However, there is no concurrent real-time data collection and DFA feedback mechanism. We aimed to verify a running analysis system for production of real-time DFA ¿ values. Data were collected utilising an accelerometer, attached to the tibia. The accelerometer data were transmitted to MATLAB for processing. Results demonstrated DFA ¿ value output < 2 seconds post individual running Epochs, and < 5 seconds post run completion. Our running analysis system provides rapid advanced variability information, important in both training, and injury prevention.
