Warm welcome to the world's first mobile running coach: evalu

The ESA BIC Bavaria team and all of our startups welcome evalu. It is developing a virtual personal running coach, an app called evalu.run, used in combination with an ergonomic sensor.

There are many fitness apps out on the market for Android and iOS. evalu.run is the first running coach based on Artificial Intelligence (AI). The app is used in combination with an ergonomic sensor, which is a very thin and flexible sole, designed for running shoes and measuring the ground reaction forces to evaluate running style, technique as well as weaknesses and problems. Based on this parameters the coach provides personalised feedback in real time and advice. Thereby, evalu.run helps runners to improve their own running experience in a customised way. Runner-specific strength exercises are automatically integrated into the training schedule, in order to remove the weak points of the runner.

evalu is incubated at the ESA Business Incubation Centre Bavaria in Oberpfaffenhofen for one and a half years. Do you have a pioneering business idea and want to become part of the Europe-wide ESA BIC network? Then check out the ESA BIC Bavaria programme in more detail.
