We developed <i>"Robotherapist"</i>, which is a 6-DOF force display system for upper limbs including wrists. This system can measure positions and postures of an operator's hand, and generate a feedback force for their upper limbs and wrists. This paper describes motion mechanisms and application software of <i>Robotherapist</i>. Efficient rehabilitation(More)
Ghrelin, a gastric hormone, is a growth hormone-releasing peptide. Its serine-3 acylation with octanoic acid is essential for its orexigenic activity, and therefore, inhibition of the acylation of ghrelin may help in decreasing appetite and preventing obesity. This study aimed to establish a human gastric cell-based assay system to evaluate candidate(More)
A force display system is a kind of human-coexistent robot systems, which share the space with people while they are working, and which directly touch and display force-senses to their users. For such a robot system, it is important to estimate safety quantitatively and to ensure mechanical safety. In this paper, it is described that using MR(More)
A force display system is a kind of these robot systems , which share pepole with the space while they are working, and which directly touch and display force-sences to their users. For such a robot system, it is desirable to estimate safety quantitatively and to ensure mechanically safety. By using MR actua-tors, the safety can be ensured. Moreover,(More)
We derived results for inference on parameters of the marginal model of the mixed effect model with the Box-Cox transformation based on the asymptotic theory approach. We also provided a robust variance estimator of the maximum likelihood estimator of the parameters of this model in consideration of the model misspecifications. Using these results, we(More)
