The palmar pinch force estimation is highly relevant not only in biomechanical studies, the analysis of sports activities, and ergonomic design analyses but also in clinical applications such as rehabilitation, in which information about muscle forces influences the physician's decisions on diagnosis and treatment. Force transducers have been used for such(More)
A current challenge with human-machine cooperation systems is to estimate human motions to facilitate natural cooperation and safety of the human. It is a logical approach to estimate the motions from their sources (skeletal muscles); thus, we employed surface electromyography (SEMG) to estimate body motions. In this paper, we investigated a cooperative(More)
Individuals with cerebral palsy have neurological deficits that may interfere with motor function and lead to abnormal walking patterns. It is important to know the joint moment generated by the patient's muscles during walking in order to assist the suboptimal gait patterns. In this paper, we describe a practical strategy for estimating the internal moment(More)
² Human motion and its intention sensing from noninvasive biosignals is one of the significant issues in the field of physical human-machine interactions (pHMI). This paper presents a real-time upper limb motion prediction method using surface electromyography (sEMG) signals for pHMI. The sEMG signals from 5 channels were collected and used to predict the(More)
The use of power assistive devices that use surface electromyography (SEMG) signals may be limited by the noisy nature of SEMG signals. The aim of this study was to investigate the variation in human movement stability while the amount of SEMG-based assistive power was changed. A robotic device provided a torque that was proportional to the torque estimated(More)
A robot-assisted bimanual shoulder flexion rehabilitation system with surface electromyography (sEMG) for hemiplegic patients after stroke is presented as a preliminary study before clinical test. The assistive system driven by combination of bimanual mirror imaging motion and sEMG in order to induce continuous voluntary stimulation to muscle and nerve of(More)
