This study investigates the control involved in a task where subjects rhythmically bounce a ball with a hand-held racket as regularly as possible to a prescribed amplitude. Stability analyses of a kinematic model of the ball-racket system revealed that dynamically stable solutions exist if the racket hits the ball in its decelerating upward movement phase. Such solutions are resistant to small perturbations obviating explicit error corrections. Previous studies reported that subjects… CONTINUE READING
