The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL is a new technology under the treatment that uses Robotics to operate. The use of a Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) to assist the patient is used in the treatment process. This technology is based on the new concept of IoT technology. Cyberdyne Treatment improves and restores the neurological functions of the user. HAL improves locomotor activity in stroke, spinal cord injury and other neurological diseases.
Features of ‘The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL-
- Sensing neural information to treat neurological conditions
- Active participation in patient-driven neurological rehabilitation
- Empowering patients to walk without HAL after receiving HAL therapy
- HAL therapy is provided by medical professionals
How does HAL Technology Work?
Cyberdyne HAL establishes a healthy loop of signals by following a certain pattern…
The brain sends command signals. When a person tries to move their body, the brain transmits necessary signals through the nerves to the muscles.
The muscles receive the command signals. Each muscle contracts to move its corresponding joint when it receives the appropriate command signal sent from the brain through the nerves. With a spinal cord injury, this pathway is disrupted and the signal is too weak to generate sufficient force.
HAL reads the signals. Signals sent to the muscles by the brain trickle onto the skin surface as very faint bio-electrical signals (BES). HAL is capable of detecting these signals and consolidating this information with other information collected by the device to recognize and complete the intended motion of patients.
HAL moves as the wearer intends. HAL controls the power units at each joint independently based on these BES and allows the wearer to perform the desired movements with their voluntary commands.
Information of movement is sent back to the brain. When HAL has appropriately assisted the intended movement, the feeling is fed back to the brain. As a result, a neurological loop of afferent and efferent neurons is established between the brain and the muscles through HAL. The use of this network of signals to induce neuroplasticity is what we call “interactive bio-feedback”. Active use of these neural pathways for voluntary movement with physical feedback to the brain leads to an improved ability for the wearer to walk on their own.
Recovery with Cyberdyne HAL
The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL senses the neural data to treat neurological conditions. 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.
More Sense in Neurorehabilitation
It makes more sense to utilize neural information captured by HAL to treat neurological conditions. This neurorehab device helps the wearer move limbs based on the signals sent from the brain to the muscle detected through the skin surface, in order to improve ambulatory function in patients with spinal cord injury, stroke and several other neuromuscular diseases.
