    Tasuku Ito, Hidetaka Nozawa, Shigeya Okada, Minoru Hatakeyama, Norihiko Shiratori, Akira Ichikawa, Macky Kato

    New Ergonomics Perspective - Selected Papers of the 10th Pan-Pacific Conference on Ergonomics     25 - 30  2015

     View Summary

    Fall accident is one of the problems in aged society. And Joint disease is also severe, especially in the field of rehabilitation. They are related to the walking ability. Thus, the evaluation and training of walking ability are important to prevent fall accidents. Conventionally, it needs long term of experiments to evaluate the walking ability by motion capture systems, force plates, and so on. In addition, the conventional methods spend costs expensively. The evaluation should be obtained easily in order to reduce the subjects’ burden. In this study, evaluation by the accelerometer and gyrometer was practiced in place of the conventional methods. Two 8ch acceleration and gyro sensors (RF10, MicroStone Corporation) were installed to a subject’s sacrum and vertebra to measure his spine stick picture motion during his walking. Power spectrum, movement track and RMS were used for comparison with measurements of motion capture system (Vicon). All the results have shown the validity and reliability of the simple measurement method. It was revealed that the stick picture motion has the possibility to be applied to the walking ability indicator.

    Hiroshi Yasuoka, Shigeka Shioji, Takeshi Sato, Macky Kato, Shoji Igawa

    New Ergonomics Perspective - Selected Papers of the 10th Pan-Pacific Conference on Ergonomics     239 - 242  2015

     View Summary

    It is one of the most important to create an optimal sleep environment. People who lived irregular hours, i.e. shift workers, global communication tasks, typically obtain 1–2 hour less sleep than the generally accepted target of 8 hours per day. Shift work has become increasingly common in the modern globalized economy. Many work settings such as factory work, service industries, power plants, internet communication management, health care and emergency services require shift work that includes work at night. Furthermore, not only shift workers but also young smart phone device users often experience an extended period of acute sleep deprivation at the start of a new day. Most sleep deprivation studies using complex cognitive tasks require the participants to complete the tasks alone. It was effected human health care and learning performance in young people. The purpose of the current study was to investigate how sleep environment changes between high school student and university student. Jissen Womenn’s Uiversity Ethics Committee approved this survey. There were 831 students (male: 387, female: 444) participate in this study. It was 16 sleep questionnaire items on our web server, i.e.: depth of sleep, difficulties in waking up, quality and latency of sleep, negative affect in dreams, and sleep irregularity, etc. It was collected data during our course activity. There was no significant difference sleeping pattern in between high school and university student. Additionally it was on roughly the same level sleeping conditions of them. However it was a tendency toward to sleep deprivation onto nocturnal life. In the current report we present results of a prospective study that used objective measures to evaluate sleep, it was consequently sluggishness due to the chronic sleep deprivation, to become a late-night students.

    It was well known to apply makeup to get well daily life for especially dementia person. Then it was very important to makeup, enjoying paint own face beautifully for all women. Recent years there were many opportunities to makeup conditions during recruiting occupational period in Japanese university students. They had a training session about makeup and arrangement of hairstyle to best suited to getting jobs. That’s the way that the purpose of this study was to investigate in difference between a man and a woman about virtual image of recruited makeup and hairstyle. There were over 82% student from preliminary survey (n = 145), to learn important events markup for recruiting. There were 22 students (men: 6, female: 16) participate in this experiments to evaluate the 16 image of virtual markup patterns. It was produced the virtual markup images from jKiwi (GPL, OpenSource, ver0.9.5) to according to result of questionnaire markup materials (eye shadow: 2 colors, cheek color: 2 colors, lip liner: 2 color, and basemake: 1 type). It was applied sensory reactions in both pair comparison method and normalized standings methods. Additionally we tried to data acquisition of point of gaze compare two different images side-by-side by using EMR-9 (Eye Mark Recorder, Nac Image Technology, Japan). There was the most popular image of pair comparison method that not too long hairstyle with elastic viewable ear, eye shadow with light brown color than pink, cheek with orange than pink, lip liner with pink than orange. However, it was finding of normalized standings methods that the most popular image was to markup cheek with pink than orange in a confined change. It was observed the different of gazing pattern between men and female that it was more long period of residence-time distribution at mouth in men. Consequently, it was showed that it was mood shift the ill-loved onto heavy using of orange color makeup. It was indicated that perceive a need to worry about what the other person likes in acceptance wide variety for recruiting makeup.

  • Quantitative confirmation of residents’ everyday life behavior by acceleration measurement of facilities in a house

    Macky Kato, Yoshie Shimodaira, Takeshi Sato

    New Ergonomics Perspective - Selected Papers of the 10th Pan-Pacific Conference on Ergonomics     243 - 249  2015

     View Summary

    In aged society, decreasing of worker population is one of the most important problems. Especially the farming population has been decreasing in recent years. On the other hand, the elderly people’s families live away from them, because they cannot expect a reasonable profit from farming. In addition, it is hard to find other jobs in a rural area. Thus, the isolated farmers need somebody’s help to take care of themselves. For example, the families can confirm their everyday lives by a remote system with monitor cameras. However, it can violate the residents’ privacy. The appropriate system should have a confirmation function without violating the privacy. In this study, facilities in a house can be thought as sensors of everyday life in place of cameras. The acceleration measurement was held for quantification of the residents’ behavior in a house. The residents in the subject house are 62-year aged husband, 58-year aged wife and 91-year aged father. The accelerometers have been fixed on the refrigerator and the door in the house. Approximately one-year lengths, acceleration of the facilities were recorded through 2013 and 2014. The fluctuation of acceleration of the refrigerator can indicate the resident’s using in a day. It showed that the residents lived well-regulated lives. The refrigerator will be able to indicate the feature of their everyday life. On the other hand, the fluctuation of acceleration of the door can indicate the resident’s movements inside out. The door movements depend on the seasons. The number of the door movements in each season is different. They kept the door open through the daylight in summer, but they close the door after going in winter. These results reveal that the acceleration measurement of facilities in a house can become the quantitative confirmation method of residents’ everyday life stability.

