—Although standing-up motion is an important activity of daily living, it remains unclear how people perform the motion in different situations. As described in this paper, muscle synergy analysis is applied to standing-up motions performed at different circumstances, such as two different heights and at three different speeds. Results elucidated three(More)
— Recently, declining physical ability of elderly people has become an extremely important social issue. To improve their daily living activities, the standing-up motion is emphasized in this study as an important daily motion. Synergy analysis is applied to the standing-up motion to extract four important groups of muscle activations (synergies).(More)
— Recently healthcare of the elderly people has become a serious issue in medical and rehabilitation areas. In order to know their functional mobility and provide sufficient medical treatment, it is important to measure their body state precisely and objectively. Therefore we developed a wearable and wireless sensor of gyroscope and accelerometer(More)
—As the population continues to age, the number of elderly people requiring healthcare is increasing. In order to improve their physical function, they need to get physical training. There are activities which require integrated arm movements and lower body movements. However there are no quantitative testing methods of the degree of recovery for the(More)
