Have you ever wondered about how to correctly use the ground in the golf swing? It’s crucial to maximising your power and strikes, and all of the world’s best do it.
Ground reaction forces are the forces exerted by the ground in movement, and when that translates to golf it essentially equals power. They’re a key part of biomechanics and determine how the pelvis is moving and therefore the start to the kinematic chain in a golf swing – what the feet are doing heavily impacts how the club is being delivered to the ball!
Lots of power is lost due to incorrect use of the ground and pressure in the golf swing, which is where BAL.ON comes in – as effective interaction with the ground is crucial to building an effective golf swing.
Relying on pressure sensors and AI, BAL.ON gives you real-time swing analysis and coaching by capturing information invisible to human eyes thanks to 18 sensors and your smartphone eying your every move
BAL.ON, which is the only high-class mobile solution for coaches and consumers to properly measure and visualise pressure, uses two sources of data: sensor data of the pressure soles as well as the video data you capture with your smartphone.
The highly sensitive Force Sensing Resistors (FSR) cause a change in electrical resistance when pressure is applied on them. Via the smart pods, this signal goes into the app.
The app monitors your pressure values and matches them with your video and audio sequences. It compares both with thousands of reference player data, among them many qualified pros. It spots where you differ from the ideal line – and it tips you off, how to improve palpably!
BAL.ON might sound like something for only the world’s best golfers, but in actual fact it’s a tool to help players of all skill levels. If you’re eager to improve your golf swing, not only on-course but especially on the driving range, you need to try it.
WHERE THE PRESSURE SHOULD BE IN YOUR GOLF SWING
50–60% pressure on your lead foot, 50–40% pressure on your trail foot, the magic formula for balance. Starting with the right pressure and weight distribution will improve your entire performance throughout the swing.
