I wonder if it is all that it claims to be. Someone try it and let us know. (I wonder if ten of us could go in on this for $10.00 each).

A little device strapped to your back can't actually measure the subtleties of form, particularly rotation/lateral flexion, which it can't really capture, or tell you the "why" (lots of deviations from the "norm" are protective and efficient in nature - see all the latest discussions of Bolt's form).  Also, anything that claims it can prevent injuries is lying, because, besides training errors, nothing has really been proven to cause injuries with running. We see patterns, but often those don't hold true in everyone (see the various running gaits in pro athletes).
