(PRWEB) February 10, 2006
Body Balance for Performance, the nation’s largest chain of centers offering complete golf fitness and training programs, has announced their partnership with iClub, an innovator in wireless motion capture that has created a state-of-the-art system to capture and analyze a golf swing in 3D.
"With the Body Motion System, the physical restrictions we see during the Body Balance initial golf fitness evaluation are translated to golf swing problems. It lends validity to the findings of our physical evaluation," said David Ostrow, CEO of Body Balance for Performance. "This tool gives immediate visual feedback to the client while he is training."
The Body Motion System provides state-of-the-art biomechanics analysis. It quantifies--in degrees--shoulder rotation, hip rotation, and how well the spine angle is maintained throughout the golf swing. iClub sensors send this data wirelessly to a personal computer where artificial intelligence converts the information into a 3D view of the person in motion.
"iClub has created the world’s most advanced body motion capture system. This is a wonderful assessment tool that fits perfectly with our golf fitness training and therapeutic treatment programs," said Ostrow. "The BMS is the final piece to our Body Balance for Performance system. With it we have the ability to customize golf fitness training programs even further for our clients, at a level never before imaginable."
"Body Balance leads the nation in golf fitness and physical therapy related to golf. We’re happy to be working with David and Body Balance to further help their clients achieve their potential," said Satayan Mahajan, CEO of iClub. "iClub technology truly represents the future of golf in its ability to quickly improve power, distance, and enjoyment of the game. The partnership with Body Balance is a tremendous step in this direction."
Due to heavy demand from customers, Body Balance is reselling the BMS to golfers who have expressed a strong desire to track their performance for rapid improvement. Rollout of iClub’s Body Motion System (BMS) to Body Balance’s 48 nationwide golf fitness centers will begin this month.
