Optimize Your Swing Efficiency To Maximize Ball Exit Velocity – Measure Both With The RADAR TEE™
RADAR TEE™ Benefits/Purpose
- Maximize your ball exit velocity by optimizing your swing speed and efficient energy transfer to the ball
- Train to hit hard line drives
- Develop bat control and directivity to hit balls into the gaps
- Swing in an optimum plane for best hard contact probability
Sports Sensors is pleased to announce the launch of its newest developed product – The RADAR TEE™.
The RADAR TEE™ is a powerful training aid that measures a hitters swing speed, the resulting ball exit velocity and the conversion efficiency of the swing to produce ball exit velocity. It is also unique in being adjustable to the swing plane of the hitter.
The RADAR TEE™ is the first known batting tee instrumented with electronic sensors, for which a patent has been awarded. The specific RADAR TEE™ embodiment includes two microwave Doppler radars, one of which measures the batter’s Swing Speed (SS) and the second measures Ball Exit Velocity (BEV). The ratio of BEV to SS is a measure of the batter’s swing efficiency in converting Swing Speed into Ball Exit Velocity. This Conversion Factor (CF), along with the SS and BEV for each swing, are displayed on a nearby tablet or smart phone via Bluetooth® technology.
Another unique feature of the RADAR TEE™ is it’s angle adjustability by which it can be set to the swing plane angle of the batter. Typical swing plane angles of high school, college and professional players are about 8-10 degrees, whereas youth players will experience lower angles and home run hitters will swing at much steeper swing planes.
The RADAR TEE ™ was successfully demonstrated at the American Baseball Coaches Association Show in January, 2016 where it received a “Best of Show” award. Extensive testing has been performed to assure ruggedness to withstand high speed hits by balls and bats. The accuracy of both radars has been clearly proven. It has been demonstrated to be “right on” with the exit velocity measurements of the outstanding Hit Trax simulation/training system. Initial RADAR TEE™ production has commenced for availability in the Fall of 2017.
