Application

Assesses eye-hand, hand-hand and eye-hand-foot coordination in three-dimensional space.
Movements are controlled by utilizing the feedback of sensomotor information from the movement currently being executed. The level of the individual’s sensomotor performance is determined not only by innate ability but also by learned task-specific experiences that make similar tasks easier to deal with. This test is suitable for use in recruitment, especially in connection with manufacturing & safety assessments, and in sports psychology.

Administration

The task is to put a yellow circle segment that is displayed in three-dimensional space into a required position. The circle segment, which is standing on its tip, starts to make unpredictable movements. Using joysticks or foot pedals, the respondent must counteract these movements so that the circle segment assumes the required upright position.

Test forms

S1: Short form
S2: Standard form
S3: Long form – increased measurement precision
S4: Special form for foot panels

Scoring

The following main variable is scored:

Time in ideal range (in %) Measure of sensomotor coordination ability.
The subsidiary variables provide a more detailed picture of coordination ability in relation to horizontal or vertical movements.
