What is ZenoLink?
We are the undisputed leader in the field of functional biomechanics – the analysis of motion and the effects of forces relative to the human body and its movement. In other words, ZenoLink is a cutting-edge tool for the improvement of athletic performance. We develop and implement software applications for the measurement and analysis of motion in sports. Our data takes the guesswork out of identifying flaws or restrictions in functional movement. By zeroing in on what’s really happening during an individual’s sports activity, we assist athletes, coaches and trainers – primarily in golf, baseball, softball, tennis, lacrosse, cycling, running and volleyball – in their quest to achieve optimal performance and reduce the risk of injury.
How ZenoLink works
Our applications are designed for use with a 3-D motion capture platform and 3-D motion data.
The first step to ZenoLink is a brief video session with a certified ZenoLink partner (typically a sports trainer, coach or physical therapist) during which the athlete is taped as he/she performs their activity – hitting a golf ball or baseball, serving a tennis ball, firing a lacrosse shot, etc. The video is evaluated at the ZenoLink performance lab in Endicott, N.Y., using biomechanical measurements that include kinetic linking, joint range of motion, body segment coordination and outcome parameters.
The resulting analysis can be accessed here on our secure Web site. Also posted under each individual’s account are the prescribed drills to begin ZenoLink’s Progressive Skills Training program. Athletes are retested at prescribed intervals in order to evaluate progress and modify their PST program accordingly.
It is possible for athletes to videotape themselves or have a friend do it, but we encourage you to locate a certified ZenoLink partner from our nationwide network of coaches, trainers and therapists, thus ensuring that reliable data is collected. The Web platform enables athletes, coaches and trainers anywhere in the world to work together as they incorporate Progressive Skills Training into technique instruction and sport-specific strength and conditioning routines.
