Abstract

Comprehension of disability prevention promotes learner's performance and motivation for continuity of physical learning/training. We designed a system for an educational program of the prevention associated with self-learning of specified stretch-poses through image analysis of the pictures captured by a smart device. The system detects the slight changes of muscle hardness due to narrowed movement range between body parts on the picture-images. Learner can obtain the awareness with appropriate stretch contents of disability prevention from the system in interval training and rest-time before/after training. The paper describes the reliability of system about extraction of movement range from the analysis result compared with the advanced measurement methods including goniometer and motion capture for baseball players as the initial evaluation. Additionally, we evaluated the difference between leaner's recognition from perception and measurement data for cognitive improvement.
