XGOLF simulator selected by Coast Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab

LOS ANGELES -- XGOLF, a world-renowned technologically-advanced golf simulator, club-fitting and instructional system, has been selected by Coast Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., for use with clients and patients. The facility has incorporated XGOLF into its therapeutic approach with its clientele. Even individuals who never have held a golf club before are realizing the benefits of XGOLF.

"While physical therapy is distinct from the entertainment functionality of XGOLF, advanced technology is an integral part of the modern PT field," said James Kim, CEO of XGOLF. "XGOLF's unique features are well suited to the PT application, and we are pleased to provide technology that enhances advances in this medical field."

The XPLATE is one XGOLF feature that physical therapists find especially useful and effective. It often is utilized with patients to help correct balance impairment.

About Coast Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab
Each member of the clinical staff at Coast Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab is licensed by the Physical Therapy Board of California, resulting in high-quality care. The facility, featuring state-of-the-art equipment and modalities, strives to give each patient individualized treatment based on personal rehabilitation goals.

"Many of our patients are being treated for flexibility and weakness impairments," said Dr. Martyne Beth Bonzo, PT, owner/director of Coast Physical Therapy & Sports Rehab and a BACKtoGOLF Certified Performance and Fitness Specialist. "The golf swing requires both flexibility and stability.

"This is why the XGOLF simulator is part of the ideal treatment regimen for our patients who play golf - and the ones who are interested in becoming golfers."

Dr. Bonzo does not give golf lessons. Rather, as a physical therapist, she analyzes the biomechanics of a patient and sets up a plan to improve the individual's ability to perform a golf swing or modify the swing based on physical impairments. XGOLF now is an integral part of the process, with motion-capture cameras and video-replay at the touch of a button providing swing analysis as it relates to each patient's impairment and capabilities.

About XGOLF
XGOLF's exclusive design, durability and cutting-edge technological features make it the most exceptional and innovative yet value-driven golf-simulator system. With unique features such as XPLATE (Variable Lie Positioning Plate) and XBALL (Intelligent Ball Teeing), the authenticity of XGOLF's simulated golf is unparalleled, replicating real shots on the screen and providing the most realistic golf experience possible. As a leading technology provider, XGOLF has as its main mission to listen and innovate based on customers' evolving needs and expectations.

The XPLATE Variable Lie Positioning System detects the ground slope and automatically adjusts the slope where a golfer stands to provide a more realistic experience. The slope also can be adjusted manually for practicing uphill, downhill and sidehill-lie shots.

The XBALL Intelligent Teeing System gathers the balls and puts one on the tee before every shot. During the game, it remembers each player's tee-height setting, so that it feels as though a personal caddy has set the ball in place. This feature saves precious time and allows the player to concentrate on the game.

Retailers, instructors, club fitters and avid individual golfers look to XGOLF to provide the most exciting and rewarding golf-simulation experience available anywhere.

The realism and beauty of the XGOLF playing experience is matched only by the accuracy and precision of its swing-analysis technology. Swing analysis, an integral and important aspect of the game, is easily accessible and highly accurate with XGOLF. Every caliber golfer, from tour player to occasional recreational player, can benefit from the unlimited game-improvement potential and opportunities XGOLF offers. And instructors worldwide count on XGOLF to deliver the finest analysis capability to enhance their teaching techniques and leverage cutting-edge technologies to help their students make precise swing adjustments for improved results. Through the use of strategically-placed numerous optical sensors, XGOLF tracks extensive swing data, providing detailed shot information, video analysis, weight-shift analysis and data analysis.
