Bionic Runner is the world’s only high intensity, non-impact, running-specific trainer.

Bionic Runner is the world’s only high intensity, non-impact, running-specific trainer.

What is the Bionic Runner? It is a non-impact cross-trainer most have never heard of but those that train with it are setting Masters aged world records when many older athletes either taper down their run mileage or stop running all together. The Sports Techie community blog chatted from Atlanta to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia, via Skype with Steve Cranitch, founder of Run4, the sports tech company that invented the game-changing outdoor bike. The Bionic Runner is different than an elliptical trainer because it closely mimics the natural gait and timing of running...

Halo Sport Is The First Neurotechnology Of Its Kind Designed For Athletes

Halo Neuroscience developed a new neuropriming headset because neurostimulation is the next area of focus with sport and technology. The Sports Techie community blog chatted with CEO and Founder, Daniel Chao, about their revolutionary tech invention, Halo Sport.

I was able to look at preliminary data on the benefits of using the product...

Is Your Child’s Brain Safe Playing Contact Sports?

The Sports Techie community blog has reported about the dangers of concussions in most all sports since I launched our sports technology business four years ago, but the alarming audacity by sports leagues, associations and federations to cover up the facts when it comes to the concussion dangers present to youth in sport has gone on long enough for me not to stand up against this sad cover up.

Sports Helmets: The Science Behind The Safety

Football is a dangerous sport, and participation rates among young players indicate concerned parents are taking notice.

Some kids are simply focusing on one sport. But Dr. Julian Bailes, Pop Warner’s chief medical officer, told ESPN that head injuries and their link to mental illness later in life have caused the popularity of all contact sports to suffer...
