The purpose of this study was to develop a body weight support gait training system for stroke and spinal cord injury (SCI) patient. This system consists of an orthosis powered by pneumatic McKibben actuators and a piece of equipment of body weight support. The attachment of powered orthosis can be fit to individual subjects with different body size. This(More)
We are developing S-CAT computer test system that will be the first automated adaptive speaking test for Japanese. The speaking ability of examinees is scored using speech processing techniques without human raters. By using computers for the scoring, it is possible to largely reduce the scoring cost and provide a convenient means for language learners to(More)
In this paper, we propose an automatic scoring method for the open answer task of the Japanese speaking test SJ-CAT.

We devised a novel set(More)
