Bowling Analysis Software
Biomechanical analysis of technique is very useful for identifying and correcting problems with someone's bowling technique.
Bowling elements that can be measured and identified using video analysis include:
- Angle of release
- Release velocity
- Head and body position at release
- The arc of travel of the bowling ball
- Joint and segment angles
- Segment velocities
There are many video analysis software packages available for analyzing the technique of bowlers. There is a range of software with varying features, ranging in cost from freeware to very expensive. A few of these are described on the page about Biomechanical Video Analysis.
