Abstract

The purpose of this study is to present the evaluation method of contact resistance of building elements and members with palms and hands from the view point of motion support and posture control. First, sensory tests to make evaluation scales from the view point of motion support and posture control with palms and hands were carried out. Next, the contact resistance meter with palms and hands that could measure the contact resistance of samples were developed. Then, coefficients of contact resistance of the samples were searched with the contact resistance meter. Also, the relations were investigated between contact resistance and evaluation scales from the view point of motion support and posture control. As a result, the measurement method of contact resistance of building elements and members with palms and hands were presented.
