Abstract: As a second stage of the research on power-assist exoskeleton systems, this paper presents a new concept of an upper-limb power-assist exoskeleton that can assist physically weak persons in performing their daily activities. The proposed exoskeleton assists not only the motion of the user but also the perception of the user by using sensors. In the proposed power-assist method, the assisted user’s motion can be modified based on the environmental information obtained by the sensors if problems are found in the user’s motion. The effectiveness of the proposed concept is evaluated by performing experiments.
