"With aG Balance Pro, it is now possible to specifically understand the impact of balance on the golfer's swing," says Chuck Winger, aboutGolf's Vice President of Performance Products. "For the first time, we can see force distribution on the front, back, right and left of each foot, helping us better assess the impact of balance on the golfer's performance and provide proper instruction."
aG Balance Pro, which features Perform Pro software, can be integrated with any 3Trak-powered aboutGolf ball tracking technology, including the aboutGolf simulator and aG Studio or used independently for world-class swing balance analysis and instruction.
aG Balance Pro's data is presented in easy-to-understand visual graphics, as well as detailed data tables to support scientific analysis. All swing/balance data is time stamped and synchronized to the swing motion from backswing to follow-through, including a clear indication of weight transfer and foot forces at the time of ball impact. The Perform Pro software also supports integration with the optional aG Flix module, providing time-synchronized swing video for analysis side-by-side with aG Balance Pro.
"aG Balance Pro is another tool in the instructor's arsenal," says Winger. "It enables definitive analysis of what is going on in a golfer's swing and the visual feedback to both instructor and student on progress and improvement."
Center of Balance (COB) for the feet, the body, or both simultaneously, is displayed in a top-view bar chart. Analysis graphs are available with a single click. Data is also displayed numerically in Imperial or metric units, or using percentages of weight force. aG Balance Pro utilizes foot tracking to track real-time footprints for a measurement on front/back and inside/outside force for each foot. Integration with 3Trak technology adds the measurement from the player to the ball and the ball's "stance position."
The aG Balance Pro measures all ground reaction forces and reports data on:
- Center of Balance for each foot
- Force magnitude in pounds and kilograms
- Sequenced left/right foot force distribution
- Sequenced front/back percent of distribution
- Sequenced foot tracking
- Player weight and percentage of weight
- Distance of player from ball
