Learn how to evaluate biomechanical data, such as kinematics (position, velocity, acceleration), as well as kinetics and advanced movement concepts (forces, torques, momentum and energy transfer).
Then apply this data to coaching programs with a simplified, individualized and optimized approach to making mechanical changes.
The Certified ArmCare Pitching Biomechanist Course provides a roadmap of how to:
- Adapt training to advance motor learning, and
- Protect the athlete from injury, and
- Select specific training exercises to improve four key factors; (1) Strength-Velocity Ratios, (2) Pitch Efficiency Ratios, (3) Biomechanical Efficiency Ratios, and (4) Stress-Shielding Ratios
About Ryan Crotin
PhD, CSCS, RSCC
Dr. Ryan Crotin is the Vice President of ArmCare.com focusing on global adoption of individualized training and assessment through a data-led approach. He also is the driving force behind ArmCareU and the ArmCare Elite community, being a comprehensive educational stream and network to advance baseball health and performance.
Ryan completed his PhD at the University at Buffalo studying fatigue-induced movement compensations in baseball pitchers.
His post-doctoral fellowship in the Department of Orthopedics at the University of Pennsylvania focused on joint function and biomechanics to determine potential causes of throwing injuries.
His latest position in MLB was Director of Performance Integration for the Los Angeles Angels overseeing strength and conditioning efforts and sport science to apply physiologic-based data to improve the way athletes are coached, receive clinical care, and scouting as it relates to athletic profiling for the amateur draft.
