Theoretical tutorials and the scientific literature do not provide information on the proper use of the non-playing hand in table tennis. This study aimed to evaluate the course of the movement in the joints of the non-playing limb during a table tennis topspin forehand stroke (played after a backspin ball) and to determine the inter-individual mov...

The research is aimed at comparing the kinematics (the movement pattern in the most important joints and accelerations of the playing hand) between female table tennis players coached in Poland (POL) and China (CHIN) during the performance of a topspin backhand stroke (so-called quick topspin). The study involved six female table tennis players at...

Joint position sense and force reproduction are the most commonly used measures of proprioception. It is interesting to measure proprioception in integration of the factors most commonly viewed as the most important in table tennis-speed, in particular quick reaction. The aim of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of replication of a specific r...

Background: Statistical parametric mapping (SPM) is an innovative method based on the analysis of time series (data series) and is equivalent to statistical methods for numerical (discrete) data series. This study aimed to analyze the patterns of movement in the topspin backhand stroke in table tennis and to use SPM to compare these patterns betwee...

Background: The identification of gender differences in kinematics and coordination of movement in different body segments in sports may improve the training process by emphasizing the necessity of its differentiation, and consequently individualization, developing, and improving the technique in women and men. Indicating differences can also help...

Data of SPM - gender differences in angular movement in topspin backhand in table tennis
Article

Background The current body of knowledge shows that there is very little research into the occurrence and scale of asymmetry or postural defects in table tennis. It is interesting which regions of the spine are exposed to the greatest changes in the shape of its curvatures and whether the asymmetrical position of the shoulder and pelvic girdles in...

The study examined kinematic parameters and their inter- and intrasubject variability in the topspin forehand of seven top-level table tennis players. A wireless inertial measurement unit (IMU) system measured the movement of the playing hand to analyze the Ready position, Backswing, and Forward events, and a racket-mounted piezoelectric sensor cap...
Article
Full-text available
The aims of the research were to (1) determine the values of kin-ematic parameters in two modifications of the topspin forehand stroke as well as the differences between them and (2) assess the inter-individual and intra-individual variability of the values. Two modifications of a topspin forehand were evaluated: topspin after a topspin ball (TF1)...

The aim of this study was to determine the correlations between angular velocities in individual joints and racket velocity for different topspin forehand and backhand strokes in table tennis. Ten elite female table tennis players participated, presenting different kinds of topspin forehands and backhands - after a no-spin ball (FH1, BH1), after a...
Article
The aims of this study were to evaluate movement patterns of topspin forehand, to define the main principles of performing this shot, and to determine the essential differences in individual types of topspin forehand. In total, 10 female high-level athletes participated in this study. The BTS analysis system was used with a novel model for the rang...
Article
Background: Studies of shot kinematics in table tennis have not been sufficiently described in the literature. The assessment of the racquet trajectory, its speed and time characteristics makes it possible to emphasise on certain technical elements in the training process in order, for example, to increase strength, speed of rotation or speed of t...
Article
Kinesthetic differentiation is frequently reflected in table tennis skills such as making an appropriate racket angle, adjustment of force and speed of arm movement upon hitting the ball, quick assessment of the arm position in reference to the ball, and making decisions about appropriate adjustments or changes. The level of kinesthetic differentia...

Purpose. The aim of the study was to compare the spatial component of proprioceptive ability by reproducing a upper limb movement typical in table tennis and fencing. Methods. The research comprised 41 young males of which 12 were table tennis players, 14 fencers, and 15 not involved in any competitive sports as a control. The experiment was based...

Introduction: Badminton is considered a discipline requiring high levels of all constituent speeds. Few available instances of the research in this area maintain that badminton players are characterised by a great movement speed, high level of nervous conductivity and agility. Aim of Study: This work aims at determining the times of simple reaction...

The aim of this research was to assess the body posture within the trunk area in table tennis players and to estimate the correlations between the specific body posture types, their asymmetries and table tennis practice (training experience). To evaluate body posture the photogrammetric method based on the Moiré phenomenon with equipment by CQ Elec...

Purpose. The aim of this study was to evaluate the differences between two groups of table tennis players (differing by their level of play) in terms of the kinesthetic differentiation ability of their so-called spatial component. Methods. The study was conducted using a goniometer which assessed the accuracy of performing an arm movement, specific...

Kinesthetic differentiation ability in table tennis is probably most reflected by abilities connected with playing precision such as control of ball rotation, modulation of force, speed and direction of shots, and choosing the optimal racquet angle. The aim of the study was to evaluate changes in the level of kinesthetic differentiation ability in...

Summary Background. Kinesthetic differentiation ability in table tennis is most probably reflected by abilities connected with playing precision such as: controll of ball rotation, modulation of force, speed and direction of shots and choosing the optimal racquet angle. The aim of the paper was to evaluate relationship between laboratory-measured k...
