From our biomechanical testing, we found that the best location for our third sensor was on the hand. We also found that gripping the club differently skewed results, and having to move the sensor every time a different club was used hindered the full K-VEST experience. Our feedback from the hand sensor has been extremely positive.
- The K-VEST technology is fully wireless
- The K-VEST’s 3 sensors work within the same software program, simultaneously
- The K-VEST displays live video and animation in the same screen for an ideal training environment
- The K-VEST hand sensor is worn on the hand, so you don’t have to move it when you change clubs
- The K-VEST is backed by the TPI 3D engine and includes the TPI 3D software with every install
- The K-VEST sensors are lightweight and small enough to have minimal effect on the golfer’s natural swing
- The K-VEST product is affordable and has a quick return on investment
Our weekly online webinars have been created to offer free K-VEST education to our customers.

You can immediately use most aspects of the software, including video analysis, the K-SWING Summary, and real-time biofeedback training. This makes the transition very simple from video to 3D wireless technology, while offering significant instructional advantages to you and your students. As you learn more about the analysis engine, you can harness the power of the TPI 3D engine and its reporting capabilities.
We have a domestic and international team of golf, medical and fitness educators that provide our online certification programs. This team, which has over 50 years of 3D and 6D experience, works directly with the K-VEST advisory board to keep our educational programs evolving and always improving.
Yes – our brand new K-VEST Level 3 Certification Program is specifically designed to provide information pertaining to motion analysis in six degrees of freedom. This online educational program will include best practices for 6D swing analysis and specific biofeedback training programs for lift, sway and thrust.
Sensors are placed on the pelvis, upper body and lead hand. This is the exact same set up as the 3D system.
The 6D system provides the user the ability to digitize bony landmarks to make the calibration process more specific to that player’s body. We use 14 digitizing points to ensure we are accurately marking the pelvis, thorax and lead hand.
One of the primary differences between 3D and 6D is the technology being used. Our 3D solution uses inertial sensors, while the 6D system uses electromagnetic sensors. Both technologies use our K-VEST Unleashed software platform that provides the most intuitive 3D and 6D analysis in the industry.
Yes. The K-PLAYER’s customizable exercises and automatic rep counter allow you to create exercise programs that guide your client from one exercise to exercise the next.
The K-PLAYER is designed for anyone that wants to improve his or her clients’ movement patterns through proper feedback and real-time feedback. It’s ideal for therapists, trainers, and fitness professionals looking for an efficient method to reeducate a client’s motion.

- 97110 – Therapeutic Procedure
- 97112 – Neuromuscular reeducation
- 90901 – Biofeedback
The K-VEST is designed to capture, analyze, and provide feedback for golf swings. However, the K-PLAYER is primarily used for biofeedback and training. The K-PLAYER can be used to train and reeducate practically any movement pattern of the upper body and pelvis. Its rich set of biofeedback tools included core stability/mobility exercises, functional movement assessments, and fitness drills to name a few.
