contact point was in the contact zone, a set of virtual muscles were included to represent the reaction forces. 26 The glenohumeral joint (shoulder joint) was modeled as a spherical joint (3 rotational degrees of freedom) between the humerus and scapula ( wiki.anyscript.org ). The only ligament included

potentially benefit the accuracy of the throwing action is expected to be nonlinear and specific to the location of the basket with respect to the subject. At earlier phases of the throwing movement, to study such covariation, one has to assume a “virtual basket” moving in time, but its location (trajectory

Similarly, a study on soccer players concluded that cutting in response to virtual defensive players triggered distinct lower limb postures and knee moments. 38 In basketball games, the cutting maneuver is also often accompanied by ball dribbling. Cutting with dribbling

feedback. 15 Konings et al 16 reported that when riding against a virtual opponent, time to complete 4-km cycling times trials improved compared with no opponent due to a faster pace at the start of the time trial. It has been suggested that this change in pacing behavior is influenced through

Following placement of all the anatomical and technical markers, the participant was asked to stand on the treadmill for a static trial. Standing position was controlled using a graphic

Golfers were asked to hit straight shots (ie, so the ball landed as close to the center line of the virtual driving range that the launch monitor provided) using their own 6-iron club and the Titleist golf balls provided (DT Solo; Titleist, Fairhaven, MA). All shots were made from an artificial grass mat
