Research and development of wearable auxiliary tool for behavior assistance of elderly who requires nursing care.

Takehiro Tashiro, Kanta Aoki, Kongkwun Lee, Taisuke Sakaki(Kyushu Sangyo University, Japan)

The purpose of this research is to develop a wearable auxiliary tool for relieving the body burden of caregivers who carry out standing assistance / transfer assistance frequently appearing in bathing care. Beginning in 2015, we have made the 1st mockup and 2nd mockup so far. Based on the advice from Kashiihara Hospital in 2016, 1st prototype was produced and a verification experiment of standing assistance / transfer assistance was carried out.

Partial weight-bearing exercise is widely used in rehabilitation for patients with lower limb injuries. General weight scales are widely used for this exercise to measure weight-bearing. These are easy to introduce, but involve some problems. One is that patients cannot easily read the scale to calculate weight-bearing rate. The purpose of this study is to develop a rehabilitation device to address this problem. The device combines the Nintendo Wii Balance BoardTM and a PC. It allows patients to observe the display unit while the device automatically calculates weight-bearing rate.

A Study of a Standing-Up Motion Training Aid by Non-Electric Source Driving

Satoshi Kuga, Nobuhiro Ushimi(Kyushu Sangyo University, Japan)

Standing-up motion training has been practiced as a highly effective rehabilitation for strengthening lower limb muscles by Physical Therapist in hospitals and the like. Meanwhile, elderly persons and patients with recovery tendency desire to execute this standing-up motion training at ordinary households. In this paper, we develop a simple type of a standing-up motion training aid for cordless and non-electric source driving uses in order to repeat standing-up motions by a simple mechanism.

The Human Robotics Research Center at Kyushu Sangyo University was established in 2013 as a practical center for the study of robots designed for rehabilitation and care-support. The HRRC seeks to implement robots intended for the medical and care fields to address problems in those fields. We have focused on the development of rehabilitation robots for spinal cord injury patients. Here, we present three different robots we have developed for standing-motion training, primary-walking-pattern training, and practical-walking training.
