A power-assisted chair is a welfare apparatus that helps the user standing up from a chair. Instead of a mechanical way of assist, a power-assisted chair, which generates assist force in a human friendly manner, has been investigated. The system concept of the power-assisted chair is based on the use of information of standing-up motion. Some techniques to control assist force are summarized in this paper.
