    We considered the change in joint stiffness as a motion strategy in human lumbar extension movement. We developed a musculoskeletal model that can reproduce this motion strategy and attempted to clarify the individual characteristics and differences in motion strategy. This model reproduces changes in lumbar joint stiffness during movement by appropriately adjusting parameters such that they represent the motion strategy. Using this model, we identified parameters in lumbar extension exercises for six participants with differences in lumbar joint stiffness and examined changes in lumbar joint stiffness and motion strategies. The results showed that participants with similar changes in joint stiffness had commonalities in their motion strategies.

    In the fields of control engineering and robotics, either the Lagrange or Newton–Euler method is generally used to analyze and design systems using equations of motion. Although the Lagrange method can obtain analytical solutions, it is difficult to handle in multi-degree-of-freedom systems because the computational complexity increases explosively as the number of degrees of freedom increases. Conversely, the Newton–Euler method requires less computation even for multi-degree-of-freedom systems, but it cannot obtain an analytical solution. Therefore, we propose a partial Lagrange method that can handle the Lagrange equation efficiently even for multi-degree-of-freedom systems by using a divide-and-conquer approach. The proposed method can easily handle system extensions and system reconstructions, such as changes to intermediate links, for multi-degree-of-freedom serial link manipulators. In addition, the proposed method facilitates the derivation of the equations of motion-by-hand calculations, and when combined with an analysis algorithm using automatic differentiation, it can easily realize motion analysis and control the simulation of multi-degree-of-freedom models. Using multiple pendulums as examples, we confirm the effectiveness of system expansion and system reconstruction with the partial Lagrangians. The derivation of their equations of motion and the results of motion analysis by simulation and motion control experiments are presented. The system extensions and reconstructions proposed herein can be used simultaneously with conventional analytical methods, allowing manual derivations of equations of motion and numerical computer simulations to be performed more efficiently.

    Advances in micro-electro-mechanical systems technology have led to the emergence of compact attitude measurement sensor products that integrate acceleration, magnetometer, and gyroscope sensors on a single chip, making them important devices in the field of three-dimensional (3D) attitude measurement for unmanned aerial vehicles, smartphones, and other devices. Sensor fusion algorithms for posture measurement have become an indispensable technology in cutting-edge research, such as human posture measurement using wearable sensors, and stabilization problems in robot position and posture measurement. We have also developed wearable sensors and powered suits in our previous research. We needed a technology for the real-time measurement of a 3D human body motion. It is known that quaternions can be used to algebraically handle 3D rotations; however, sensor fusion algorithms for three sensors are presently complex. This is because these algorithms deal with the post-rotation attitude (pure quaternions) rather than rotation information (the rotor) to avoid a double covering problem involving the rotor. If we are dealing with rotation, it may be possible to make the algorithm simpler and faster by dealing directly with the rotor. In this study, to solve the double covering problem involving the rotor, we propose a stateful rotor and develop a technique for uniquely determining the time-varying states of the rotor. The proposed stateful rotor guarantees the continuity of the rotor parameters with respect to angular changes, and this paper confirms its effectiveness by simulating two rotations around an arbitrary axis. In addition, we verify experimentally that a fast sensor fusion method using stateful rotor can be used for attitude calculation. Experiments also confirm that the calculated results converge to the desired rotation angle for two spatial rotations around an arbitrary axis. Since the proposed stateful rotor extends and stabilizes the definition of the rotor, it is applicable to any algorithm that deals with time-varying quaternionic rotors. In this research, an algorithm based on a multiply–add operation is designed to reduce computational complexity as a high-speed calculation for embedded systems. This method is theoretically equivalent to other methods, while contributing to power saving and the cost reduction of products.

