Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) People with serious motor disabilities can operate electronic devices like personal computers with the help of a “control-interface switch” operable even by slight voluntary body-movements. Such switches, however, have a defect of being affected significantly by involuntary body movements, resulting in erroneous operations of the devices. Then, we have been attempting to develop a geomagnetic sensor–based control-interface switch, GSN/1, which is able to eliminate involuntary movements. In this paper, we evaluated two characteristics of GSN/1 as follows: 1) detection ability of voluntary movement and 2) elimination ability of involuntary movement. Experiments employing healthy volunteers demonstrated that GSN/1 could be sensitive to thumb movements with a tip motion distance of more than 6 [mm] and insensitive to involuntary body movements like twitch.
