  • Towards standard test artefacts for synchronous tracking of

      Abstract: A repeatable evaluation of human-exoskeleton kinematics is needed to assess an exoskeleton's impact on worker biomechanics and safety. Standard measurement methods and metrics facilitate technology adoption and effective specification of the exoskeleton's intended use. This study assesses the feasibility and repeatability of a measurement method that enables synchronous tracking of human and exoskeleton kinematics using a set of lower-limb human motion capture test artefacts and exoskeleton motion capture plates. Experimental validation was conducted on 30 subjects. The inter-trial repeatability of the human knee joint angle was within 1.2° to 2.7° and within 1.3° to 3.1° for the exoskeleton joint angle (50th to 99th percentile). To apply the measurement of the test artefacts rigid body position and orientation, two potential metrics, human-exoskeleton fit and stability, were implemented based on the exoskeleton-human alignment offset and the stability of the exoskeleton frame.

      Abstract: There are several methods to simulate the human-exoskeleton interface but there is insufficient evidence regarding the choice of the method. This work compares two rigid-body methods to simulate the interface: 1) optimisation-based contact forces; 2) reaction forces at a point on the interface. Additionally, a method to kinetically align the human-exoskeleton joint axes is presented. A single subject tested an active lower limb exoskeleton in stair ascent. The biomechanical outputs were compared to a baseline model, where the measured assistive and ground reaction forces were applied directly to the human model. Both methods showed negligible differences in knee compression force, knee flexion moment, and vastus lateralis activation. However, the ankle outputs showed some differences between the methods. Computationally expensive contact forces provided six-axis interface forces unlike reaction forces, which were limited to the number of constraints required by the exoskeleton. Future studies could compare rigid-body and viscoelastic models.

  • DHM supported assessment of the effects of using an exoskeleton during
           work

      Authors: Francisco Garcia Rivera, Dan Högberg, Maurice Lamb, Estela Perez Luque
      Pages: 231 - 246
      Abstract: Recently, exoskeletons have been gaining popularity in many industries, primarily for supporting manual assembly tasks. Due to the relative novelty of exoskeleton technologies, knowledge about the consequences of using these devices at workstations is still developing. Digital human modelling (DHM) and ergonomic evaluation tools may be of particular use in this context. However, there are no standard integrations of DHM and ergonomic assessment tools for assessing exoskeletons. This paper proposes a general method for evaluating the ergonomic effects of introducing an exoskeleton in a production context using DHM simulation tools combined with a modified existing ergonomic assessment framework. More specifically, we propose adapting the Assembly Specific Force Atlas tool to evaluate exoskeletons by increasing the risk level threshold proportionally to the amount of torque that the exoskeleton reduces in the glenohumeral joint. We illustrate this adaptation in a DHM tool. We believe the proposed methodology and the corresponding workflow can be helpful for decision-makers and stakeholders when considering implementing exoskeletons in a production environment.

  • Auditory movement feedforward for a lower-limb exoskeleton device (AIDER)
           to increase transparency

      Abstract: A lower-limb exoskeleton (LLE) is a device intended to assist patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) with standing and walking in daily life. Due to the lack of proprioception in lower limbs, SCI patients wearing an LLE need the gait information feedforward from the human-exoskeleton system for walking safety. It is necessary, therefore, to explore how to improve the transparency of LLE systems to help the wearer get gait information from LLE. This study conducted several auditory prompt experiments to determine the most adaptive movement feedforward method to improve transparency for an exoskeleton called AIDER. The results indicated that auditory movement feedforward could remind wearers of the next motion state. Moreover, the subjects felt more secure with auditory movement feedforward than with no feedforward when wearing AIDER.

      Abstract: The accurate fit of upper body exoskeletons is of importance for an efficient physical user support. However, there's a lack of multivariate data and adjustment ranges for proper upper body exoskeleton design. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to provide exoskeleton design-relevant body parameters of men and women as an input to suitable adjustment range for shoulder and back exoskeletons. We identified relevant body parameters for back and shoulder exoskeletons and calculated the upper and lower bounds for males and females by applying the archetypal analysis on a large anthropometric dataset from Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. Based on the archetypes, we identified minimum and maximum limits. These limits were checked for their accommodation level for the original as well as a weighted dataset, representing data for the whole of Germany. In addition, we compared the results of the limits with one dimensional percentile values. The results showed an accommodation for the identified multivariate limits between 87-94% for the different exoskeleton types and gender groups.

      Abstract: Passive upper-extremity exoskeletons may decrease the risk of developing work-related musculoskeletal disorders. This study examined how shoulder muscle forces and biomechanical loads in the glenohumeral and L4-L5 joint changed as different support torque (1.1 Nm-11.2 Nm) and angle settings (60°-120°) of an exoskeleton were simulated during an overhead manual material handling task. Full-body kinematics of 15 grocery workers, who lifted a bread case (7.9 kg) onto shopping shelves (145.5 cm), were captured on site. The kinematic data were used to drive a detailed human-exoskeleton model based on inverse dynamics. Generally, simulations with maximum torque combined with a peak angle setting between 75°-105° reduced L4-L5 compression and anteroposterior shear forces, glenohumeral contact forces and shoulder flexor muscle forces. The exoskeleton therefore, seemed effective for reducing physical exposure during overhead handling. However, maximum torque with the lowest angle setting, 60°, increased musculoskeletal loading, suggesting that not adjusting the exoskeleton properly could be detrimental.

      Abstract: Modern ships have become larger in scale and function, and their complexity has increased considerably. This brings up many difficulties in evacuation and rescue when an emergency occurs. Therefore, effective evacuation and risk methods should be predicted and applied to design, safety training, and education. We have developed a three-dimensional ship evacuation simulator (SES) facilitating the impersonation of evacuees by computer-controlled autonomous bots (agents) that perform risk assessment and continuously calculate route conditions, communicate with neighbouring occupants, determine bottleneck points, and select the best evacuation routes. In this study, we introduce the simultaneous participation of human users and computer-controlled bots as evacuees in gamified multiplayer scenarios by the runtime spawning of 3D elements such as fire and smoke. SES is a game-engine-based simulator with several benefits such as flexible technology and economic feasibility. We believe that realistic and valid results can be obtained by applying SES in evacuation simulation.

      Authors: Gunther Paul, Leyde Briceno
      Pages: 329 - 341
      Abstract: Digital human modelling can be applied to determine skin exposure to sun as a factor in modelling risk of skin cancer. To determine body surface area covered by clothing (BSAC), a variety of garment data must be overlaid with the human model. Two approaches, one based on creation of clothing using MakeHuman add-ons in Blender, and the other based on the import of data are exemplified. Results are compared with data from Zhang (Shah and Luximon, 2019). We found that a scalable library of garment elements, assembled to typical apparel is a feasible way to model clothing. We conclude that valid BSAC could be determined.
