Body coordination is the ability to execute smooth, accurate, controlled, and efficient body patterns (optimal interaction of muscle function). It means selecting the right muscle at the right time with proper intensity to achieve proper action.
Coordinated movement requires appropriate speed, distance, direction, timing, and muscular tension. It is a process that leads to the activation of motor units of multiple muscles, with simultaneous inhibition of all other muscles in order to carry out a desired activity.
