Abstract

The paper describes an experimental method for the estimation of the orientation and moment-measurement accuracy of the robot Roto.Bit3D, designed for the evaluation and rehabilitation of balance disorders in adults. The method is based on the use of an optoelectronic system and a calibrated reference mass. The results allowed to estimate a maximum difference between measurements, performed by motion capture and robot, of about ±0.1° and ±1 Nm, for orientation and moment, respectively. Results are in agreement with the previous version of the robot, designed for pediatrics, already characterized with a different experimental method.
