Development of lower extremity robot
Development of human-like robot to understand human motor function
We approch a human motor control problem by analyzing electromyogram
(EMG) in various human motions.
In our study, we seek to understand human motor function by
developement a human-like musculskeletal lower extremity robot and
applying the result of analysis of EMG to control method of the robot.
We show the musculskeletal lower extremity robot in figure. We used
human skeletal model and pneumatic artificial muscle as frame and
actuator of the robot and adjusted center of mass of the robot by using
sheets of lead.
