6), according to terrain topography (Figure  1 ). The maximal difference in elevation was 24 m with a total climb of 38 m for the entire course. The time each skier spent in a section was calculated based on virtual split times. Speed for each section was calculated by dividing the length of a

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

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

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

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
