Abstract

McKibben actuator is well known as an artificial muscle because it realizes contraction force and displacement with high energy density. Therefore mechanical engineers have been applied the actuators to biomimetic robots, power assisting wear mechanisms and so on. Generally, "one" actuator has been used as "one" artificial muscle. Namely, if one artificial muscle of 10mm in diameter is necessary, one actuator of 10mm in diameter has been utilized.
