Interaction between wearable robot and the user may cause skin injury, especially the pressure ulcers due to sustained pressure at the connection site. In this study, relationship between pressure ulcer breakout time and applied pressure which is the major cause of pressure ulcer is modeled using human experimental data. The model is proposed to be used to… (More)
Chest injury during unconstrained frontal collision between human and mobile robot is investigated using computer simulation with MADYMO. To assess the chest injury, Combined Thoracic Index (CTI) and Viscous Criteria(VC) was computed. Computed CTI and VC were converted into AIS level by which injury level was evaluated.
Following the increased use of mobile robots in the field, the injury problem caused by the collision between human and the mobile robot has become an issue of growing importance in the society. Neck injury is considered as one of the major injury mode in collision-induced injury. Hence in this paper, AIS of the neck injury was predicted using the index of… (More)
