Abstract: A Sit-to-Stand Assistance System that can provide functional assistance in standing was developed. Two 650 mm stroke AC servo motor driven linear actuators were squarely combined. The handrail was installed at the intersection of these actuators. When the user stands from a chair, the handrail leads the user’s motion. A personal computer (PC) is used to control the handrail motion, and force plates are placed under the feet. In this experiment the subjects were Parkinson's disease (PD) sufferers. Subjects were not able to stand up with a fixed handrail; however, they were able to stand up using this system without help.
