We present a networked system with interchangeable constraints for studying skillful human movements via haptic (PHANToM-based) displays. The unified interface easily links different physical models with 2D and 3D static spatial constraints and graphical content related to the models. We analyzed motions based on data recorded by a history unit with a frequency of 100Hz. Theoretical and experimental kinematic profiles compared for several cases of basic reaching rest-to-rest tasks included curve-constrained motions with different curvatures, flexible object control, and cooperative two-arm movements. Experimental patterns exhibit the best agreement with optimal control models based on jerk and force-change minimization criteria.
