Movement Variability – Movement Variability Research – CNS and Movement Variability
You’ve heard of heart rate variability, but are you aware of the concept of movement variability? In this lecture, Guido Van Ryssegem covers what movement variability means and how it affects us — how it affects performance, fitness levels, ability and disability and health. What is inherent movement variability and how does it limit our ability to move?
“Human movement variability is a normal variation that occurs across multiple repetitions of tasks. Human movement lies in a continuum between too much variability and complete repeatability. It’s a dynamic equilibrium that constantly changes.”~Guido Van Ryssegem
