Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In Japan, number of nursing facility users who require high nursing care level are increasing every year. The previous study was showed that “meal assistance” was the most difficult care technique for the nursing care staff. In this study, a preliminary study on development of a swallowing sensor was performed to reduce burden of nursing care staff for meal assistance. The electromyogram of the digastric was measured both at the resting and at the time of swallowing, and evaluated the time of swallowing by computing an integrated electromyogram. Seven healthy males swallowed his saliva, 10 mL of water, and a pudding, respectively. Integrated electromyogram values at the time of swallowing were significantly greater than those at the resting.
