The Hybrid Assistive Limb – HAL is the world‘s first cyborg-type robot that can improve, enhance and support the wearer’s bodily functions and physical capability. The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL [The Hybrid Assistive Limb] improves functional locomotion in patients with any type of disability.
Our intention to move – triggers bio-electrical signals from the brain that communicate with the muscles that make locomotion possible. Such signals from paralysed or disabled patients may be too weak to trigger proper movement.
Cyberdyne HAL can sensor faint BES that trickle onto the skin, process it, and simultaneously assist one’s desired movement with motors located on each hip and knee joint. More importantly, the brain receives feedback from the target muscle through the sensory system and learns how to move the legs correctly after repetition of dedicated HAL gait training.
Uses of Cyberdyne Technology—
HAL assists a physically challenged person to move and enables him or her to exert greater motor energy…
- The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL, helps individuals across the world regain their ability to walk through the non-invasive BES-sensing technology solution – HAL
- Cyberdyne HAL Lower Limb is used to improve mobility wellness for patients with disability and post-accident and post-surgery recovery
- The BES-sensing technology is used for Mobile wellness, which means the ability to move about without outside assistance.
- Enhances overall well-being to maintain a high quality of life and independence
When a person moves, signals from the brain to the muscles trickle onto the skin’s surface as very faint bio-electrical signals. HAL can detect these signals and consolidate various information to complete the motion of patients. As a result, a neurological loop of afferent and efferent neurons is established between the brain and muscle through Cyberdyne HAL.
Cyberdyne Treatment with HAL helps with…
- Functional improvement and increase in mobility
- Reduced need for assistive devices
- Increased walking speed and distance
- Development of musculature
An important part of robotic technology research in Cyberdyne treatment is involved with ‘lower extremity rehabilitation.
HAL, Cyberdyne’s – Hybrid Assistive Limb, improves the locomotor activity in patients with disabilities. This neuro-rehab device helps the patients move their paralysed legs based on their intention and the device does not dictate its movements on its own.
Using the feedback system inherent in your body, your voluntary movements assisted by Wearable Cyborg™ HAL will lead to improvements in your gait patterns and walking function even in the chronic stages of the disease. Furthermore, positive effects have been observed in neuropathic pain, bladder and bowel function, spasticity, mental health, and the cardiovascular system.
Exoskeletons/Rehabilitation robots in physical therapy are increasingly used for treating disabilities such as neurological disorders, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, stroke, and gait disorders in general. Exoskeletons increase capabilities; assist locomotion and rehabilitation in general.
At Cyberdyne, we provide advanced neuro-robotic rehabilitation technologies for the well-being of patients around the world. Our mission is simple – we empower individuals to walk on their own using HAL, our non-invasive technology solution
