Once a swing has been captured, a certified professional can analyze and communicate your swing efficiency or "power signature" to you. In other words, the system analyzes the specific areas of your address, backswing or downswing that are holding you back.
The best part of the K-VEST experience is that your professional can then provide you with real-time visual and auditory feedback to reinforce correct movements. This feedback accelerates the learning process to get you playing better-in less time.
