There are so many benefits to the unrestricted rotational component to Core-Tex, especially for rotational athletes. But one application often overlooked is the influence the motion of Core-Tex will have on a ground-based limb.
This demo uses the basic mechanics of a golf swing to highlight how the athlete can promote improved hip rotation on the fixed leg. Core-Tex guides the movement on the ground based leg by rotating with the contralateral limb in contact with Core-Tex.
This single subject study was a first to look at individual muscle responses along with acceleration of the Core-Tex platform. Our long-term research goals are to validate the mechanisms and benefit to reactive training and reactive variability.
We would like to thank the team at AKI Movement Lab in Santa Barbara for their work on this project.
We've gotten so many questions and interests in how the new Core-Tex RT is different from the original Core-Tex. Well, this video will show you some of the key changes. Don't worry, though-the patented motion remains the same!
