). 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

acted as a virtual spring. The exoskeleton was able to provide assistance during stance and during swing, both in positive work and in negative work. The device did not output a torque or power metric, so it is not possible to determine how each individual user relied on the exoskeleton for negative or

motion capture system (Vicon Motion Systems, Denver, CO). Kinematic data were sampled at 100 Hz and low-pass filtered at 8 Hz. Virtual markers delineating the edges of the feet were used to calculate the ML base of support boundary during stance phase. A 12-segment whole-body model was created with the

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
