Pneumatic muscle actuators (PMAs) have the highest power/weight ratio and power/volume ratio of any actuator. Therefore, it can be used not only in the rehabilitation engineering but also as an actuators in robots, including industrial robots and therapy robot. It is difficult to achieve high control accuracy using classical control method, because the(More)
Abstract: The action of a pneumatic muscle actuator (PMA) is very similar to that of animal skeletal muscle. It also has other advantages such as high power/weight ratio, high power/volume ratio, low price, little maintenance needed, great compliance and inherent safety. Therefore, it can be suitably applied to rehabilitation engineering for persons with(More)
