Abstract—Patients with acquired brain injuries present adverse symptoms such as attention, memory, and functional disorders. They prevent them from effectively executing the activities of daily living. In the rehabilitation of patients with acquired brain injuries, patients need to be aware of their cognitive states. Its effective method is to watch the experience videos and present quantitative cognitive status to patients. Current methods to evaluate cognitive states using require special/specific toolkits, and the methods are rigorous when applied for real-time dynamic evaluation. Moreover, patients are often burdened by the need to undergo tests as required by the evaluation methods. In this paper, we propose a method to evaluate the attention function from the state of handling a kitchen knife that includes dangerous movements even during cooking. As a result, we defined four attention levels during cutting behavior in cooking and could classify an average accuracy of 74.3 percent.
