ORLANDO, Fla. -- FlightScope, a world leader in the development and manufacturing of 3D Doppler club and ball tracking monitors, golf radars and launch monitors for sports, is showcasing several of its latest innovations in golf technology this week at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show. During the show, FlightScope is demonstrating its new FocusBand integration and a new update to FlightScope's firmware that allows for a short distance setup.
FlightScope previously announced its partnership with FocusBand, a wearable, motion based, mind-sensing headset, in December 2015. FocusBand's brain sensing system trains the brain into a calmer state which is conducive for overall improved performance.
"When the state of mind and belief system are altered, the results can be extraordinary. We are incredibly excited to demonstrate this at the Show, giving players an even more advanced way to up their game than ever available before," said Henri Johnson, CEO of FlightScope. "This unique combination of technologies easily illustrates how users can perform to their fullest potential by better understanding the mind-body connection that is so important in the game of golf."
Through the integration of FocusBand, FlightScope users can track swing and shots while comparing their state of mind with real-time data and feedback beneficial for enhanced training. Attendees at the show are able to demo the combined technology for the first time.
"I believe FocusBand is the missing tool to understanding how a golfer's mental state and engagement when hitting the ball affects their game," said Andrew Park, Golf Digest Top 50 Instructor and FlightScope advisory board member. "With the FlightScope integration coaches and players now have access to a combination of extremely useful data that will push golfers to hit their full potential like never before."
At the show FlightScope is also introducing a new short distance setup as an update to its firmware and software settings. The short distance setup produces accurate data readings for users in a smaller amount of space. Previously, users needed at least 21 feet for accurate feedback. Now, users only need a total of 16 feet.
"For this year's show we really looked to create an immersive, hands-on experience for those attending, by bringing a new edge to our technologies that gives golfers and golf enthusiasts a chance to understand first-hand how our advanced technologies can improve their game," adds Johnson. "FlightScope continuously strives to bring the best and most cutting edge advancements in sports technology to the show each year and we are looking forward to seeing the response from industry leaders and players this week as we debut our latest innovations."
FlightScope is participating in the PGA Show Demo Day on January 26 on Tee #5. FlightScope is also hosting a FlightScope Academy at Demo Day. Following the demo day, attendees can continue to test and preview FlightScope's new products at the 2016 PGA Merchandise Show Exhibit Days on January 27-29 at booth #1173 and ETC bays 36-38.
