Lifting a heavy object is regarded as a frequently performed motion that imposes physical strains on workers. The objective of this study is to verify the effectiveness of forearm support-type lift assist system (FOLAS) for lifting motion in the sagittal plane. The mechanical structure of the FOLAS is largely divided into a forearm support and a parallel(More)
The objective of this study is to develop a novel method for human-robot cooperation for heavy object manipulation based on sensing pneumatic pressure in air cushions. Forearm-support type lift assist system (FOLAS), a human-cooperative robot we developed, has air cushions that works as a buffer between the machine and the user's forearm. The operating(More)
