    Summary:In the rehabilitation of knee joints, it is necessary to bend the knee joint using medical devices or the patient's own muscle for recovery of the joint's range of motion and the muscles in the knee. A continuous-passive-motion device (CPM) has been widely used in joint recovery to aid in regaining the joint's range of motion. However, this treatment does not effectively bring about muscle recovery because the patients do not bend their knees by themselves. Adding an active training mode that trains the patient's muscle would therefore improve recovery. Thus, a load control system comprising a position controller and a load model was developed. The load model determines the optimal training load to induce muscle recovery and identifies the target position for the position controller. This paper details a design of a novel controller and demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed muscle training mode.

    Summary:Low-impact casters are of great importance in realizing low-crash and anti-vibration carts for a range of purposes. Here the principle of center of percussion is efficiently applied to a caster in order to suppress the transfer of crash forces to the cart from the caster. Excellent performance of this force suppression has been confirmed previously by both simulation and experiments in a single-caster cart. However, carts in real-life applications usually require four sets of casters. In this context, a mathematical model of a cart with four sets of low-impact casters was formulated. In this paper, the modeling a four-caster cart, and simulations for the cart passing over a bump are discussed.

    Summary:Parallel wire type positioning systems, which consist of several tensioned wires in the plane, have many practical applications in industrial fields. However, the conventional systems are easy to vibrate in the direction perpendicular to the wire plane, and this problem limits the use of the system, in spite of a lot of their advantages. For this reason, a new parallel wire type positioning system with a vibration suppression mechanism (tuned mass damper: TMD) is developed in this study. However the TMD is effective only for the object with a constant resonance frequency, whereas the parallel wire systems generally have a variable resonance frequency depending on the wire tensions. Therefore, authors have developed new technique which can control both the position (attitude) and the natural frequency of the object simultaneously. This paper first describes the detail of the proposed technique, then effectiveness of the technique is verified through several experiments. © 2012 The Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.

    Summary:Recently, high-resolution measurement instruments such as probe microscopes have been used widely, since their price is getting lower, and their size is becoming smaller. Therefore, these measurement instruments have been used in various environments. However, to use these instruments effectively, it is important to isolate the environmental vibration transmitted to the instruments. For this reason, we are developing new built-in type multi-axis vibration isolation devices equipped with inertia force generators (IFG). In designing this vibration isolation device, modal analysis and "direct inertia force control (DIFC)" are used. DIFC is the newly developed design method for the vibration control systems proposed by authors. Combination of modal analysis and DIFC can make the complex control system design process simple and clear. In this paper, we show how the controller is designed, and also discuss the effectiveness of the method by experiment.
