  • Summary of response -Weight transfer of striking activities

    DEAR FELLOW SUBSCRIBERs,
    I posted a request for literatures on weight transfer for
    striking activities on the 28th July. I have received some very
    helpful responses as well as indications of interest in this
    area.
    I like to thank the kind biomechanists that responded.

    I must apologise for the delay. But for some reasons unknown to
    us we were drop from the list.( In fact, I think our whole
    dept.in NTU,Singapore was cut off.)

    The following are the responses:


    I have just completed a rather large study of 20 golfers using
    high speed 3D motion analysis and force plate measures. I'll be
    presenting some of the data at the ASB conference in Columbus in
    October. If your friend would like more info, get him to contact
    me and
    I'll do the best that I can.

    Cheers,

    Rob

    Dear John Tan

    Two useful sources of reference are:-

    1. Proceedings of 1st World Scientific Congress of Golf, Univ of
    St Andrews, Scotland 9-13 july 1990 ISBN 0 419 15 130 3

    2. Proceedings of 2nd world congress of Golf, Univ of St Andrews
    Scotland 4-8 July 1994. (Sorry ISBN number at home)

    Both are published by E & F N SPON (imprint of Chapman Hall),
    London



    John -

    I saw a posting on the biomechanics mailing list concerning
    weight transfer
    during activities such as golf. I am not working in this field
    but, as an avid golfer,
    I subscribe to Golf Digest magazine. I recall sometime in the
    past year (I think)
    that they had an interesting article about exactly this
    subject. They placed a
    dynamic pressure sensor under each foot and asked people to make
    a normal
    swing. They compared the weight transfer of professionals, low
    handicappers,
    and high handicappers. I found it quite interesting. If you
    would like to know
    exactly which issue it was in, I save my back issues and could
    probably dig it out
    for you.

    Bruce mason published a paper on weight transfer during the
    baseball swing.
    It was in Biomech X, the proceedings of the ISB conference held
    June, 1985
    in Umea, Sweden.

    They contain some 150 papers 25% of which are devoted to weight
    transfer.
