Abstract

This paper introduces a robotic concept for the assessment of psychological factors in prosthetic design. Its aim is to imitate the postural movements of the participants while those are conducting squatting movements in order to investigate the integration of artificial limbs to the subject"s body scheme. Therefore, the robot mimics the functionality and appearance of the human foot, shank and thigh as well as the ankle and knee joint. To induce a more realistic outer appearance, the hull of a shop-window mannequin is used as cladding. The robot is controlled by a computed torque control combined with a RGB-D sensor for the acquisition of the desired trajectories from the participant. In the test setup one leg of the participant is hidden from his view while the robot stands next to him and imitates the movements of this leg. This paper gives an insight in the theory of body schema integration. The concept of the robot is described and detailed information about the mechanical design and actuator dimensioning in accordance with psychological and biomechanical requirements are given. Furthermore, the concept of the human-machine interface, the control algorithm and simulations based on experimental data from a human subject are presented.
