This study aims at development of a multi-directional bending mechanism with thin and long body driven by fluidic rubber actuators. Generally bending mechanisms with fluidic rubber actuators can have advantages of smooth and continuous motion, however because of their low stiffness it is difficult to generate high output force. To solve this problem, we have proposed a novel bending mechanism combined with contracting and extending rubber actuators. By bundling rubber actuators with different types, the developed bending mechanism can have the high stiffness. In this report, optimized extending and contracting rubber actuators are made basis on a McKibben actuator, then they are combined to be the bending mechanism. Experimentally stiffness of the mechanism is measured and is compared with a bending mechanism bundled with same motion type actuators. Resulting high stiffness can be recognized by the proposed mechanism. Additionally, a very long bending mechanism, which is 7m in length, is developed and its motion is demonstrated.
