Abstract

To maintain and uplift the motivation for doing exercise which is tend to be too simple in rehabilitation and ergotherapy, doing exercise with music is one of the good solutions. In this paper, we confirm that doing exercise with music is fun. Next, we design five types of musical features which relate to exercises. These features are evaluated by doing five types of exercises with listening to the tunes. Based on the results obtained from the experiments, we found many new things, for example, tempo has the adjustment limitation based on how well the user knows the tune. In this paper, we report the latest results from the experiments and explain the way to progress of this research.
