Research & Development
- During the R & D process, our team of PGA professionals and foot/ankle specialists examined the biomechanics of the entire golf swing. The team focused on the fundamental roles of the feet, ankles knees and back during this process. We studied hundreds of average golfers, as well as learning the lower core fundamentals of the top golfers of the modern era.
- Thorough research proved that accomplished players give themselves more time to negotiate the swing transition when compared to amateur players. The amateurs are generally too fast throught the swing with errant timing.
- Our data showed the key to effortless speed relies on better footwork. Our thought process naturally went to creating an orthotic that could help golfers position their weight better to promote the engagement of the muscles in their ankles, thighs and hips, resulting in a much-improved technique.
- After creating The OrthoGolfer Elite®, we rigorously tested the device using Boditrak Sports. Boditrak Sports is an innovative tech leader of measures of biomechanical measurements in the sports world. Boditrak’s pressure sensor mats are a preferred tool of PGA instructors in measuring a player’s interaction with the ground.
