Development of a Standing-Up Motion Guidance System Using an Inertial Sensor
The standing-up motion consists of (1) a flexion phase, in which the center of gravity (COG) moves forward, and (2) an extension phase, in which COG raises upward. However, because it is difficult for elderly and disabled people to combine both phases, they need to perform each phase individually. Although most people who are unable to stand up are able to raise their COG upward, they are unable to move it forward. Therefore, we proposed a system and evaluated its efficacy in supporting forward COG movement.
