K-Vest and K-Trainer
Therapeutic Associates Physical Therapy at the Athletic Club of Bend is excited to announce that we now have a wireless 3D movement analysis system which we can use for a variety of instances in and out of the clinic. Chris Cooper PT, DPT, CSCS was recently certified in using the system with golfers to measure the kinematic sequence of the golf swing, as well as with golfers and non-golfers alike to help exercise effectively with real-time visual and auditory biofeedback. The system can be used supervised and eventually unsupervised to get the very most out of a therapeutic exercise session.
With K-TRAINER (a 2-sensor visual and auditory biofeedback system), golf, fitness, and medical professionals can quickly and easily re-educate motor patterns to improve performance. Customizable exercises, real-time biofeedback, and automated rep counters guide each client through a personalized training program that make K-TRAINER the preeminent system for movement re-education. This system dramatically improves trainer/client communication and ensures quality of motion while promoting total body awareness.
K-TRAINER’s comprehensive set of features incorporates every aspect of training, from functional assessments to stability and mobility fitness exercises, including sports-specific training programs. This system is ideal for any professional or athlete looking to be on the cutting edge of performance. K-VEST’s cutting-edge technology enables professionals to stay at the forefront of the very competitive golf performance industry.
The system’s user-friendly capture, analysis, and training software precisely measures swing efficiency and movement patterns. The real-time visual and auditory feedback helps clients monitor and track their progress over time.
TPI 3D Software – Developed by the Titleist Performance Institute, TPI 3D measures swing efficiency via the kinematic sequence and allows users to compare swing patterns to the world’s top PGA and LPGA players.
K-SWING Summary – Simple and automated 3D analysis provides user-friendly reporting, comparative PGA/LPGA averages, and one-click delivery of real-time training.
Video Analysis – Allows users to simultaneously capture 3D and video, which can be viewed in single capture or split screen mode with illustrative drawing tools.
Real-Time Feedback – Real-time visual and auditory biofeedback can be used to improve every aspect of the golf swing, including setup, backswing, top, and impact positions.
