In this work, real-time monitoring of human body during horseback riding utilizing a horse simulator was conducted. Horseback riding has been found to be an effective form of therapy in different musculoskeletal disorders. The general objective of this work is to build a proof-of-concept prototype of a novel horseback riding physiotherapeutic simulator system. For this purpose, couple measurement sessions were handled, and results are presented in the current paper. The idea is to monitor body and brain-behaviour of the professional rider and non-professional rider while riding a horse simulator, using inertial and optical motion capture systems and electroencephalography. Three types of experiment were made, two experiments represent body behaviour and one represents brain behaviour. The data was recorded, filtered if needed and analyzed.
