In this article, we propose a standing-up motion support system for elderly people and physically-handicapped persons, which make the comfortable and stable human posture change based on physical and motion characteristic. This system applies physical characteristics of the user to the human body model based on Kinaesthetics which is introduced into the field of nursing in these days. Effectiveness of a human support system is evaluated by using joint torque and PHM (Posture Holding Moment). We demonstrate the effectiveness of standing-up motion support system by using these evaluating measure.
