This fitting applies to all of the same criteria as the Basic but, adds another measuring assessment tool in the Dartfish 2d video analysis, as well as addresses foot and cleat alignment with more detail. This helps us properly and more accurately set up foot support and cleat positioning. This is important if you have current foot and/or knee pain or wish to try and prevent it.
