idea. Definitely an idea.
But then so is duct taping a pebble in the heel of your shoe...
Not sure either is any better than the other
Or of course, you could just try running barefoot. Free feedback for heel striking straight away.... But it's hard to sell that as a product or monetise it

ChrisullNice quote from article "This is even though the jury is still out on exactly what the best running style is"
Ok maybe sort that first... (which is a whole million page thread in its own right).

RunningInCirclesIndeed, as iirc there is a rather large thread on running economy that encompasses gait in all its forms on here
But it's a _product_ so if they are going to sell it, it must be worth something right? Else why put it up for sale
