patented hardware/software device for golf club fitting

A six-week project has turned into a two-year project (and counting), with the first prototype not functioning sufficiently and the second apparently just days away from being delivered when now I am told the developer has had a stroke. I am getting no further information about the prognosis of this individual that might now be incapable of continuing on a project that appears to be nearly completed sitting on his desk. It could be a total time and financial loss (I just do not know about that yet), but I can no longer wait to at least make some inquiries. I was hoping to at least consider bringing the prototype to the PGA Merchandise show in January but at the present time that possibility appears lost as well.

Briefly, the device is a 3-D sensor motion detector that attaches to a golf club, accurately gathers the 3-D golf club movement and position data with respect to time during golfer pre-swing movement (before a golf swing even begins), and further requires the proper software programming to determine any pre-swing rotation point locations (which most golfers will have) along the length of the golf club in the course of any given golfer's pre-swing movement. A determined rotation point location is then applied (in the form of a fulcrum location) on a discrete scale (also needed), which cumulatively results in a new golf club balancing specification named waggle weight (for those familiar enough with golf, this is an advancement of the already-long-proven golf club specification named swingweight).

This is all already patented, US # 8,074,495, my patent protection time is quickly dwindling away with two more years apparently lost now, and much of my remaining capital is possibly also gone due to the above situation. Perhaps I will get a call tomorrow saying this guy will (hopefully) be okay, but I can no longer wait before I at least try to make some additional inquiries for help toward either completing what has been done to this point (if possible) or, unfortunately, quickly developing another new prototype from scratch. I need to find one or more individuals with the qualifications, interest, available time, and potentially other attributes who might be a good match to advance this project as soon as possible. Thanks.

Hi, I saw your patent document, it seems rather interesting. First thing that comes to my mind is a IMU unit that will need to be placed on a golf club and that will give you club motion data. Now, regarding dat More
