Try the Bodi Trak Force Plate to Analyze Your Balance and Weight Distribution
Bodi Trak is one of the leading providers of force plates in the United States. Force plates have several sensors placed in a mat that allow people to measure their center of gravity, stance, and weight distribution while doing an action. These insights are becoming increasingly important for players to understand if they want to take their technique to the highest level, but application works for anyone needing to better understand stability while standing, range of motion, acceleration, and weight distribution during a task.

What is a Bodi Trak Force Plate?
The Bodi Trak Force Plate is a pressure analysis tool in the form of a highly portable mat. In this mat are several sensors that allow you to track all of the different ways that golfers generate pressure during their swing. It can track pressure from side-to-side, heel-to-toe, down-and-up. A common use for force plates is analyzing your golf swing. Since weight placement is crucial in a great golf swing, teaming up with the Bodi Trak certified trainers at Evolution can help you visualize improvements for every swing, be it a drive, a chip, or a putt.

What to Expect When Using BodiTrak System
When you come in for your appointment, you’ll be asked to stand on the force plate. Right away, you’ll start sending data to the Bodi Trak app for our physiotherapists to analyze. What you’ll do on the plate will depend on what goals you are seeking to accomplish. You might be asked to stand on the mat with a balance board or foam rollers underneath to gauge response. Others might be asked to toss a weighted ball in the air or perform a squat.
After data collection is done, you’ll be taken through what data has been collected and what it means. From here, you may be provided with adjustments to make to your movement, or have the data factored in as part of a general treatment plan. The BodiTrak system can be an effective tool supplementing biomechanical assessments with corrective exercise.
