Cyberdyne HAL Helps Improve Mobility in Patients

The “Wearable Cyborg™ HAL is the only robot that can provide appropriate solutions for the motions of the brain. 

Cyberdyne treatment with The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL [Hybrid Assistive Limb] improves ambulatory function in patients with progressive muscular dystrophy. By using HAL, we can avoid providing excessive load and fatigue on the neuromuscular system. The brain can therefore learn to emit necessary signals for “walking”.

“Wearable Cyborg™ helps improve walking ability by enhancing muscle strength.

HAL controls the power unit according to the movements it recognizes to assist the wearer in moving according to his or her intentions or even exerting more force than usual. HAL has two types of control systems that can be used together according to the conditions of the wearer.

This leads to “the important first step” in walking the physically challenged individual without being assisted by HAL

Cyberdyne HAL is a robot that can supplement or improve the user’s physical capabilities, particularly for people who have physical mobility difficulties. By monitoring the user’s center of gravity and direction of movement, HAL improves the user’s physical mobility. 

Treatment with HAL

The HAL therapy aims increasingly activate muscle impulses and with this enable an interactive neuronal feedback loop. The therapeutic successes are a result of this feedback effect. Within the course of the training, the ability to walk is improved as regular repetition helps patients to regain their motion patterns.

Neuromuscular feedback therapy leads to a significant gain in muscular strength. Other effects which can be more or less pronounced include: Reduction of neuropathic pains, positive improved spasticity symptoms, and larger areas with skin sensation resulting in a lower decubitus risk.

Patients [affected with muscular dystrophy] continuing to actively use their regained mobility in everyday life will retain the progress they have made by the end of the neuromuscular feedback therapy. For many patients, it will be possible to walk on crutches, or without crutches.


Cyberdyne treatment provides revolutionary therapies and enhances the quality of life for everyone in need. The purpose of rehabilitation robots in physical therapy is to create an ideal future by developing, and manufacturing innovative Cybernics systems, with a focus on improving medicine, welfare, and daily life.

The key to promoting functional improvement through Cyberdyne Treatment is not just transmitting voluntary command signals from the human brain to the musculoskeletal system via the spinal cord and peripheral nerves, but more so on the return of feedback from the sensation of actual movement to the human brain. 

The regeneration technology using Cyberdyne 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.

The most effective rehabilitation is specific to the skills the patient needs, and of sufficient intensity and duration to truly retrain the nerves and muscles involved.
