In XSENSOR Technology’s second ‘Plantar Pressure Mapping Applications for Performance & Rehab’ webinar, presenter Antonio Robustelli (Sports Performance Scientist & Technologist with OmniAthlete Performance Concept) explores, in detail, the concepts of evaluating weight shift movements in sports applications.
Weight shift (or weight transfer) is a fundamental athletic skill required in all activities where there is a need to hit an implement and/or throw a ball such as baseball, golf, or tennis. Being able to properly transfer body weight from one side of the body to the other is of paramount importance to generate the force and power required to accomplish this sport-specific skill.
Whether you are a Sports Biomechanist or Scientist, Exercise Physiologist, Physical Therapist, Strength & Conditioning Coach, or Athletic Trainer, this webinar will help you learn, understand, and experience how state-of-the-art pressure mapping technology can help you evaluate weight shift movements in sport.
