This thesis studies the possibility of energy increase in tape-spring assemblies through stacking, defined as the practice of placing tape-springs on top of each other in parallel. consists of five chapters. Chapter 2 consists of a paper that presents a theoretical approach to stacking of tape-springs, and studies the potential of energy storage...

In Chapter 1, the focus is on the classification of force generators, which is the family of mechanisms to which balancers belong to. The goal of this chapter is to introduce a bottom-up classification method to identify the complete solutions space of transmissions in force generators based on their transfer function. Using this method, spring...

Existing scoliosis braces preclude spinal movement for activities of daily living, which reduces the willingness to wear the brace and treatment success. This work develops a scoliosis brace that meets corrective requirements while retaining patient mobility.<br/>The primary compliance vector (PCV) captures the predominant kinematic degree of...

Rotational electric actuators are the most popular choice for actuation in modern day automation. These actuators are commonly used in combination with a transmission system. In this paper, the development of a new rotational to linear transmission technology, called the ring screw, is described, and its real-world performance is evaluated...

Compliant shell mechanisms utilize spatially curved thin-walled structures to transfer or transmit force, motion or energy through elastic deformation. To design with spatial mechanisms designers need non-linear characterization methods. This work introduces a comprehensive non-linear characterization method and framework which is experimentally...
