USA Triathlon has formed a partnernership with RPM2, a Fort Worth manufacturer of computerized insoles designed to monitor the training elements of running and biking. Through 2017. RPM2 will serve as the exclusive footbed training partner for the National Governing Body of the sport. USA Triathlon annual members, as well as certified coaches and members of certified clubs, will receive a 10 percent discount as part of the agreement.

“Our revolutionary technology is aimed at making athletes better, stronger, and faster,” said CEO Johnny Ross. “Helping athletes achieve higher performance through bilateral equivalence is what RPM2 technology provides. Coaches and trainers already recognize that the more bilaterally equivalent the legs are, the better the athlete will perform. Now there is evaluative data in which to base these judgments.”

RPM2 technology specifically measures bi-lateral leg equivalence in athletes and examines the gait, range of motion and four-quadrant foot pressure of athletes. It is pre-set with five “range of motion” exercises, two “gait” exercises and two “pressure” exercises. The footbed and app also includes four cycling exercises that contain power meter measurements specifically geared for triathletes and speed cycling. MedHab LLC was founded in 2008 and is the parent company of RPM2 headquartered in Fort Worth, and a client company of TechFW .
