Always keep your eyes on the target! When you shoot the basketball while using the DotShot, focus on the rim (or the backboard for bank shots), but “see and sense” the DotShot without looking at it directly. See the dots with your peripheral vision and sense the sleeve stimulating your arm. Practice with the DotShot and “train your brain” to be more aware of your arm before, during and after your shot.
DotShot technology is based on the scientific discovery of 'Proprioception' (prō-prē-ō-sĕp-shĕn) or the increased ability to sense body position and movement through stimulation.
The DotShot uses physical, visual and mental stimulation.
SEE. The DotShot improves your alignment and arc by helping you see (using your peripheral vision) your arm position and movement. The dots give you visual reference points to remind you to properly align your arm (see the dots in a straight line with elbow pointing down) and to shoot the ball with proper arc (see only the dot closest to your elbow after you shoot and hold your follow through). If you see all the Dots while you are still looking at your target then your shot the ball flat.
SENSE. The DotShot improves your awareness by helping you sense the compression sleeve on your arm. The DotShot stimulates your mind and body to better feel your shooting arm and shooting motion.
SCORE! The DotShot improves your accuracy by helping you practice with better shooting form.
