The topological invariance and synergies of human movements are discussed through the analysis and comparison of upper-limb target-reaching tasks. Five subjects were asked to perform different target-reaching tasks with different indices of difficulty, and the movements were captured using a Vicon 3D motion analysis system. Topological invariance was observed in the trajectories of different task performances. After normalization, the trajectories of the arm tips had very close patterns for… CONTINUE READING
