Analyse biomécanique du swing de golf

Abstract : Studying biomechanics aspects of sport movements is aiming at improving performance and reducing injury risk. Several studies have used biomechanics concepts to study golf swing. However, several methodological biases and the lack of consensus have driven to contradictions. Thus, the first objective of this thesis was to do an exhaustive literature review of the biomechanics applied to golf swing. The second objective was to establish an experimental protocol for studying golf swing. And the third objective was to develop models and analysis to study golf swing. This part was done by a musculoskeletal model developed with OpenSim software.34 golf players have been analyzed for this thesis. Those analyses tackled multiples aspects : geometries, kinematics, kinetics and energetics. Several criteria have been taken into account, some from golf swing analysis (e.g. X-factor), from movement analysis (e.g. articular kinetics) and some new ones such as motor moment and motor kinetic moment.Perspectives for transferring results to medical staff and coaches were proposed.
