  • The Purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of the leasure activity and social support of the elderly people on their psychological well-being and the moderating role of social support. For this study, data were collected from 347 old people participating in the leasure activity programs operated by 10 facilities for the aged in Seoul, using structured questionnaires. Hierarchical regression analysis technique was used as a main data analysis method for hypothesis test. This study found that productive leasure activity had a beneficial effect on psychological well-being of the elderly measured in terms of life satisfaction and loneliness, whereas consumptive leasure activity had a positive effect only on life satisfaction; that, with regard to social support, spouse support had the most important effect on life satisfaction, followed by friend support and children support, whereas friend support had the most important effect on loneliness, followed by spouse support; and that the relationship between productive leasure activity and life satisfaction was moderated by spouse support and friend support, whereas the relationship between productive leasure activity and loneliness was moderated by friend support.

  • Because of the development of modern medical science and increased longevity of elderly due to better health care: we are facing a new growing generation of "silver" senior citizens. In near future we will see a slow increase in senior spare time activities in our society. In this study the types of the spare time activities are researched and analyzed. Over the age of 60 most seniors spend ample time watching television and sleeping. Amazingly, in the second age group, seniors aged forty to fifty, when shown to the wonders of internet and cyber technology tend to accept and desire it. It is expected be seen this trend will increase. Secondly, in the case that seniors in their forties and fifties are entering into the silver generation, we can expect more promising multimedia content developed for the elderly.

  • The traditional medical equipments are devices used by medical professionals but not used in public environment. Common people, however, require light-weight medical devices to make healthcare for themselves nowadays. Those medical devices are used to monitor personal health status such as blood pulse, blood pressure, diabetes. Also, some of them are operated in mobile environment called u-healthcare. This paper implements a portable healthcare system composed of $SpO_2$(Saturation of Partial Pressure Oxygen) sensors and a gateway for detecting hypoxemia during people's leasure activity such as climbing or hiking. The $SpO_2$ sensor is designed as watch style to support dynamic exercise and the gateway is designed as necklace style to support the elderly. The result of a performance evaluation shows that the performance of the $SpO_2$ sensor using reflection technology is not lower than that of a clairvoyant styled $SpO_2$ sensor.

  • The objective of this study is to develop eco-friendly, functional towel material utilizing cotton-Modal-chitosan blended(C-M-CH) yarn and natural dyeing with mugwort colorants. Dyeing properties of towels with mugwort colorants were studied by investigating the effect of dyeing conditions including concentration of mugwort colorants, dyeing temperature, and dyeing time, and the effects of mordants on dye uptakes were investigated. The C-M-CH towel showed better dye uptake than 100% cotton towel with mugwort colorants. The shade of towels got darker and red-yellowish tint increased by mordanting. Comparing with 100% cotton towel, the colorfastness of dyed C-M-CH towel was satisfactory showing above 3 grade which is the lowest grade to washing fastness. The antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus and deodorization performance of towels were excellent and improved by dyeing with mugwort colorants. From the results obtained, it is concluded that the cotton-Modal-chitosan blended towel dyed with mugwort colorants can be used practically for an eco-friendly and multi-functional towel materials with excellent absorbance and drying properties.

  • In the previous study (Jee & Park, 2013), family activities, which can be utilized to improve scientific creativity at home have been developed and used. In that study, 12 families fell into two groups, received 6 programs for scientific creativity respectively, and conducted the program for six weeks. As consequences, various positive responses from participants have been received. This survey has been conducted to test whether scientific creativity could be improved quantitatively through family activity at home, and to examine parents' recognition of the feasibility of teaching creativity as well. To answer this, a scientific creativity test consisting of three items in the pre- and post-test respectively have been developed and carried out. The test includes various elements of scientific creativity defined by Park (2011). For obtaining parents' responses, a questionnaire has been developed and applied. The results reveal that parents have changed their thought to 'everyone can conduct scientific creativity activity at home if effective programs are provided and they learn the basic skills to do it.' And, through the scientific creativity test, the experimental group has indicated an improvement in scientific creativity with statistical significance and a large effect size. Therefore, we suggest that family activity for scientific creativity can be applied to family activity in various situations such as camp, leasure or science museum.

  • Physical activity has been increased with increased leasure time. Specifically, due to our mountainous geographical benefits, people actively participate in hiking and climbing as regular daily activities. Thus, more stable and comfortable hiking boots are required to walk on uneven and sloped rocky surface for a long period of time. 5 male subjects were recruited for testing planter pressure patterns of four different conditions(barefoot, classic hiking boot, stiffness 60 and stiffness 65). Tested hiking boots(stiffness 60 and stiffness 65) consists of the multiple pieces of outsoles as they are designed for a better shock absorption. In the results, some positive aspects of stiffness 60 and stiffness 65 such as wide contact area and powerful propulsive patterns at take off was observed compared to the classic hiking boots. Therefore, biomechanical development of hiking related clothes and footwear as well as equipment would be beneficial for people who enjoy hiking to maximize their quality of activities.
