In this study, we have figured out exercise time and the amount of burned calories, using a three-axis acceleration sensor which we name as a health sensor. What is more, the health sensor calculates the degree of physical exercise taken during exercise. As is generally known, continuing, regular exercise is far more effective than short time exercise for sustainable health management. The health sensor is, therefore, recommended as an instrument to efficiently carry out the health management. Additionally, the health sensor was applied as an exercise subsidiary system to walking and jumping rope tests. In light of their results, the sensor system was found useful for analyzing the pattern of exercise.
