Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) The aim of this study is to identify the psychological effects of cognitive--physical multitask exercise. Elderly subjects were instructed to perform robot-assisted exercise, being divided into the multitask group (MT group) and the single task group (ST group). Each group subjects perform a simultaneous cognitive and physical exercise (MT), or separated exercises (ST), respectively. The exercises continued for four weeks. Before and after the whole exercises and after every exercises, a questionnaire was conducted to investigate the mental state of subjects. MT group showed significant improvement in walking frequency and fall anxiety before and after training compared with ST group. This shows the effectiveness of cognitive--physical multitasking training. On the other hand, the sense of self-efficacy showed a decline, and further consideration was needed for the content and design of training.
