Dartfish Motion Analysis  

Dartfish Motion Analysis software is a unique technology for biomechanical analysis. Specifically designed to measure the body in motion, Dartfish Motion Analysis provides detailed information about improper body mechanics, existing muscle imbalance and gait. This leading-edge technology gives athletic trainers and physical therapists the ability to detect issues that could interfere with overall performance. This feedback allows you to make immediate changes, on the spot, during training time. As a result, workouts are more efficient and individual athletic improvement may take less time.  

Dartfish can be used for golf swing, pitching, tennis swing and running analysis.  

This analysis also includes a functional movement screen designed to identify compensatory movement patterns that are indicative of increased injury risk and inefficient movement that causes reduced performance. 

Dartfish Analysis: Approximately 90 minutes and includes a home exercise program, video analysis, consultation and a functional movement screen. This also includes a follow-up visit of approximately 30 minutes.

Performance enhancement (One-on-one or group training sessions available) 

This program is individually designed to help you improve speed, agility and power specific to your sport. Athletes today need a competitive edge to stand out and compete at the next level.

Golf Performance Academy  

Are there areas in your golf game that limit your success on the course? As a golfer, it is easy to neglect the most important part of the sport — your own body. Physical limitations in a golfer’s body can adversely affect the golf swing and lead to injury.

At Northwestern Medicine, our desire is to keep you healthy and out on the course. Our Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certified professional can help identify physical limitations through a golf-specific functional screening. 

With the help of K-Vest 3-D and Dartfish Motion Analysis software — technology designed for biomechanical analysis — we can isolate and identify physical limitations that may be causing inefficiencies in your swing and help you master simple solutions to get power back in your golf game.

  • TPI Certified Movement Evaluation – To achieve a safe and efficient swing, a golfer must first be screened. This screening includes an assessment of swing mechanics and biomechanics, movement quality, physical fitness and client history. The screening is designed to identify areas of dysfunction in the body-swing connection that can ultimately lead to injury. The TPI certified professional will then provide you with the results of the screening and a home program to begin correcting your movement dysfunction. This session takes approximately 60 minutes and includes an evaluation, home exercise program and consultation. 
  • Biomechanical Golf Evaluation – Understand how your movement patterns directly affect your swing by having a TPI certified professional perform a movement screening and a Dartfish Swing Recording. Our professional may utilize K-Vest 3-D technology as needed in conjunction with Dartfish Motion Analysis to break down your body-swing connection. With the results of the screening, 2-D swing capture and 3-D movement analysis, the TPI certified professional will create an individualized home program to maximize your performance. The session takes 90 to 120 minutes. 
  • Golf Functional Movement Assessment – K-Motion Screen – If injury or pain is hindering your performance on the course, you can’t afford to ignore it. Our TPI certified professional is trained to navigate the complexity of golf-specific injuries using a detailed screening process. The screening will be able to pinpoint the exact cause of your musculoskeletal dysfunction and identify injury-inducing swing mechanics contributing to your pain. After the screening process, the TPI professional will be able to provide solutions, through golf-specific rehabilitation, to help get you healthy and back on the course. This session will be approximately 90 minutes and includes a selective functional movement assessment, Dartfish Video Analysis and a home exercise program.
  • Golf Fitness Training – Spanning from the average golfer to the competitive golfer, this program caters to those who desire increased strength, speed, mobility and stability in their game. You will be screened by a TPI certified professional using K-Vest 3-D and Dartfish Motion Analysis, and then prescribed an individualized golf-specific strength and mobility program. Exercises are aimed at getting you fit to play the game at your highest level, without causing injury. One-on-one training is provided with the TPI certified professional to maximize your results. Sessions are approximately 60 minutes.
