Golf Goes Digital
If you're ever played golf (or attempted to and failed), you know the the slightest thing being wrong with your swing can cause you to slice the ball off many yards away from your intended target. An important part of a golf swing is the way the golfer grips the club, and if one's grip is wrong the ball will not go where they want it to. Fortunately for people with bad golf grips, Sensosolutions recently announced that the SensoGlove, the world's first digital golf glove, is ready for online distribution in the U.S., Japan, Scandinavia, Spain, Korea, Germany, Australia, and New Zealand.
Using built-in digital sensors, the Sensoglove analyzes the pressure of a golfer's swing before giving the user real-time audio and visual feedback up to 80 times per second to warn you if you have exceeded your target level of grip pressure. It is detailed enough that it can even show you which of your fingers are gripping too tightly. David Bauer, President of Sensosolutions, said of the glove, “instinctively, people try to grip the club harder when they have trouble hitting the ball properly, creating a ‘death grip,' with excessive tension in the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders, crippling the swing. SensoGlove stops the ‘death grip' by telling you when you are gripping too hard and when it's just right.”
SensoGlove is available immediately online at www.sensoglove.com and around the world for men and women, whether lefty or righty. Sizes range from small to extra large, with the Sensoglove priced at $89 (replacement gloves are available for $25). In addition, digital monitor can be removed to use SensoGlove as a regular golf glove.
