ICCAS is an international conference on Control, Automation and Systems has been annualy held in Republic of Korea since 2001. ICCAS 2015 Student Best Paper Award is evaluated on technical contribution and presentation quality and 10 students are selected as finalists by thesis review, then 5 students were selected by presentation for award winning.

Ms. Ayaka Yamada's research content:
The goal of our work was to develop a treatment system for restoring proprioception in patients with low back pain and tendency for falls. For this purpose, we investigated postural sway during local vibratory stimulation in elderly people by using our developed device. Vibratory stimulations, which these frequencies were determined from eigen response frequencies for proprioception were applied. The Meissner and Vater-Pacini corpuscles may be deteriorated in patients with low back pain. The Meissner corpuscle in the lumbar region may be deteriorated in those who have a tendency for falls.
