Abstract

The sensorimotor training method is more and more applied in therapy, rehabilitation, prevention as well as to increase performance. The training comprises of the practice of motor action and the improvement of the proprioception. The increasing demand for training has led to a growing range of training equipment. However, this can only be achieved when the training equipment is applied correctly. The application of the training equipment is influenced by two factors: the indiviual behavior when using the equipment as well as the subjective impression of effort by each patient, both of which can differ strongly. For the purpose of this study, 18 healthy test persons were recruited. The test comprised of each person having to use each device at various levels of difficulty. Physiological data measured by EMG and ECG as well as psychological data were collected. The study revealed that the equipment demands different levels of effort from the individual depending on the physical abilities. Furthermore, it was shown that changing tasks on the particular exerciser improved the effort of the test persons.
