force and angle of contact between virtual hand and ball influences the direction of the ball’s rebound, which signifies the role of cognition on action and thus, its influence on object-manipulation competence ( Rosenbaum, Chapman, Weigelt, Weiss, & van der We, 2012 ). As a whole, the omega

60-s time window. TtC = time-to-contact; CoP = foot center of pressure. TtC Calculation The TtC was calculated by determining a position vector of the CoP on a virtual trajectory for each moment in time ( t ) based on the instantaneous CoP position, velocity, and acceleration ( Haddad et al., 2006
