Title
(EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR TRAINING WITH BIOFEEDBACK
(FR) APPAREIL ET TECHNIQUE D'ENTRAINEMENT PAR RETROACTION BIOLOGIQUE
Abstract
(EN)
Devices and methods for the assessment and biofeedback training of coordination skills of a subject critical to maximizing the power and accuracy of athletic ball-strike activities. In preferred embodiments, the invention provides for assessment and biofeedback training of weight bearing and center of gravity control under conditions requiring the athlete to strike a ball such that the distance and direction of flight trajectory of the ball are accurate relative to a performance goal. One embodiment of the invention includes a body movement sensor (11), a ball strike sensor (12), a display (14), and a computer (13). The body movement sensor (11) provides an output indicative of the motion of the subject's body (15) over a period of time including the moment of ball strike. The computer (13) causes the display (14) to show both a trajectory of the motion of the subject's body (15) and the moment of ball strike in relation to a region of the trajectory.

Appareils et techniques d'évaluation et d'apprentissage par rétroaction biologique de la coordination nécessaire à un sujet pour obtenir une puissance et une précision maximales lors de la frappe d'une balle au cours d'activités sportives. Dans ses versions privilégiées, l'invention permet l'évaluation et l'apprentissage par rétroaction biologique de la répartition du poids et de la maîtrise du centre de gravité lorsque le sportif doit frapper une balle de telle façon que la distance parcourue et la trajectoire empruntée par celle-ci soient précises par rapport à un objectif. Une variante de cette invention comporte un capteur de mouvements corporels (11), un capteur de frappe de balles (12), une unité d'affichage (14) et un ordinateur (13). Le capteur de mouvements corporels (11) indique les mouvements du corps du sujet (15) pendant une période incluant le moment où il frappe la balle. L'ordinateur (13) affiche sur l'unité d'affichage (14) la trajectoire suivie par le corps du sujet (15) en mouvement ainsi que le moment où il frappe la balle par rapport à une zone de cette trajectoire.
