|20120133113||TRANSFER AND LOCOMOTION APPARATUS - Disclosed is a transfer and locomotion apparatus with excellent functionality, stability, versatility, and user-friendliness such that a person requiring nursing care can transfer between the transfer and locomotion apparatus to a bed and a toilet seat, etc., keeping the orientation of the body. The apparatus has a simple structure, is operable by a single person, imposes no strain on the person's back and lumbar part, etc., and can comfortably be used even if the person has injured-spine and so forth. The apparatus comprises a base part having a driving part, a seat part provided on the base part and which a user can sit from a back portion or a side portion, and a breast pad part standing in a front end side of the seat part and contacting a breast of the user. At least one of the seat part and the breast pad part is held to be able to move forward and backward, and upward and downward with respect to the base part.||05-31-2012|
|20090200090||Multiple-point grounding type foot portion supporting mechanism, biped walking robot equipped with the same, and control structrure therefor - The present invention provides a multiple-point grounding type foot portion supporting mechanism having excellent reliability, in which the respective supporting points passively follow unevenness of the grounding surface such as a road surface, and which is capable of quickly supporting foot bottoms at polygonal points and preventing falling over even on a grounding surface having level differences by fixing the supporting points when all supporting points are grounded. The multiple-point grounding type foot portion supporting mechanism includes: base portions each disposed on the foot bottom of the foot portion of a walking robot; three or more foot bottom supporting portions each having its one end part disposed and protruding downward from the bottom face of the base portion, each of which independently moves upward when being grounded and is slidably or rotatably supported; grounding sensors each disposed at the base portion or the foot bottom supporting portion, which detect grounding of the respective foot bottom supporting portions; and lock mechanisms disposed at the base portion, which control and brake the movements of all foot bottom supporting portions when the grounding sensors detect grounding of all foot bottom supporting portions.||08-13-2009|
|20080252247||Quadruped Walking Robot - The present invention provides a quadruped walking robot the production costs and weight of which can be reduced by reducing the number of driving portions, and which is capable of carrying out stabilized walking motions even with the degree of freedom reduced in the leg portions.||10-16-2008|