    In modern computers, complicated signal processing is highly optimized with the use of compilers and high-speed processing using floating-point units (FPUs); therefore, programmers have little opportunity to care about each process. However, a highly accurate approximation can be processed in a small number of computation cycles, which may be useful when embedded in a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) or micro controller unit (MCU), or when performing many large-scale operations on a graphics processing unit (GPU). It is necessary to devise algorithms to obtain the desired calculated values without an accelerator or compiler assistance. The residual correction method (RCM) developed here can produce simple and accurate approximations of certain nonlinear functions with minimal multiply–add operations. In this study, we designed an algorithm for the approximate computation of trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions, which are nonlinear elementary functions, to achieve their fast and accurate computation. A fast first approximation and a more accurate second approximation of each function were created using RCM with a less than 0.001 error using multiply–add operations only. This achievement is particularly useful for MCUs, which have a low power consumption but limited computational power, and the proposed approximations are candidate algorithms that can be used to stabilize the attitude control of robots and drones, which require real-time processing.

    This study describes the effect of Active Corset on the lumbar spine. Active Corset is assist tools used to prevent low back pain. It tightens the waist optimally according to the lumbar load during work. This study aimed to clarify the mechanical effect of tightening of the pelvis on lumbar joints and determine the mechanism leading to reduction of the lumbar load. Moreover, this study examined the phenomena commonly occurring among the subjects with reduced lumbar load by tightening of the pelvis. First, we will present some examples of currently used assist tools and demine the utility of the Active Corset among the various tools used. Next, the mechanism of the Active Corset will be described. Further, we will present a hypothesis about reducing the lumbar load by tightening the pelvis. After describing the change in the joint bending angle on tightening, we will describe reduction of burden from the antigravity torque around the lumbar joint. Finally, we will compare active tightening using Active Corset with tightening using a constant force and describe the advantage of active tightening.

    The purpose of this study is to develop a walking assist device by controlling trunk and pelvis motion. Human gait motion consists of whole body exercise including lower body motion and upper one. As all exercises are performed normally, walking with less energy loss is performed. If any exercises are incomplete, compensatory motion is performed and it is considered that there is energy loss. Therefore, this study aims at developing the walking assist device to make normal exercises and reduces energy loss by applying external forces, focusing on the trunk rotation and the pelvic rotation that involved in stride length and walking speed.

    This paper proposed a walking assistance method by using trunk rotation based on the spinal engine theory. According to the spinal engine theory, our walking is realized by cooperation between upper body and legs through the energy exchange. Therefore, we developed an assistance device for trunk rotation and its control method. We adopted the periodic input control as the control method and modified it to be suitable for human assistance. According to experimental results, the proposed method realized walking assist by supporting trunk rotation movement. Moreover, it also realized training effect as the walking resist, by controlling a parameter of the controller. In this article, their effects were confirmed by theoretical analysis and experiments.

    These days, inertial sensors are often used to capture human movements. A complimentary filter is the one method of sensor fusion, which several sensors data are combined to set off each sensor's disadvantages. It is often used for wearable devices because of its high measurement accuracy at low calculation cost. Human motion contains various speeds and frequency. However, in a complementary filter, combined frequency range is fixed and the filter can not cope with motion out of the range. Thus, a coefficient of the complimentary filter is replaced with sigmoid function in order to fluctuate along with motion speed of subjects. This fluctuating coefficient enables measuring irregular motions of human. Experiment shows that using this method rises accuracy of motion measurement.

    <p>Anteflexion of the spine is essential for many physical activities of daily living. However, this motion places the lumbar disks because it generats heavy load due to changes in the shape of the lumbar spine and can lead to low back pain. In older to reduce low back pain, here we proposed a wearable sensor system configuration that can estimate lumbosacral alignment and lumbar load by measuring the shape of the lumbar skin when the lumbosacral alignment changes. The shape of the lumbar skin and posture angle are measured by using curvature sensors and accelerometers. In addition, the system must be constructed in consideration of the physique, in order to absorb in a variety of human. We proposed this system by measuring the body parameters of anteflexion and studied the change in dimensions of the lumbar spine from changes in posture. By extracting the dimensions of the lumbosacral spine in X-ray images, the attitude angle, body surface area and the dimensions of the lumbosacral spine have relevance. The lumbosacral dimensions calibration method was developed by using that relation. Lumbosacral alignment estimation considering the difference in physiques is developed, and lumbosacral spine alignment was to improve the estimation accuracy. The proposed method could improve accuracy lumbosacral alignment estimation.</p>

    Anteflexion motion is absolutely necessary when we spend daily life which we carry, snow shoveling, farm work, etc. Because it can be expected to explore the cause of low back pain, it is necessary to measure the lumbar load noninvasively taking lumbosacral alignment and external load into consideration. In this research, we develop a wearable sensor system for estimating the lumbar load.

