Abstract Walking and sit-to-stand support system, the smart mobile walker, is being developed to help elderly and disabled to live an independent daily life. It comprises almost omnidirectional driving mechanism, sit-to-stand support mechanism, and motion compliance module to control the system. The development and evaluation of basic motion compliance algorithm shows that the algorithm for extraction of user intention from the interaction of the operator and the system determines performance of the system. The required parameters and performance index for improving sit-to-stand function are evaluated by the analysis of force reflection between the operator and the system. Finally, future research topics to improve the performance are addressed
