Features
We engage in development of a cyber-medical system, “The Mirror Magical” for taking a medical check-up anytime and anywhere by use of information and communication technology (ICT). We only have to stand still in front of the mirror to check our autonomic nervous function related to baroreflex on the basis of video signals capable of remote and non-contact measurement. Demonstration experiments have been held to verify the validity of the system in estimation of blood pressure variability and the effects of physical exercise.

Targeted Application(s)/Industry
We can conduct effective collaborative research using the system not only in medical and welfare fields but also for application to smartphones, automobiles, emotion recognition robots, security cameras, sports broadcast and so on.
