Technology-Assisted Feedback for Motor Learning: A Brief Review

Adam W Potter, William J Tharion, Joe M Elrod

Abstract


Within the realm of athletic performance, medical rehabilitation, and basic improvements to physical activity, there are a wide array of technological advances that can assist facilitating motor function and motor learning.  We review a select subset of the technologies that can be used to improve feedback to increase the efficiency of motor learning as well as provide a reference of how these systems can be applied.
