BioSport Technologies uses zenoLINK 3-D motion analysis technology to evaluate an athlete’s biomechanical performance.
The golf motion is captured on video and transformed into a three-dimensional anatomical representation of the golfer performing the golf swing.
BioSport Technologies uses ZenoLINK 3-D Motion Analysis technology to evaluate an athlete’s biomechanical performance. ZenoLINK is a diagnostic tool. The information allows in-depth insight into performance and injury potential at a biomechanics level. It is used to identify and pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in the athletic motion. The data is crucial to the development of effective training and skill development programs. It is also very effective in monitoring the progress of a training program by comparing performance data from one point in time to another.
BioSport Technologies utilizes ZenoLINK 3-D Motion Analysis technology. The technology is used as a diagnostic tool. It is used to identify strengths and weaknesses in the golfers motion. The data provides insight into how an individuals strength, flexibility and coordination affect performance and injury mechanics. We also use the AboutGolf simulator for ball flight tracking, practicing and playing different golf courses. The AboutGolf simulator has integrated video so as soon as you hit the ball you have the option to instantly replay your swing from multiple views.
zenoLINK golf swing analysis
BioSport Technologies collects biomechanical data on golfers using zenoLINK. The golf motion is first captured on video. The two-dimensional video is then sent to the zenoLINK processing center where it is transformed into the three-dimensional anatomical representation of the golfer performing the golf swing. The data is then accessed by bioSport in a graphical and numerical format that allows performance analysis and movement pattern evaluation.
The golf data/report is divided into four areas of analysis:
- Power Generation – Kinetic Link
Parameters include individual body segment speeds and their contribution to maximum club velocity.
- Stability – Platform for Accelerations
Parameters include the measurement of the coordination of various muscle groups and body segments as they act together to provide a stable platform for accelerations. Specific areas include lower body and trunk.
- Muscular Loading – Dynamic Stretching of Muscles
Parameters include the measurement of dynamic loading (stretch/shorten cycle) of the muscles and coordination between lower and upper body.
- Club Performance Outcome – The Measure of Efficiency
Parameters include linear club head speed and angular (release) speed of the shaft. Maximum values and percent of maximum at impact.
Golf Fitness Evaluation: The golfer will be taken through and in-depth evaluation of the golfer’s mobility, strength, coordination and balance. The golfer will receive a detailed report explaining all the tests and how he or she scored on the tests. A Golf Fitness Handicap will be assigned.
Golf Video Analysis: The golfer will go through a video motion analysis in our AboutGolf simulator. Key check points that will be addressed are posture, rotation, lateral motion, and balance.
Golf Fitness Training Session: The evaluation will largely direct what direction the training sessions will take. If the golfer has significant mobility issues then a large percentage of the session will focus on improving those aspects. The same will apply if there are significant strength or stability issues. As progress is made then the sessions will start to incorporate more fitness components.
Online Access to Exercises: The golfer will also have access to an online home exercise program that will help to speed up the progress. Usually 4 – 6 exercises are prescribed that will take about 15-20 minutes to complete.
