Based on new findings from human communications research, which show that in a social environment robots are accepted only if they are able to perform natural human movement, this contribution presents a new approach to improve the development process of humanoid robot prototypes under the term of social acceptance. Using the examples of the human shoulder- and the human hip-movement, there will be examined how the concept of re-engineering can be introduced at humanoid robot development in early stage. It is demonstrated how the inclusion of knowledge about the anatomic basis of human movement can help to overcome major problems of acceptance currently discussed by the literature under the term Uncanny Valley.
