Using Kinematic Analysis to Identify Loci of Improvement During Functional Motor Skill Training

Improvement in the efficiency, accuracy, and timeliness of a functional motor task likely correlates to an improvement in related motions of daily life (Winstein and Stewart, 2006). The functional motor task performed in this study mimics the daily living activity of feeding oneself, such that in the task, participants scoop two beans from a “home” cup and sequentially reach to dispense the beans into three “target” cups as quickly as possible without dropping beans. Task performance is divided into two phases based on the 3D position of the spoon: gross motor phase during object transport, and fine motor phase during object acquisition (Hooyman et al., 2021). Future implications of this research include analyzing kinematic data from these two motor phases separately from one another to see if either only one or both phases improve with practice.