  • Developing of evaluation method of motion repeatability by motion capturing

    Macky Kato, Takeshi Sato, Yoshie Shimodaira

    Proceedings of the International Conferences on Interfaces and Human Computer Interaction 2015, IHCI 2015, Game and Entertainment Technologies 2015, GET 2015 and Computer Graphics, Visualization, Computer Vision and Image Processing 2015, CGVCVIP 2015 - Part of the Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems 2015     325 - 327  2015

     View Summary

    Motion repeatability is one of the required skills for any sports including tennis. One of the reasons why expert tennis players can accurately serve the ball to another side is their motion repeatability. On the other hand, however the novice players can luckily serve the ball, they are required to practice again and again to repeat the motion. The reliable criterion by the objective numerical indicator is needed for training and evaluation of motion repeatability. In this study, the method of numerical evaluation of motion repeatability would be developed by a motion capture system. The correlation coefficients of each segment angular fluctuation on the serving motions were validated as the criterion for motion repeatability. 17 sensors measure three-dimensional 23 segments and 22 joints angle fluctuations during the two seconds around the ball impact. Three experienced tennis players and three novice players tried to serve ten balls by right arms. The results of the experiments indicated that the repeatability of upper body tends to be stable comparing arms and legs for all the subjects. The correlation coefficients of the fluctuations at the measurement joints that are far from the upper body tend to be low. Comparing the experts and the novices on the motion of the arms and legs, the novices have much variation of correlation coefficients of each motion than the experts. In addition, most of the motion fluctuations of novices are larger than those of the experts. This study revealed that the joint angular fluctuation would be able to be applied as a criterion of motion repeatability.

    平成19年度から20年度にかけて実施された入力に関するインターフェイスとして用いる新規デバイスに関する研究の結果、入力方法の簡素化が必要であることがわかったため、インターネット接続用の機器として安価に入手できる携帯型ゲーム機に用いられるインターフェイスによるWEBブラウザ利用を試みた。操作すべき対象の数は減るため、学習に要するユーザの労力は低減する。しかしながら小型のブラウザ機器は画面の大きさが小さく、利用に困難が生じるため、表示機能との間でトレードオフが生じることが明らかとなったことから、表示を拡大する必要があることが明らかとなった。
    また、入力側インターフェイスの構造に対して、平成21年度は、出力インターフェイスを課題とした寛容性の研究を行った。すなわち、前年度までの調査によって、高齢者に対する操作性向上を目的とした機能制限は,インターフェイスレベルにおいて必要であることがわかったため、特にコンピュータによる表示情報についての寛容性を実現するために、専門的に用いられる用語を普通の態様で使用される言葉への置き換えについて検討した。初心者向けに用意された教本から抽出した用語の多くは専門用語を用いているが、これを普通に用いられる言葉に置き換えることで、ユーザの理解を促すことが可能になることがわかった。つまり実装されるインターフェイスとして、ユーザ自身が持つボキャブラリへの変換が行われることが、表示デバイスに求められることがわかった。以上のことから、PCの用途を限定している多くの高齢者ユーザに対してPCの利用促進にあたっては、複雑な学習を要するPCではなく、高齢者のユーザ特性を考慮し、機能が限定された安価な端末を用いる方法が、寛容なPC学習方法として有効であるといえる。

     View Summary

    One of the purposes of this study is decreasing residents' physical and mental burden in a depopulated area by applying IT to Mura-Yaku, the role of the village, by introducing information and communication technology. Another purpose is preparing the computer environment at elderly people's house as communication tools for their hobby, farm and communication for their family who stay away.
    At first, we held PC class with aim of applying information technology to Mura-Yaku, the role of village. However, we had only suggested the alternation of Mura-Ysku to the IT at that time, because of the little number of participants in small area and the problem of infrastructure in the village. It was cleared that expanding number of users is important for the computerization. Mura-Yaku will be changed into information technology when they use PC without any limitation.
    In order for the elderly people to continue using PC at their house after the lessons, they need some support systems. By the support system and assist of a computer club in the neighbor village, we came to send tutor to them from community center. On the other hand, we started Nakajo PC Cub for the students of computer class to communicate each other and get some help of supporters. We opened the permanent computer room at the community center to expand the number of users and to support them to use IT. Furthermore, we conducted an experiment of pointing device manipulating by elderly users and could find out a factor of device for elderly users.
    The purpose of PC was for use as a stand-alone until this time. So we held the next PC classes to build homepages with the consciousness of use in network. At this time the staff of community center and village office participated with the residents. Most of their concerns are about their personal materials, such as hobby, farm, and so on. Thus, it will become possible to activate the communication outside a village by dispatching their personal information. This resident network was able to show the direction which agriculture and depopulated area activate.
