Paper discusses a health care support system based on cybernetic technology, which utilizes infrared sensors to detect clients’ movements in their homes. The movements are analyzed based on the tasks and information they correspond with, and are further analyzed via a feedback control system. The design and implementation of the system are discussed, including methods of collaborating with clients, clinician and caregivers. A technological evaluation of the technology utilized in the system is presented. The system was created by researchers at the Graduate School of Science and Technology at Kumamoto University in Kumamoto, Japan.
