Gears Golf Biomechanics

Perfect your swing and body mechanics for driving, putting, and everything in between.


Why Is Gears Golf Swing Biomechanics the Best Motion Capture Tool for Golf?

Gears is a golf motion analysis and body tracking system used by PGA pros, club fitters, and club manufacturers to measure and analyze every nuance of a swing. Experience your golf swing in slow motion capture, displayed in glorious 3D, from address to follow-through.

Built on the same technology used by biomechanists and filmmakers, Gears is the most advanced motion capture solution developed specifically for golf. Break down your golf swing step by step and discover the hidden biomechanics that are making or breaking your performance.

“This is perhaps some of the most sophisticated technology in golf right now that takes incredibly accurate measurements of a golfer’s swing and body position during the swing…Of all the golf instruction I’ve received in my lifetime, I’ve never seen any communicated as intelligently, accurately and quickly as this.”

What Makes Gears Golf Swing Motion Capture so Accurate?

Measurements, not Estimates

Most systems rely on low resolution approximations of swing data, with algorithmic estimates filling in the gaps. Gears provides hard stats that actually measure the entire swing as it unfolds.

Data. Lots of it.

Gears golf motion analysis records over 600 images per swing in less than a second. Because both the grip and head are tracked, that data provides significant insight into a swing, even including shaft deflection—information that cannot be obtained by tracking the grip alone.

Slow Motion Golf Swing Analysis & Optical Motion Tracking

Gears is an optical (camera-based) tracking system, powered by eight 1.7 megapixel cameras running at 360 frames per second. It offers numerous advantages over other approaches, including:

  • Tracking for any club, with snap-on club mounts
  • Measurements as fine as 0.2mm
  • No wires attached to the user Golf ball detection, for pinpoint impact location information
  • Simple system setup
  • “Absolute positioning,” with zero drift (unlike inertial systems)

Complete Club Data, in 3D

Gears offers golf swing biomechanics information with more detail and accuracy than any other tool on the market:

  • Full Swing Path
  • Impact Location
  • Clubhead Speed
  • Deflection Droop
  • Shaft Deflection
  • Face Heading
  • In/Out Path
  • Loft
  • Lie
  • Angle of Attack

Compare Different Players’ Golf Swings

Compare a user’s swing side-by-side with previously recorded data in fully rendered 3D—a powerful tool for measuring progress over time or comparing with proper techniques. Past and present golf biomechanics data are synchronized during playback, for frame-by-frame comparison of key swing elements.
