Computed Muscle Control Analysis of Pitching Mechanics

Continuing with our validation of a Forward Dynamic analysis of the pitching motion from last week (Part One), we had run through the initial stages of the simulation pipeline to have an accurately scaled model that is tracking the recorded kinematic motion and associated force plate kinetics closel...

Forward Dynamic Simulations of Pitching Mechanics

Previously at Driveline Baseball, we featured an exciting and informative three part series by Dr. James Buffi on his work toward an innovative new training and elbow injury prevention approach that has the potential to better protect a pitcher’s weak link- the UCL (Part One). While traditional meth...

Analyzing Lower Half Pitching Mechanics Using Force Plates

What We Currently Know About the Lower Half Essentially, nothing. There are studies which have linked lower half force production to ball velocity, and other studies which show very little correlation between the two. One study noted particularly strong correlations between force production and wris...
