... 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...

... 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...

... 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...
