Honda Stride Management Assist System, a wearable physical assistance robot, uses two actuators located at both right and left hip joints. By adjusting assist timings to one’s leg movements, these actuators help increase the length of strides so that walking becomes easy.
For a wearable physical assistance robot to be safe for humans, this study sets its objective to develop safety technologies. In order to fulfill this objective, the study uses a Stride Management Assist System prototype to understand challenges and find solutions. To be more precise, the study first defines a situation or condition of elderly using a Stride Management Assist System, and then conducts a risk assessment to specify items that are needed to be addressed for lowering risks. The study then develops safety technologies and applies them to the prototype.
In the 2012 fiscal year (Heisei 24), there are two activities. One is to participate in a care prevention measure planned by National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology. The measure targets seniors and takes place in a shopping mall in Obu-city, Aichi. Seniors participating in the measure use Stride Management Assist System during a 9-month period. The study collects data on walking state and disturbance occurrence in order to establish a base for senior risk evaluation later. The other is a safety validation study in which a dummy is used to see how a fall while wearing an assist device affects users. This validation study is an ongoing work from Heisei 23 period. In collaboration with Tsukuba Robot Safety Center and Nagoya University, the study conducts a simulated fall test and a validation on how walking be affected when a device malfunctions for both healthy and senior subjects.
