  1. Click on “Calibrate” icon, left side of the screen.
  2. 1st step – Place the wrist flat and parallel to ground in front of you.
  3. Make sure wrist has zero flexion/extension and zero radial/ulnar deviation.
  4. Press button “It’s in position”.
  5. 2nd step – Move the wrist in extended position, not changing radial/ulnar deviation.
  6. Press button “It’s in position”. 

Step 3

  1. You are ready to go!
  2. Make a golf swing (must have impact vibration) and the sensor will automatically detect it.

Using "Immediate Feedback"

Immediate feedback is for position training and slow rehearsals.

It informs you real-time, if you are currently in your specified wrist position.

Step 1

  1. Click on “BioFeedback” icon, left side of the screen.
  2. Select “Immediate” BioFeedback option.

Step 2

  1. Turn BioFeedback mode “ON” by pressing the toggle button.

Step 3

  1. Select if you want to get feedback on “flexion/extension” or “ulnar/radial deviation”.

Step 4

  1. Select your desired wrist angle range in degrees.
  2. When your wrist angle is in this range you will hear audio feedback. When it is out of range, you will hear nothing.
  3. Make sure the selected range is reasonable number for range of wrist motion. For example, range from -5 degrees flexion to 5 degrees extension.

Step 5

  1. You are ready to go!
  2. Make sure your device’s audio output is turned on.
  3. Test your feedback range by moving wrist angle in and out of that range. Make sure your device’s audio output is on.

Using "After-Shot Feedback"

After-shot feedback is for full speed swings.

It gives you feedback after a swing, if you were in your specified wrist angle range during certain position.

Positive sound if you were within that range, negative if out of the range.

Step 1

  1. Click on “BioFeedback” icon, left side of the screen.
  2. Turn BioFeedback mode “ON” by pressing the toggle button.
  3. Select “After Shot” BioFeedback option.

Step 2

  1. Select if you want to get feedback on wrist “flexion/extension” or “ulnar/radial deviation”.

Step 3

  1. Select if after the shot you want to get feedback on wrist position at “address”, “top” or “impact”.

Step 4

  1. Select your desired wrist angle range in degrees.
  2. If during the shot your wrist angle was in this range you will hear positive audio feedback. If it was out of the range, you will hear negative audio feedback.
  3. Make sure the feedback range is a reasonable number. For example, initially try range from -5 degrees flexion to 5 degrees extension (total range 10 degrees).

Step 5

  1. You are ready to go!
  2. Make sure your device’s audio output is turned on.
  3. Test your feedback range by hitting a shot and see if your selected wrist angle was in or out of the range.
