Analysis and Control of Model to Develop Support Device Using Biarticular Muscle with Rubber Artificial Muscles
In this paper, the authors aim at developing a wearable power assist wear for lower limb The system requires compact size and lightweight to achieve a practical application, therefore we discuss its effective structure using biarticular muscle. At first, two model of targeting at support device for human lower limb is described, followed by showing each alignment of rubber artificial muscles. Next, construction force generated by rubber artificial muscles to achieve static balance is calculated. At the end, Experiment apparatus is designed from calculation and experimental results is showed.
