Center of Pressure is the average of all the pressure points between your feet and the ground at any given point in time. Using the BodiTrak system, this is either captured on a ‘Static’ basis or presented during a golfer’s swing for ‘Live’ review.
To better understand COP, think in terms of the vertical forces which occur between someone’s foot and the ground. We are looking at the measurement of those forces, and how that changes over time (during a swing).
The current position of your COP will appear as a white dot at any given point during a captured golf swing. The White COP Dot will have a trace line attached to it, referred to as your COP Trace. The COP Trace can be reviewed in real time, by stopping the video at any particular point in a golfers swing.
By capturing data on both the X and Y axis you effectively now can begin to understand the correlation between Swing Path and Weight Distribution.
