Tactilus® Golf sensor system

Professional golfers and instructors know that the distribution of weight and balance are key components of power in a swing. They realize that speed and power come from the lower body and not just the hands and the arms, but they lacked one vital tool to help them take action to shift their body weight. Now the balance of a golfer's feet as it goes through a swing can be revealed and quantified thanks to the Tactilus®. This technology gives suppliers of sports motion analysis systems, golf club manufacturers, instructors and others in the industry the tools they need to easily analyze these important swing dynamics.

Tactilus® Technology

Tactilus® is a matrix based tactile surface sensor. Essentially an "electronic skin" that records and interprets pressure distribution and magnitude between any two contacting or mating surfaces and assimilates that data collected into a powerful, yet user-friendly, Windows® based tool kit. Each Tactilus® sensor is carefully assembled to exacting tolerances and individually calibrated and serialized. Tactilus® employs sophisticated mathematical algorithms that intelligently separate signal from noise, and advanced electronic shielding techniques to maximize environmental immunity to noise, temperature and humidity. Our proprietary sensor design ensures the most robust sensor in the industry - an investment that will sustain thousands of uses.
