Human Performance Optimization + Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention
Musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries have a ripple effect that extends to our mental health as well as morale. Learning how to move correctly (technique) and developing this skill is the most direct way to prevent and reduce musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries.
Musculoskeletal injury prevention and human performance optimization start with the development of a fundamental skill of movement (running, walking, rucking, etc).
“All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.”

At Pose Tech Corporation, founded in 2001 by an Olympic Coach, best-selling author, former Head of the Physical Education department Professor Nicholas Romanov, Ph.D., we are focused on musculoskeletal injury prevention and human performance optimization. At the core of our work lies a commitment to utilizing a high-level performance training through an innovative, scientific approach and education.
Running is a widely practiced form of exercise, both in sports and as a job requirement for the military and emergency services worldwide. However, as stated in published medical, health and military research, the high prevalence of running-related injuries is a critical concern for athletes, recreational enthusiasts and military personnel alike.
The direct and indirect costs related to running-related injuries in terms of medical bills, lost or limited duty, disability compensation, associated loss of productivity and time are staggering. While there is no single source of such information for civilian population, the internal research from the Army’s Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) shows that these injuries result in 10 million lost duty days and $577 million annually in medical care costs alone. It is also important to take into account an injury-related psychological distress suffered by the injured.
A running skill gap is the reason for the high injury rate. Learning running technique and developing this skill is the most direct way to prevent and reduce common running related injuries. With the increasing concern for human and financial costs of injuries, the need for skill development and education programs for athletes, military personnel, and the general population is more crucial than ever before.
It is time to recognize running-related injuries as a critical public health issue and take a proactive approach to prevent them. By raising awareness, encouraging skill development, and promoting proper form, we can help minimize the risk of injuries and allow individuals to enjoy the numerous health benefits of running without pain or long-term complications.
Pose Tech Corporation is a continuing education provider. We understand that there is a significant skills gap in many industries, and have identified the need for skill development in running technique acquisition as a key element in helping individuals achieve their goals.
We are committed to the development and delivery of innovative learning programs that transcend and bridge the gap between traditional learning and continued skill development.
The Pose Method Running skill training is available via ArmyIgnitED. This training supports the Department of Defense human performance programs initiative in the military.
The ArmyIgnitED program is an initiative designed to help soldiers achieve their career and education goals. With the ArmyIgnitED program, soldiers can gain valuable skills that will help them succeed now and also transition into civilian life after duty.
To do better, we must know better. Teaching & learning are the essential components of progress. We offer a distinct comprehensive certification program designed to create a high level of competency among health and fitness professionals.
Peak performance can be achieved. Full human potential can be revealed by teaching & practicing biomechanically correct technique, developing the skill of movement and perception of the individual.
