This paper presents the design and simulation of a cyclic robot for lower-limb exercise robots. The robot is designed specifically for cyclic motions and the high power nature of lower-limb interaction-as such, it breaks from traditional robotics wisdom by intentionally traveling through singularities and incorporating large inertia. Such attributes lead to explicit design considerations. Results from a simulation show that the specific design requires only a reasonably sized damper and motor.
