Sports technologists at Diamond Kinetics today announced SwingTracker™, a sensor and accompanying mobile and web tools, providing quantitative analysis and mechanics diagnostics for performance improvement in baseball or softball.
Measuring 15 different swing metrics, including power and speed efficiency, SwingTracker is the most comprehensive swing measurement tool available. It is also the only device of its kind to sync video with key data points throughout the swing.
“SwingTracker takes the guesswork out of bat speed, hand speed and approach angle,” said Chris Sidick, Baseball Trainer/Instructor at C-Side Sports. “Now we can show a player exactly what they are doing during a swing.”
The product will be demonstrated at Booth #’s 75788/75790, Sands Convention Center at the 2015 International CES Conference opening today in Las Vegas.
SwingTracker PRODUCT: SwingTracker brings science-based motion analysis to the baseball/softball swing. The removable sensor attaches to the bat knob and collects 11,000 data points per second. It sends data via Bluetooth to the app.
The SwingTracker software provides data on scientifically driven motion and mechanics analysis, a 3D swing viewer, the ability to pair mobile video with swing data, and access to training features. It is the gateway to DiamondCLUB™, where players can work with coaches remotely. The SwingTracker App works on an iPhone 4 or above or an iPod touch (Gen 3 or above). Multiple accounts can be used with one sensor.
