Comparing Flat Ground to Mound Elbow Torques

This summer we wanted to research one of the more commonly implemented ways to practice pitching: flatground work. Flatground work is often seen as a less stressful way to practice not only mechanics but also work on command and offspeed pitches. We wanted to investigate this while using the motus S...

How to Use the Motus Sleeve

We have been using the motusBASEBALL Sensor to great success over the last year, and it has been able to bring biomechanics measurement from the lab to the amatuer coach and player. Because of our success using the motusBASEBALL Sensor, we felt it would be helpful to provide some more information on...

Elbow Stress, Motus Sleeve, and Velocity

Explaining Elbow Stress and Torque When measuring elbow stress in biomechanic labs it is often peak stress that is being measured. This peak stress often occurs during what many researchers call the ‘arm cocking’ phase of the pitching motion. The arm cocking phase is found between front foot contact...
