This paper describes measurement and evaluation of transferring movement in order to develop a simple assist tool for caregiver. A toe of caregiver is one of the important factors for dynamic balance of the transferring movement. It was clarified by auxiliary experiments that assist to toe holding improved the dynamic balance of the transferring movement support. A motion capture apparatus, an electromyography device and a pressure sensitive sensor were used to measure dynamic characteristics of human body balance for the transferring movement. It was experimentally evaluated by the comparison between the assist to toe holding transferring movement and the normal transferring movement. As a result, the assist to toe holding improved dynamic balance during transferring movement.
