Biomechanical Analysis

Q Golf provides biomechanical analysis through which the key aspects of technical performance, technical and physical correlates, and cause-and-effect relationships can be established. It is important to measure these aspects and evaluate the implications they may have for subsequent coaching input and training programs to assist players develop consistent and repeatable movement patterns.

3-D motion analysis provides a quantitative evaluation of co-ordination and timing, swing dynamics, injury risk, dynamic postural control and range of motion, and swing consistency. From this, physical capabilities can be identified so that appropriate technical direction and intervention strategies can be implemented, helping players develop an efficient technique that places the body at minimal risk of injury.

Postural awareness, flexibility exercises, biofeedback, and golf-specific exercise drills are introduced to complement a player’s coaching program to aid technical development and the learning of new “feels” associated with swing changes. Through such programs, learning is optimised, together with improved body awareness and an understanding of why certain drills or exercises are most appropriate to achieve desired movement patterns.
