FlightScope announces debut of FlightScope-BodiTrak pressure mat

ORLANDO, Fla. -- FlightScope, a world leader in the development and manufacturing of 3D Doppler ball tracking monitors, golf radars and launch monitors for sports, announces its newest product, the FlightScope-BodiTrak pressure mat. Made exclusively for the company's professional X2 unit, the FlightScope branded pressure mat will wirelessly capture and measure center balance during a golf swing allowing users to quickly modify their swing to maximize performance.

"Aligning ourselves with BodiTrak made sense for us as we look to increase the functionality of our X2 model," said Henri Johnson, founder and CEO of FlightScope. "BodiTrak's next generation technology compliments what we at FlightScope are trying to do, and will allow users to obtain unprecedented data with FlightScope software integration."

The pressure mat system is able to determine a golfer's balance pattern indoors, outdoors, uphill, downhill, on the putting green, and even in a sand trap. FlightScope has integrated the pressure data within the FlightScope PC software and FlightScope VX2 app, showing precisely where the pressure is on each foot during specific points during the club capture and collision phase. The pressure mat data is automatically synchronized with the golf swing. Golfers will be able to see their FlightScope data alongside their weight shift for the entire backswing and downswing, through impact.

"We're thrilled to partner with an innovator such as FlightScope on this endeavor," said Rob Golden, President of BodiTrak. "FlightScope has long been a major player in the golf technology space and we are proud to offer our products to their vast network of users."

The FlightScope-BodiTrak pressure mat will be launched at the PGA Merchandise Show. To find out more information call FlightScope Sales at 407-967-7121.
