ThrowBetter Pitching is Teaming Up with SMBA!

  Throwing is an essential skill. Apart from being a fundamental movement in various sports, it is one of the basic activities of life. We created a simple tool that teaches anyone how to throw better, because the benefits will carry on long after the ball hits its target.   Our product works to teach the correct motion, no matter what is being thrown.

UCLA / MLB Pitching Analysis

Help Prevent Injuries!

image80

The SMBA academy has  partnered with the UCLA Orthopedic clinic on  a study they are doing for MLB. Much of their research has shown that youth players have weaker core muscles and this puts increased vagus strain on the elbow and subsequently the shoulder leading to injury. Their study is simply looking at these parameters at two time points and separating out the players in to two groups. They will undergo motion capture analysis before the program and 6-8 weeks after the program. 

MLB Youth Pitching Study

image81

Higher velocity comes higher force and strain that is put on the arm, specifically the UCL. And a lot of times, these hard throwers don’t have the best mechanics. Having improper mechanics will put strain on the arm no matter how hard the player throws. It just puts extra strain on the arm when the player throws at a high velocity. Dating back to as recent as 2003, there was 0% of pitchers that had an average fastball of over 96-mph. In 2014, there was about 5% of pitchers that averaged over a 96-mph fastball. 

Who are the Doctors

 Dr. Neal ElAttrache (Head LA Dodgers Team Physician) and Dr. Brian Schulz (Head LA Angles Team Physician) are the principal investigators on the study.
