Paper Abstract

Two kinds of advanced training machines for the elderly people were proposed. One was for the stooping/stretching motion, and the other was for the stretching astride motion. The proposed training machine adopted power-assisting technology for safe and effective training for elderly people. As the interface between user and the system, Muscle Stiffness Sensor(MSS) and Step Force Sensor(SFS) were used to measure muscle activity level and load to lower limb.
