3D Swing Assessment PDF Print E-mail

Golf Works has been utilizing one of only a handful of golf-specific 3D motion analysis systems in New Zealand for the last four years. The K-Vest is wireless 3D motion capture system that uses inertial sensors located on your pelvis, upper body and hand to measure your body movements in real time during your golf swing.

Using the motion capture software platform TPI 3D, the K-Vest provides consistent and accurate analysis of the 3D motion of a golfers swing. Combined with video capture it produces a plethora of information about a client’s golf swing that is difficult to identify with video analysis alone. When the results are further combined with a golf-specific biomechanical assessment it becomes an extremely powerful tool to identify and help correct fundamental problems that can occur in a golf swing.  The information collected provides detailed information regarding the posture, the dynamic movement and the body sequencing and using TPI 3D can be quickly compared ‘to the world's best PGA, LPGA, and Champions Tour players’ (

A typical initial appointment is 90 minutes in duration and involves undertaking a golf-specific biomechanical assessment and 3D motion capture of the clients golf swing. An exercise programme is then recommended to correct the biomechanical faults that are identified in the assessment process. Whilst the data collected can be invaluable it is preferable to discuss the finding in detail with the clients’ coach to identify the best way to utilize the data without ‘over-complicating’ the swing for the client. For that reason it is recommended that the clients’ golf coach attend the session. Alternatively a K-Vest session can be arranged with the client and their coach at their normal coaching facility where practicable.
