GUIDED KNOWLEDGE TO PREVIEW THE NEXT GENERATION OF WEARABLES AT THE 66th PGA MERCHANDISE SHOW
Taking 3D Technology From The Lab To The Range
(GOSPORT, United Kingdom) – Guided Knowledge (GK) will debut its state-of-art technology at the 66th PGA Merchandise Show, Jan. 22-25, 2019, in Orlando, Fla. in the Inventor’s Spotlight Forum at Booth #3595. GK is pioneering technologies that can see you in action, assess your performance and provide real-time feedback via digital coaching tools.
For the first time, elite golfers and their coaches have access to a brand new view of the player’s unique swing signature. With GK technology, they now can collaborate anytime, anywhere, in-person or remotely, using state-of-the-art 3D technology to determine performance objectives, understand skill development trajectory and set tasks to improve outcomes while maintaining current performance levels.
“We are focused on developing the next generation of wearables designed to make 3D technology mobile and accessible. Our first product provides elite golfers and their coaches an invaluable competitive advantage by delivering an unprecedented 360-degree view of their swing signature. They now have the power to capture, dissect and analyze every shot, anytime, anywhere,” says Kevin West. “We are excited to be able to offer the golf industry a ‘first look’ at the PGA Merchandise Show.”
GK’s patent-pending technology includes the GK Smart Suit, a base layer garment embedded with 18-sensors that can measure speed, angle and direction at a rate of 1K samples per second. This enables the GK Motion System to capture users’ biomechanical movement patterns in extreme detail and with unparalleled accuracy. The motion data is transmitted to the GK Pod and processed using a series of complex algorithms to analyze and understand the user’s performance. The GK App provides performance feedback via a customizable metrics dashboard as well as a sophisticated 3D avatar with a 360-degree view. The performance data is stored in the Cloud, which allows users to access and/or share the feedback anytime, anywhere across devices.
GK’s first product caters to elite golfers and their coaches. However, the technology can be applied to numerous sports like running, tennis, baseball and skiing as well as other categories like health, wellness, workplace, performing arts and others. GK is scheduled to launch its golf product in Q1 2019.