    This research developed assist equipment that changes the tightening force depending on low back burden. The final aim of this research is to develop the control system to tighten optimally. This paper aims to reveal the response of the human body to the tightening. The low back burden is defined as the compression force on the intervertebrae disk. The first half of this paper verifies the effect of the tightening on pelvis. In the verification about the posture of anteflexion, the low back burden decreased in two subjects among three. Also about the motion of lifting up, all of three subjects was reduced the low back burden. In the second half, the influence on joint stiffness by tighteing was shown for four subjects. By the experiment to identify the inpedance, the increase of elasticity on joints was shown about the one of the subjects.

    In recent years, the necessity of measuring the physical stress is increasing. The reaction force that the legs receive from the floor is useful information for estimating the physical stress. But measurement equipment for reaction force cannot be carried in most cases. It is difficult to measure at the environment that human act. Furthermore, that equipment is expensive, and measurement involves several constraints. We prototype a sensor which is low cost and can measure the reaction force even in any environment.

    This research aims to estimate effect of assist device in real work field. First, Human motion is measured by 6-axis motion tracking devise that combines a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope placed on shank, thigh and back. Next, lumbar joint torque and assisting effect of Smart Suit Lite in the motion are estimated by interactive musculoskeletal simulation. Conventional method to estimate joint torque is using full body motion data measured by optical motion capturing system. But in this research, joint torque can be estimated by only 3 angles of links which is body, thigh and lower leg. Usability of proposal method is verified by the field experiment. As the result of the experiment, workload was evaluated and assistive effect of Smart Suit Lite was estimated by measured motion.

    The authors have developed the smart suit and the smart suit lite as an assist suit for fatigue reduction. The smart suit has elastic materials and actuators. The elastic materials are sources of assisting force and the actuator can control the assist force by adjusting the length of the elastic materials. On the other hand, the smart suit lite has only elastic materials like supporters. In this study, we apply the smart suit and the smart suit lite to racehorse trainers because their work accompanied by a large burden. In the results, we confirmed large effect of fatigue reduction through field experiments.

    We have developed semi-active assist mechanisms and their control method. The semi-active assist mechanism uses the restoring force of elastic materials as an assist force, and the mechanism can control the restoring force by adjusting the equilibrium point of the elastic materials by using an actuator. The control method for sinusoidal motions were developed for power assist and skill assist in previous study. The power assist means to decrease operator's load, and the skill assist means to correct operator's motion. The method was realized both assist by only using the phase difference of forces between the operator and the assist device. In this paper, we analysed the effects of the phase difference for the power assist and the skill assist from viewpoint of impedance control.

    We have developed a soft and flexible power assist device named "smart suit". The assist force is basically gained by the elastic force of elastic materials, and it is controlled by adjusting the length of the elastic materials by using DC motor. In this study, we applied the smart suit to horse trainers for reducing their physical fatigue in horse training to prevent their injuries. Moreover we aim developing an assist force control method based on the energy control for considering not only the power assist but the skill assit. In this paper, we confirm the energy control has the effectiveness of the power assist and the skill assist.

    This paper describes the assist force control of semi-active assist system "Smart Suit" for horse trainer. We developed a soft and flexible power assist device named "Smart Suit" for reducing horse trainers' physical fatigue in their horse training works in order to prevent their spine or legs injuries. The smart suit is a kind of semi-active and flexible power assist devices. The assist force is basically gained by the elastic force of rubber belt, and it is controlled by turning the length of the rubber belt by using DC motor. In order to gain the suitable assist force for periodical horse trainers' motion, the assist force control method based on the periodical input control was developed in this study. Also, for stabilizing their horse riding motion, we developed the assist force control method considering their dynamic stability by controlling their center of gravity on the zero moment point (ZMP) which is the dynamic stable point.

