Object control and manipulation are essential skills for many sports and activities.
Some examples of object control:
- Swinging an object (bat, golf club, hammer, etc.)
- Controlling a soccer ball (with head, trunk, legs and/or feet)
- Throwing a Frisbee (speed of arm, coordination with wrist and release, etc.)
- Object control is necessary for other tasks such as: painting, writing, juggling, shuffling a deck of cards, etc.
