Abstract

This work deals with the study of human postural responses to external perturbations, performed using a novel mechatronic electro-pneumatic system. The device, which must be handled by a clinical operator, has been designed, developed and tested on human subjects. An Hardware-in-the-Loop equipment is designed and developed reproducing the behavior of the operator, the automatic perturbator and the subject. Results underline a good capability of the device to reproduce the reference of the impact force.