    We developed a new system to assist the elderly with walking. Previous walking assist systems directly control the hips or legs. The proposed system provides walking assistance using passive dynamic walking by controlling trunk rotation. We verify the relation between trunk rotation and walking by fixing trunk rotation. Gait analysis was performed using a motion-capture system and electromyography. We propose an assistive device for a new form of walking assistance. We also developed a prototype of the assistive device and verify its effectiveness.

    Passive walking suppose to depend on trunk rotation, and system is proposed trunk rotation assist by walking periodical. We aim to develop a waking assist suit for a long period of walking. In this study, we analyze walking motion, and got important subject. As the result, we confirmed almost all joints have the same representative frequency, and this system need to control energy. We think state of walking changes with increasing velocity, and human cannot do passive walking in the case of above a certain speed. Therefore, it is important to do assist insufficient energy in the passive walking. There is periodic input control as a method that enables it. Actuator is selected with enough torque and angular velocity for assist trunk rotation from the walking analysis result. We confirmed three nonlinear oscillator characteristic applying periodic input control. As the result, Rayleigh model is most efficient and approximately equal to energy of trunk rotation. We evaluate torque assist ratio of trunk rotation in this system and actuator. As the result, we confirmed that van der Pol is better torque assist ratio average than others, but Hybrid can be cetain of assist.

    Anteflexion of the spine is essential for many physical activities of daily living. However, this motion places the lumbar discs under heavy loading because of changes in the shape of the lumbar spine, possibly leading to low back pain. With the aim of reducing low back pain, here we developed a wearable sensor system that can estimate lumbosacral alignment and lumbar load by measuring the shape of the lumbar skin as the lumbosacral alignment changes. The shape of the lumbar skin and posture angle are measured by using curvature sensors and accelerometers. In addition, the wearers physique must be considered for the system to be usable by a variety of people. We developed this system by measuring the body parameters associated with anteflexion and studied the changes in the dimensions of the lumbar spine with changes in posture. By measuring the dimensions of the lumbosacral spine on X-ray images, the posture angle, body surface area, and the dimensions of the lumbosacral spine have relevance. A calibration method for lumbosacral dimensions was developed using this relation. However, the estimation method for lumbosacral alignment could not maintain good calibration of interbody distance. Therefore, we further developed the estimation to include a calibration method for interbody distance, thereby improving the estimation accuracy.

    Anteflexion of the spine is essential for many physical activities in everyday life. However, this motion places the lumbar disks under heavy load due to changes in the shape of the lumbar spine and can lead to low back pain. With the aim of reducing low back pain, here we developed a wearable sensor system that can estimate lumbosacral alignment and lumbar load by measuring the shape of the lumbar skin when the lumbosacral alignment changes. In addition, we used this system to measure the parameters of anteflexion and studied the change in dimensions of the lumbar spine from changes in posture. By determining the dimensions of the lumbosacral spine on an X-ray image, a lumbosacral dimensions calibration method based on body surface area and height was developed. By using this method, lumbosacral alignment and lumbar load could be accurately estimated using the wearable sensor system.

    We estimate lumbar torque based on motion measurement using only three inertial sensors. First, human motion is measured by a 6-axis motion tracking device that combines a 3-axis accelerometer and a 3-axis gyroscope placed on the shank, thigh, and back. Next, the lumbar joint torque during the motion is estimated by kinematic musculoskeletal simulation. The conventional method for estimating joint torque uses full body motion data measured by an optical motion capture system. However, in this research, joint torque is estimated by using only three link angles of the body, thigh, and shank. The utility of our method was verified by experiments. We measured motion of bendung knee and waist simultaneously. As the result, we were able to estimate the lumbar joint torque from measured motion.

    In recent years, workers decline has become a major problem in the field such as nursing care, welfare and heavy transport work in a factory with hard work. The authors have developed semi-active assist mechanisms and their control methods as wearable power assist devices for fatigue reduction. The mechanisms have elastic material as the source of assist force, and actuators for controlling the elastic force. Elastic materials such as springs retain equilibrium because their material generates the restoring force toward a natural length. This characteristic is effective in assisting movement that requires a restoration of posture, such as bending and stretching of human limbs. We have optimized its controls for various forms of target work, and confirmed its effectiveness regarding work with a bending motion that requires a postural restoring force. Then the purpose of this study is to develop a control method of the semi-active assist mechanisms. Moreover, this study aims the simultaneous realization of power assist and skill assist based on energy control and its application to semi-active assist mechanism. The proposed skill assist method is implemented using our previous power assist device, so the device provides not only a power assist effect but also a skill assist effect to correct motion. Hence, an operator obtains both power and skill assist effects simultaneously. In order to realize power assist and skill assist simultaneously, we develop efficiency control methods between the power assist and the skill assist in this study. Moreover, to apply the semi-active assist mechanism to real-world tasks like rehabilitation, we aim to develop a control method which has effects of both motion correction and fatigue reduction.

