The pneumatic artificial muscles are used as driving elements of mobile, anthropomorphic, bionic and humanoid robots as well as rehabilitation and physiotherapeutic manipulators. The PAMs are also increasingly used for the automation of industrial processes. The article presents test stands and methods used to determine the static, isobaric, isotonic and isometric characteristics of the new pneumatic artificial muscles. The muscles have been designed and developed at the Kielce University of Technology. Comparative tests of technical parameters of the designed muscle with the muscles available on the market have been performed.
