Abstract
Biodynamic feedthrough (BDFT) refers to a phenomenon where vehicle accelerations feed through the human body, causing involuntary limb motions, which may cause involuntary control inputs. Many studies have been devoted to mitigating BDFT effects. In the current paper, the effectiveness of a simple, cheap and widely-used hardware component is studied: the armrest. An experiment was conducted in which the BDFT dynamics were measured with and without armrest for different levels of neuromuscular admittance (i.e., different settings of the limb dynamics). The results show that the effect of the armrest on BDFT dynamics varies, both with frequency and neuromuscular admittance.
