Joy of Walking After Degenerative Conditions with the HAL

Cyberdyne’s Wearable Cyborg™ HAL® helps patients experience the joys of standing up and 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 Degenerative Conditions injuries.

Cyberdyne treatment targets degenerative conditions… The functional improvement 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.

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. The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL® detects the wearer’s bioelectric potential signal with a sensor attached to the skin and realises the action. The brain sends nerve impulses to the leg muscle.  The sensors on the patient’s skin register these impulses.

Prior to the movement of the body, faint “bio-electrical signals” that reflect a person’s intention leak out to the skin’s surface. The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL® can read this signal and control the power unit to assist joint movement in unison with the person.

By using HAL® which utilises 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. The effect of this treatment to promote functions of the lower limb, upper limb, and body trunk is being reported through clinical application. 

The importance of 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.

Recovery after Degenerative Conditions

Restoring physical ability with cybernetics therapy is the key. Our intention to move the legs triggers bioelectric signals (BES) from the brain that communicate with the muscles that make locomotion possible. Such signals from paralyzed patients may be too weak to trigger proper movement.

Top universities and rehabilitation clinics trust Cyberdyne’s sensing technology to achieve rehabilitation breakthroughs every day for all neuro disabilities like Degenerative Conditions. Discover how you can utilise Cyberdyne technology to achieve the same…

Our Patient’s Testimonial

Before HAL, I could use a walker but it wasn’t anything practical because of Degenerative Conditions,” 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.
