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.
