‘Cyberdyne HAL’ Brings New Hope
Competing with new and advanced technology is very crucial in healthcare. Cyberdyne treatment in India is one such feather in the cap that the medical industry of the country has. Therefore, your mobility journey starts with HAL.
E.g.-In a spinal cord, the brain-muscle connection is disrupted. The HAL exoskeleton detects any faint bio-electric signals between the brain and the skin surface above the muscles and converts that signal into muscle movement. HAL is the world’s first advanced robotic treatment device shown to improve a patient’s ability to walk.
Benefits of HAL
A movement in a person’s body, causes nerve signals to be transmitted from the brain to the muscles via motor neurons, causing the entire musculoskeletal system to move. Just before this movement, light “bio-electrical signals” leak out to the skin’s surface.
HAL can read these signals and control the power unit to assist joint movement simultaneously with the person. Interactive biofeedback is now promoted in and outside the body between HAL, brain, nervous, and muscular systems. This treatment method’s effect on promoting functions of the lower limb, upper limb, and body trunk is being reported through clinical application.
The functional regeneration technology using HAL is an innovative treatment technology that enables the improvement of human brain-nerve-musculoskeletal functions by activating the body’s self-healing ability that humans are naturally in possession of.
A condition has to be fulfilled before a patient is dressed in the HAL. Because the HAL is just a conversion device, it needs the body of the patient to offer sufficient electrical, which means the nerves connecting the legs of the patient to the brain must still be slightly “alive.”
The artificial limb builds on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The HAL only needs the patient to offer a percentage of the work; from there, the HAL can use the patient’s intentions to produce results.
Treating with HAL: Here are the five steps that HAL follows-
- Anticipate – The brain at first, generates command signals. The brain transmits necessary signals through the nerves to the muscles, during a body’s movement
- Send Signals – The muscles now receive the command. Each muscle contracts to generate power when it receives the appropriate command signal sent from the brain through the nerves.
- Read the Signals – Signals sent to the muscles by the brain trickle onto the skin surface as very faint bio-electric signals. HAL sensors are placed on the surface of the skin to detect these bio-electrical signals and recognize what kind of movement the wearer wants to make.
- Movement – HAL moves as the wearer intends. HAL controls the power units at each joint based on these bio-electrical signals and allows the wearer to perform the desired movements with their voluntary commands.
- Response – Information is finally sent back to the brain. When HAL has properly assisted the intended movements, the feeling is fed to the brain.
The HAL Robo Suits make a positive difference in the life of a patient affected by stroke and paralysis. “This is the world’s first Wearable Cyborg™ or Robo suit.
When a person tries to move the body, a signal is transmitted from the brain to the muscles through the nerves according to the intention of movement, and at that time, a weak bioelectric potential signal leak to the body’s surface. HAL detects the wearer’s bioelectric potential signal leaks with a sensor attached to the skin and realizes the action according to the intention,”
Here is a testimonial from one of our patients-
Samantha says: ‘I feel more mobile than ever since Cyberdyne. Today is my last day walking with Cyberdyne Hall at Brooks Rehabilitation. I have made big clinical improvements compared to when I just started. Thanks for getting me more confident to be on my feet and more physically active.’
