Explanar – The Appliance of Science


Explanar Golf has announced the results of an independent study by Dr Chris Bertram, Professor of Kinesiology and Director of the Human Performance Laboratory at University College of the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada which demonstrates that xplanar “positively and significantly impacts the golf swing”.

A summary of the report states “The results of our independent testing clearly demonstrate that Explanar positively and significantly impacts the golf swing. Explanar works by engaging the golfers own internal proprioceptive mechanisms in the complex process of learning – or learning to improve – this most complex of motor skills. As a training tool, Explanar is truly unique in its ability to allow the golfer to gain the kinaesthetic sense of what proper swing mechanics should feel like as opposed to other

popular training aids which rely heavily on providing feedback in abstract intellectual terms, or by merely pointing out swing flaws. By allowing the performer to experience first-hand the proper swing plane and its associated biomechanics, Explanar serves to expedite the nervous system’s transformation of swing thoughts into real and measurable improvements in the golf swing.”

Tony Clark, Managing Director at Explanar said: “Dr Bertram approached Explanar late last year requesting permission to include Explanar in his study. Naturally we were supportive and Dr Bertram’s independent findings are a vindication not only of our belief in Explanar but also of the choice of the PGA professionals across the world to incorporate Explanar in their teaching curriculum and of the amateurs that have purchased the Home System and seen such dramatic and positive improvements in their own game.

Dr Bertram added: “In general, the group that received kinaesthetic training using the Explanar showed significantly greater improvements in their swing characteristics as compared to the selfguided practice group. First, it was found that those using Explanar significantly improved their club head speed from their pre-test to their first post-test.

Furthermore, these improvements persisted during the second post-test following the ten minute break. Finally, and perhaps most notably, even greater average club head speeds were noted in the Explanar group when the participants returned one week later. Therefore, not only were the improvements in club speed sustained over a one week period, the participants actually continued to improve over the subsequent days.”
