Abstract

An apparatus measuring and supporting human standup motions has been developed and is intended for use by elderly people in daily life. It consists of a force plate, a 6-axis force sensor, a motion sensor, and pressure sensors to measure human movement as they stand from a sitting position on a chair. Electric sliders, which can drive the position of the handle, are also added to study the apparatus's supporting motion. Results from a basic experiment find that there is a suitable time of drive against the apparatus's handle. The apparatus's suitable supporting motion has the potential to reduce the pulling force and burden on subjects.
