Abstract:In this paper a new concept to identify environ- mental loads during the interaction with the human body by sensing interface forces and movement is proposed. Mass and spring loads were moved by hand over a fixed height difference. Kinematic and kinetic quantities were measured between the hand and the load using an instrumented handle. Force was measured using a force transducer module, movement was measured using an accelerometer and rate gyroscope. Under the condition that the human body was actively generating force at the load, while the load was passive, the dynamic characteristics of the load could be estimated. The estimated parameter values were compared to their specified values and appeared to be accurate within 4% for both mass and spring loads.
