This paper proposes a new approach of mechanical power factor analysis for evaluating human active motion. The mechanical power factor is affected by the motion trajectory of an evaluation object. Therefore, in active motion, unified evaluation is difficult using the conventional analysis method. In this study, the power factor evaluation of active motion is realized by applying the perturbation from the evaluation system and using its frequency component for power factor calculation.
