Abstract: In Japan and developed countries, it has become aged society, and wide variety welfare device or system have been developed. But these evaluation methods of welfare device or system are limited only stability, intensity and partial operability. Because of, it is not clear to determine the standard to evaluation for welfare device or system of usefulness. Therefore, we will attempt to establish the standard for evaluation about usefulness for objectively and quantitatively for including non-verbal cognition. We examine the relationship between human movements and brain activity, and consider the evaluation method of welfare devices and systems to measure the load and fatigue which were felt by human. In this paper, we measure the load for sitting and standing movement using NISR. We tried to make sure for the possibility of the quantitatively estimation for physical or psychological load or fatigue by measuring of brain activity using NIRS(Near Infra Red Spectroscopy). As results, when subjects perform the movement task, the statistical significant difference was shown in the specific part of the brain region.
