Using data collected from 3D motion analysis systems, we can look at how golfers generate speed and transfer the speed or energy throughout their bodies. We have found the most efficient sequence of how they get this speed to the club head.
The amazing thing is that all great ball strikers have a remarkably similar sequence of generating speed and transferring speed throughout their bodies. That means if you compare Ernie Els’ sequence to Jim Furyks’ sequence, it’s hard to show a difference. That is a bold statement since there is an obvious difference on a video camera. All great ball strikers begin by generating speed from their lower body and transferring that speed through their torso into their arms and then into the club. What style they use to complete this signature is completely unique to each player.
K-Motion uses 4 small bluetooth sensors that are harnessed to the body in specific locations and track your motion in three degrees of freedom. That means it can measure your movement in three directions (side bend, forward bend and rotation).
K-VEST 3D Measures:
Alignment – Measures and displays static and dynamic alignments (degrees open/closed) of the hips, shoulders, and arms in relation to a target line.
Posture – Measures and displays static and dynamic postural alignments, including flexion/extension of the hips and right and left lateral bending of the spine.
Hip Rotation – Measures and displays hip rotation in the backswing/downswing.
Shoulder Rotation – Measures and displays shoulder rotation in the backswing/downswing.
Arm Rotation – Measures and displays the amount of arm rotation in the backswing/downswing. Kinetic Link – Measures and displays velocities of the hips, shoulders, and arms during the backswing/downswing.
Timing – Measures and displays timing and sequence relation of the hips, shoulders, and arms during the backswing and downswing.
