Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In the area of rehabilitation, there is a growing interest in dysphagia. Purpose of this study is to automate the dysphagia screening test, and to establish an evaluation method with standard evaluation criteria. In this study, the authors developed a measurement device for the laryngeal movement associated with swallowing using a neodymium magnet and three-dimensional magnetic sensors. Subjects' tasks are same as repetitive saliva swallowing test (RSST), modified water swallow test (MWST), and food test which are representative screening test. In this experiment, the first swallowing is extracted as a template waveform for each subject. Similarity to the template is calculated to evaluate the swallowing. The similarity shows high values when subjects do swallowing. Number of swallowing can be counted automatically. It is suggested that screening test can be conducted objectivity without special facilities using this proposed method.
