HAL® brings top athletes to learn how to relax their muscles through neurosensing technology. Being able to balance muscle contraction and relaxation is what separates the world’s top athletes from semi-professional athletes.
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 this process.
A Japanese company created this robot that could help people who lost the use of their lower limbs and rediscover the joy of walking. Cyberdyne treatment in India is the latest technology.
Benefits of HAL in Athletes-
Oftentimes, top athletes trust outside tools and technologies to continuously improve. For top athletes, the Wearable Cyborg™ HAL can provide multiple types of immediate feedback that can only be experienced through HAL.
For instance, the HAL® device itself provides physical feedback, reacting with the slightest contraction of extraneous muscles. This may inform the athlete when there is unnecessary muscle stress that can inhibit them from performing at their full potential.
As another example, HAL may be used to inform the athlete about how their muscles and body are moving, helping them find the optimal posture or stance for better performance.
The Role of HAL® –
During a person’s body movement, he or she first thinks about the motions in his or her brain. By thinking “I want to walk.”, the brain transmits necessary signals to muscles necessary for the motions through the nerves.
In a healthy body, each muscle can receive signals destined from the brain to it and move as strongly and fast as intended. However, in the case of – the Wearable Cyborg™ – HAL, it is done with help of the technology involved in stimulating the nerves.
Signals sent to muscles by the brain leak on the skin surface as very faint signals, so-called “bio-electric signals [BES]”. HAL can read BES by only attaching the originally developed detectors on the surface of the wearer’s skin. By consolidating various information, HAL recognizes what sorts of motions the wearer intends
HAL, as well as man, is also able to process various information recognized by the brain instantly and control the power unit promptly. When the body starts moving, HAL starts moving at the same time. Therefore, HAL can assist the wearer’s motions.
The mechanism to move the human body does not end up with only moving muscles. The brain confirms how the body moves on what sort of signals. When HAL has appropriately assisted the motions of “walking”, the feeling “I could walk!” is fed back to the brain.
In this way, the brain gradually learns how to emit necessary signals for “walking”. This leads to “the important first step” in walking without being assisted by HAL.
HAL® is the only robot that can provide appropriate solutions for the motions of the brain.
