Swing Catalyst, maker of the balance and pressure analysis plate, has appointed Optimum Golf Technologies as UK distributor. Swing Catalyst’s Balance Plate technology comprises more than 2,000 high-resolution pressure sensors, providing a range of data including detailed foot pressure analysis, accurate pressure distribution, real-time centre of pressure (CoP) mapping, and CoP patterns, none of which can be seen by the best-trained eye or even the highest-speed cameras.
For those wanting to take their understanding and analysis even further, the 3D Motion Plate provides all of the balance-plate data as well as horizontal and vertical force measurements, giving complete analysis of torque and ground forces generated during the golf swing.
Swing Catalyst is also integrating video analysis systems. Its latest studio software integrates all the major analysis technologies within the same piece of tuition software, allowing coaches to see, review, and save a student’s swing, launch monitor data, and balance plate data in a single video.
Swing Catalyst’s technology range can be integrated into any indoor swing studio, golf simulator or used on the practice range. Its state-of-the-art video analysis software is an ideal upgrade to existing studios or swing rooms, making use of the installed cameras whenever possible. Once installed, the full potential of its integrated systems can be unleashed, with real-time video, CoP and balance data, as well as launch-monitor numbers, all combined into one software platform.
Oliver Clark, operations director for Optimum Golf Technologies said, “It is exciting to see how many of the top coaches and players are now adding the Swing Catalyst 3D Motion Plate to their repertoire. It seems like many of the top coaches agree with us in that ground forces are of great importance to the golf swing. And the great thing about this technology is that it can be seamlessly integrated with all the major launch monitors on the market.” More at: www.swingcatalyst.eu
