We have confirmed from human arm movement measurement on the sagittal plane that the highest position in the vertical direction where the hand passes through changes according to the motion duration. In this paper, we propose an estimation algorithm of the position where the hand passes through according to the variation in the motion duration. We add the algorithm into the hardware of the trajectory formation model, i.e., the forward inverse relaxation model, which is the trajectory formation model based on the minimum commanded torque change criterion. Finally, we show that the model can reproduce the same trajectories as the human trajectories at various motion durations on the sagittal plane.
