In this study, we developed a new system for measuring and monitoring the degree of an employee’s fatigue. The system is comprised of an ergometer, a pulsometer, a Kinect sensor, and a computer. It records the heart rate and the 3D motion of a subject during a pedaling exercise. This system is simple, inexpensive, and easy to use. This paper explains the construction of the system, and reports the results of verification experiments with a special focus on the use of the Kinect sensor. The results show that the Kinect sensor is a useful tool for recording body movement and that the system may be used to measure and monitor the degree of fatigue.
