Leveraging Assessment Data to Build Throwing Programming

One of the greatest benefits our assessment provides is how it better informs our staff when developing and implementing throwing programming. It is one thing for an athlete to have all of his assessment data at his fingertips and to understand precisely what was uncovered. But it is another to actu...

How We Interpret Biomechanics Reports

In our previous biomechanics post, we looked at the data we had collected over the past six months. We looked at the averages of key metrics and what metrics correlate to velocity and torques on the arm. But we didn’t really look at how we interpret a biomechanics report for our athletes. When desig...

Improving Durability of Pitchers Using a Biomechanics Lab

A pro pitcher recently reached out to me to discuss our program and whether or not it was right for him. He was worried that due to his arm action – and history of injuries – that adding load via weighted baseballs and/or PlyoCare balls could make him more susceptible to injury. On the o...

Changing Shoulder Abduction

Integrating assessment data to help athletes is vital to what we do at Driveline. One piece of data that we occasionally see is pitchers with high elbow climbs. Today, we’re discussing what we see from a training-floor perspective and a biomechanical assessment. This will be a good example of how yo...

Pitching Assessments and Changing Mechanics

Over the past few months, we’ve been traveling around the country performing assessments on athletes with our mobile biomechanics lab. The lab is a crucial piece of our assessment process since the summer of 2017. The reason it’s so key to our process is the data it provides and how it combines with...

The Pitfalls of 2D “Biomechanical” Analysis

Everyone wants to do what they can to prevent baseball injuries. With the increase in different technologies (wearable technology and high-speed cameras) and decreases in prices, there has been a shift in what coaches and players can do to examine their performances. Of course, as helpful as this te...
