Title: MUSCLE-POWER ASSISTANCE DEVICE
Abstract:
A muscle-power assistance device (10) that has: a first mounting fixture (20); a second mounting fixture that can rotate relative to the first mounting fixture (20) around an assist shaft line (d1); an assist mechanism (15) that can restrict the rotation of the second mounting fixture relative to the first mounting fixture in at least one direction around the assist shaft line; a sensor (80) that detects an indicator that is related to the relative rotation of the first mounting fixture and the second mounting fixture around the assist shaft line; and a control unit (13) that controls the assist mechanism (15). If it has been determined that the indicator detected by the sensor has satisfied prescribed conditions over a fixed period, the control unit controls the assist mechanism such that the rotation of the second mounting fixture relative to the first mounting fixture in the one direction is restricted.
