The tune will help the runners know the symmetry between their left and right foot. As soon as it gathers the data, it delivers the result through the Smartphone app. All the data like the ground contact time of the foot as well as the heel force etc is synchronized with Bluetooth. There are some docking stations around the insoles which transfer the mentioned data.

After the workout or the run, the app will provide the users with complete statistics. It will show them the complete profile of their strength and weaknesses and tell the users where they are lacking and how to improve their running and so on. The users can also get their personalized exercise programs in the form of videos to see and imitate the kind of training they should do.
