It is expected that by the years 2025 ours will becomes a super-aged society because people’s lifetimes will be extend by advances in medical treatment, and consequentry the number of the disabled and elderly people with the sicknesses and disabilities will increases. Therefore, the development of devices that promote an independent lifestyle for disabled and elderly people is the disired achievement. Herein, our aims is to develope an operable support device for the arm in which the artificial muscle actuator and gas spring assists in producing power according to the degree of an individuals muscle power.
