Proc. ASME. IDETC-CIE2000, Volume 7A: 26th Biennial Mechanisms and Robotics Conference, 643-651, September 10–13, 2000
Paper No: DETC2000/MECH-14120
... by a single spring. When link and spring masses are considered, rather than just the payload, the latter configuration needs an additional spring or a slight alteration of its structure for complete balance. static balance spring mechanism gravity equilibrator anthopomorphic robot arm arm orthosis...

Proc. ASME. IDETC-CIE2001, Volume 2A: 27th Design Automation Conference, 571-578, September 9–12, 2001
Paper No: DETC2001/DAC-21069
... several gravity equilibrators providing perfect static balance. As opposed to many known solutions, the proposed balancers incorporate normal off-the-shelf springs, rather than the zero-free-length springs (springs with a length equal to zero when not preloaded or loaded externally) usually employed...

Proc. ASME. IDETC-CIE2009, Volume 7: 33rd Mechanisms and Robotics Conference, Parts A and B, 689-700, August 30–September 2, 2009
Paper No: DETC2009-86770
... 30 07 2010 Generally, adjustment of gravity equilibrator to a new payload requires energy, e.g. to increase the pre-load of the balancing spring. A novel way of energy-free adjustment of gravity equilibrators is possible by introducing the concept of a storage spring. The storage...
