Augmented feedback strategies assist motor learning of real life tasks in sports or in rehabilitation. The impact of these strategies depends on the subjects’ skill level and characteristics of the task. Theref ore, we explore various external feedbacks on the learning of a complex motor task and investigate the effect of different task characteristics and adaptive feedback strategies for transition from novice to expert level in rowing.
Instructions play an important role to introduce a new motor task to the subjects. So far, the usual approach for starting a study protocol in motor learning was to verbally instruct and let the subjects familiarize with the study apparatus themselves. Since the learning rate of a motor skill is the highest in the beginning, other instructional strategies may also show potential benefits. Thus, we investigate the initial skill improvement by means of concurrent feedback strategies when they are used to familiarize and instruct the subjects.
