Cyberdyne – The Hybrid Assistive Robotic Limb – HAL

Cyberdyne is a robot that uses HAL [ Hybrid Assistive Limb] technology and is created to help people who have lost the use of their lower limbs and rediscover the joy of walking. The robotic suit uses the patient’s intention to move the legs.

Moving at pace with the new and advanced technology is quite a must in healthcare. Cyberdyne treatment in India is one such accomplishment that the country’s medical industry has. With the Japanese sponsors taking a great interest in the business of the HAL, India has become the prime destination for all the investments mentioned. 

What are the uses of HAL?

Created for patients with injury to the spinal cord, the Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) will allow patients to experience the joys of standing up or walking by supporting their entire lower skeleton. Since its release in Japan 7 years ago by Cyberdyne Inc., the artificial limb has been helping many disabled patients recover from their injuries. So much so that the Brooks Cybernic Treatment Center in Jacksonville, Florida partnered up with Cyberdyne to make the limb available in the United States.

Here is a clear idea about the Treatment:

Cybernics Treatment uses HAL to improve/regenerate the function of the wearer. The treatment targets spinal cord injury, stroke, neuromuscular diseases, etc.

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, weak bioelectric potential signals leak to the body’s surface. HAL detects the wearer’s bioelectric potential signal with a sensor attached to the skin and realizes the action. The brain sends nerve impulses to the leg muscle.  The sensors on the patient’s skin register these impulses.

Just before the body movement, faint “bio-electrical signals” that reflect a person’s intention leak out to the skin’s surface. HAL can read this signal and control the power unit to assist joint movement in unison with the person. By using HAL, which utilizes the bio-electrical signal that reflects the wearers’ intended motion, interactive biofeedback is promoted in and outside of the body between HAL, brain, nervous system, and muscular system. Cybernics The effect of this treatment method to promote functions of the lower limb, upper limb, and body trunk is being reported through clinical application. 

The key to promoting functional improvement through Cybernics 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 functional improvement/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.


Top universities and rehabilitation clinics trust our sensing technology to achieve rehabilitation breakthroughs every day. Discover how you can utilize Cyberdyne technology to achieve the same.

Our Patient’s Testimonial

Before HAL, I could use a walker but it wasn’t anything practical,” said Howell. “I couldn’t do it on my own. I had to have someone right there with me. Now, it’s easier to stand up on my own with the walker. I’m gaining more confidence on getting around with a walker on my own, in real-life situations, instead of just at therapy.” Working on my walking, and focusing on doing something every day.
