Abstract

In this paper, we analyzed the characteristics of muscles and balance to develop integrated contents for rehabilitation of the motor functions with the aged and the infirm, and, on this ground, made prototypical devices and rehabilitation training contents corresponding to each exercise. In the system, rehabilitation training for the upper limbs has a functional form of motion designed to put one’s hand on the ball-shaped device and move on the flat table, and that for the lower limbs has motion that moves with physical weight in a standing position on the balance board. To confirm the effects of rehabilitation training, we used EMG to quantify the degree of changes in muscles of the lower limbs, such as tibialis anterior, gastrocnemius, rectus femoris, and biceps femoris, according to balance of the human body. Using the results of this experimental training, we provided several contents necessary for rehabilitation training of the upper and lower limbs.
