Biomechanist Bartold wins top award
Published: July 9, 2009
Bartold (pictured, standing, with Mark Docherty, second left) and his team have been working on gender differences which has led to the development of Gender Specific Cushioning, specifically for women to counter changing levels of support needed by women’s feet during the ovulation cycle.
The enhanced gender technology will be introduced in the top line women’s running shoe, Asics Gel Kayano 16, to be released in January.
Bartold says “This award is presented by the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine on an infrequent basis, and only when they feel someone has made a unique and outstanding contribution to biomechanics and sports medicine.
“For ASICS this is very good news, and tells us our research is being accepted as of a very high standard. For me, this is a very great personal honour, since it is the first time ever it has been awarded to anyone outside the USA.”
Sydney-based Senior Manager Product Marketing, Footwear Mark Doherty reports the award will be presented at the academy gathering in Toronto later this month.
