Loko-R training, and indeed other robot-based flexible-trajectory training paradigms [32,56], provides several training characteristics that would facilitate motor learning in this manner.
Moreover, upon further questioning, coaches perceived that advanced motor learning concepts such as decision-making were deemed the domain of sport psychologists rather than skill acquisition specialists who are largely responsible for the research in this domain (Abernethy & Russell, 1987; Farrow & Abernethy, 2002; Jackson, Warren, & Abernethy, 2002).

Three VI Fit games are currently available: Pet-n-Punch, inspired by whacka-mole, asks a user to protect a field of carrots by bopping varmints on their head; VI Bowling implements the game play of the Wii Sports Bowling motor learning feature that allows players to find the direction in which to throw their ball using vibrotactile feedback, and audio and speech effects are used to indicate the result of each throw; like VI Bowling, VI Tennis implements the game play of Wii Sports Tennis.
To clarify this mechanism, the researchers developed a technique based around the phenomenon of horizontal optokinetic response (HOKR), a compensatory eye movement which can be used to quantify the effects of motor learning.
