specific movements of their technique. To say that there is a perfect model for pitching isa misnomer and should be viewed as such.There have been cases of longevity among pitchers and their pitching motions over theyears. Most of the case subjects have physically trained their bodies to accept specificamounts of stress at certain points of the kinetic chain sequence. The repetitivemovements specific to their motion are very consistent and maintain that consistencythroughout their career, thus decreasing the chance of mistake or injury. In this study weare examining the consistencies, durability potential, stress factors, kinetic chainsequences and overall injury parameters that would present potential injury or decreasedlongevity to the subject athlete, as compared between the Refined Conventional Motionand the Unconventional Marshall Pitching Motion.The study collected objective data utilizing 3D-motion tracking sensors strategicallyplaced on key body segments to extract biomechanical information necessary forcomparative analysis. This analysis was not designed to provide an indication of thesubject’s ability to perform a given task (though some insights about inherent ability weregained). Rather it is a measure of the relative efficiency of the ability of the two motionsto efficiently transfer energy from one body segment to the other and the fitness levelsneeded to perform each motion as demonstrated by the subject. All objective data wasobtained using the E-Factor motion capture system developed by JZZ Technologies, Inc.,systematized in part through analysis of elite athletes using data gathered from nine yearsof studies.Fitness levels (muscle strength relative to specific actions or motions) and relative idealsused in the study were derived from anatomically correct kinetic chaining sequences.Ideal sequencing was determined in part through longevity of the subjects from paststudies and from existing Torque Stand studies involving over 48,000 test cases. Usingintegrated system software, fitness levels were evaluated on the basis of the sum of muscle torques developed by main muscle groups under static conditions (ISI - isometricstrength indicator). Measurements were based in part on previous studies using anisometric muscle torque stand (local make), which enabled the direct measuring of torques for flexors and extensors of elbow, shoulder, knee and hip joints and flexors andextensors of trunk. Angle positions for all joints were 90 deg (with 180 deg meaning fullextension) with the exception of shoulder joint (45 deg). The stand enabled each group of muscles to be measured with simultaneous elimination of the influence of any otherforces on the result [Jaszczuk et al.1987].Kinematic anatomical sequencing was examined by recording and comparing MaximumRotational Speeds and Progressive Speed Gains for each major body segment, measuredin degrees per second. Directional speeds in the X, Y, and Z planes were measured. Handspeeds, relative tempo, posture at stance, posture at balance point, posture at hand break,posture at toe touch, posture at delivery and posture at finish were all derived from thedata. The biomechanical structures were analyzed and then mathematically assessed todetermine the efficiency of the two specific pitching motions.
