It’s swinging times for golfers. Ever since its launch at the 2009 PGA Merchandise show in Orlando, the Swing Catalyst has been creating a buzz. It has been developed by the Norwegian company Initial Force and is aimed at helping golfers improve their play, especially the swing.
Well, this machine is actually an analysis system that works towards integrating a force plate with a video analysis software and an optional launch monitor. Placed in a tee on an artificial turf, the force plate tries to give as real an experience as it can.
Your play is under constant supervision of the video cameras that record every motion and transfer the data to the monitor as well as the instructor’s workstation. All you have to do is simply stand on the force plate and swing like you always do while playing a game of golf. Also, the video clip can be replayed many times. You can even match the data from the force plate and the launch monitor. The technical bit apart, we think this will serve as a cool recreational facility at home.
