Recently, many devices driven by pneumatic actuators have been developed. In additions, many researches on pneumatic artificial muscles focusing on characteristics such as flexible operation, light weight and high output have been conducted. These artificial muscles were limited in their application range due to their durability and the necessity of an air pressure source. Therefore, in this research, as another approach apart from the improvement of the air pressure source device, we propose hollow artificial muscle with high efficiency and high durability.
