Provides a background of biomechanics as well as technology use in golf and other sports
Explains how 3D systems work. It covers both optical and electromagnetic 3D motion analysis systems as well as force plates.
Shows how 3D systems are used and how 3D models of a golfer are created. It covers system set up and shows what the golfer experience is like during an assessment or instructional session. In this section, you will get to meet the golfers that we will follow throughout the course.
Shows how 3D systems can be used for visual assessment as well as interaction with the golfer. The section also provides insight on how to make 2D video assessment more accurate and reliable. As a part of this section, you will be able to download the GEARS software and sample swings.
Covers the fundamental 3D movement and force patterns in the golf swing. Emphasis is given to what patterns are important and why. As part of this section, you will get to download Visual 3D and the 3D report of one of our golfers. You will be able to view his swing, his 3D report, and perform your own assessment.
Finally, this section emphasizes the interaction options for 3D in a lesson. You’ll get to see a 3D assessment as well as a biofeedback session with a golfer using the Golf BioDynamics system.
