Department of Social and Human Science.

<Research Area>

<Aims of my lab.>

The goal of my research is promotion of comfortable, convenient, and healthy life environment.
Research topics to pursue the above purpose include,
(1) the analysis of characteristic and optimality on human motion,
(2) an interaction between a biological system and its surroundings such as sporting goods, health appliances, and the adaptive capabilities of the system, and
(3) the development of program on physical ability and health promotion,
with the methodology of biomechanics, human dynamics and biological information engineering.
