Abstract

The exoskeletal robots are expected to support the daily activities of physically weak persons such as elderly persons or handicapped persons in these days. In our previous research, the exoskeletal robots for elbow or shoulder motion support have been developed since the elbow and shoulder motion is especially important for people to perform tasks in everyday life. In this paper, we present a mechanism of the moving center of rotation of the shoulder joint of the exoskeletal robot for human shoulder motion support in order to fit the center of rotation of the robot shoulder joint to that of the physiological human shoulder joint during the shoulder motion. The effectiveness of the proposed mechanism of the robot has been evaluated by experiment.
