The purpose of this study is to build a relatively complete human walking kinematic model. This model is combined with the rolling-foot model (lower limb) and multi-rod swinging model (upper limb) connected by COM. We calculated the velocity of COM and other critical joints of the upper limb by marker point capture experiment using the high-speed camera. This research shows that the hand joint velocity measured through the experiment can achieve high coincidence with that calculated by the theoretical model given specific inputs. Moreover, the common pattern of upper limb angles is also studied for an accurate description. The proposed kinematic model is expected to forecast desired motion intention for better compliance by the rehabilitation and assistive robots.