    The authors have developed the smart suit and the smart suit lite as an assist suit for fatigue reduction. The smart suit has elastic materials and actuators. The elastic materials are sources of assisting force and the actuator can control the assist force by adjusting the length of the elastic materials. On the other hand, the smart suit lite has only elastic materials like supporters. In this study, we apply the smart suit and the smart suit lite to racehorse trainers because their work accompanied by a large burden. In the results, we confirmed large effect of fatigue reduction through field experiments.

    This paper describes an analysis of the power assist and the skill assist effects of a semi-active assist mechanism based on an energy control. For this mechanism, we have developed a soft and flexible power assist device that consists of an elastic material and a small direct current motor. The assist force is then the elastic force, which is controlled by adjusting the length of the elastic material by means of the motor. The skill assist is based on a motion correction method of periodic motions that was developed in a previous study. The control method can provide both power assist and skill assist affects. In this study, we analyze the adequacy of the power assist when simultaneously applying the skill assist.

    This paper describes a skill assist method based on an energy control that employs a semi-active assist mechanism. For this mechanism, we have developed a soft and flexible power assist device that consists of elastic materials and a small DC motor. The assist force is the elastic force of the elastic materials, and this force is controlled by adjusting the length of the elastic materials by means of the DC motor. In our previous study, we confirmed that this mechanism has high power assist effectiveness. In this study, we consider correction of user motion correction by the semi-active assist mechanism in order to provide skill assist. We consider the motion to be an energy state and control the motion through energy control. © 2011 IEEE.

    本研究は弾性材とアクチュエータから成るセミアクティブアシスト機構による周期運動のアシストを研究対象とし, これまで行ってきたパワーアシストを実現する制御法の拡張として, 負担軽減だけでなく動作矯正を行うスキルアシスト制御法に関して研究を行っている. 本年度は研究計画の通り, 大目的であるセミアクティブアシスト機構によるパワーアシストとスキルアシストの同時実現に取り組み, これまで開発してきた技術を拡張することでそれを実現した. まず, 我々の扱うセミアクティブアシスト機構において, 補助エネルギをパワーアシストに使うのか, スキルアシストに使うのかは, 人間とアシスト装置のダイナミクスの両方を解析からトレードオフの関係になることがわかっている. 同時実現として我々の研究で解決すべき課題は, この補助エネルギをいかに効率的にパワーアシストとスキルアシストに配分するかである. これまでの研究でパラメータ設計によるパワーアシスト効率制御法, 人間の運動のばらつきを統計的に組み込んだ補助力位相差制限法に基づくスキルアシスト効率制御法を開発してきた. しかしながら, それら双方のトレードオフを考慮した同時最適化は行っていなかった. そのため, 本年度はセミアクティブアシスト機構のパワーアシストとスキルアシストの研究の総まとめとして, トレードオフの関係にあるそれぞれのアシスト効率いかにすれば最適化可能であるかについて研究を行った. この同時最適化という課題を解決するために, 我々は周期運動のアシストの動作点という概念を新たに導入した. トレードオフの関係を用いて円上を動く動作点を考えると, 本システムは半径方向が補助エネルギを示すこととなる. 動作点の概念はその関係を用いて設計しこの概念を用いて同時最適化のためのパラメータ設計を行い, 実験的に検証を行った. その結果, スキルアシストの適用による追従誤差の低下と, その上で目標値通りの最大化されたパワーアシスト効果を得ることができた. これにより, 本研究課題であるセミアクティブアシスト機構とエネルギ制御によるパワー及びスキルアシストの同時実現を達成した.
