Which would be correct among the two sentences below?

A) In the present invention, the term “dynamic wiggling motion” of an icon refers to a wiggling motion of an icon, wherein the wiggling motion changes the shape of the icon.

B) In the present invention, the term “dynamic wiggling motion” of an icon refers to a wiggling motion of an icon wherein the wiggling motion changes the shape of the icon.

Also, is there any other correction for the sentece you chose?
