Abstract(in English) Motivating elderly to exercise is important to extend their healthy life span. Electronic agent (hereafter referred to as an agent) will be used as exercise trainers in the future. To motivate the elderly in exercising by agent's impressional factors, we focus on three factors of agent:(1) self-face morphing that mixes elements of the user's face to the training agent, (2) smiling face, and (3) the addition of expertise onto the agent's advice that incorporates the expert knowledge. We verify whether these three factors can change the impression of the agent and thus increase user motivation. In this study, we prototype such a agent with three factors and conduct an experiment to evaluate the effect of impressions of the agent to subject's motivation during motor function measurement. As an experimental result, we found that the effect of the self-face morphing onto impression of the agent was significant but negatively related. Moreover, the trust of the agent was significant related to subject's motivation.
