An instrumented grip handle was designed to simultaneously measure the forces and moments exerted by each hand on the handle during golf swing. Eleven pairs of strain gages were attached on the surface of an aluminum bar inserted under separated grip covers. The device was calibrated under static conditions and revealed good agreement between applied and calculated loads. The output of the sensors was converted into forces and moments by resolving static equilibrium equations. A professional… CONTINUE READING
