Neurodegenerative Rehabilitation with Cyberdyne HAL

HAL is the world’s first advanced robotic treatment device shown to improve a patient’s ability to walk.

Competing with new and advanced technology is very crucial in healthcare. Cyberdyne treatment in India is one such feather in the cap of the medical industry. Therefore, your mobility journey starts with The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL. 

E.g.-In a spinal cord injury, the brain-muscle connection is disrupted. The HAL exoskeleton detects any faint bioelectric signals between the brain and the skin surface above the muscles and converts that signal into muscle movement.

Principles of The Wearable Cyborg

Neurodegenerative disorders usually get worse over time and have no cure. They may be genetic or caused by a tumour or stroke.

HAL follows a specific pattern in the treatment…

  • Think – The brain generates command signals. It then transmits necessary signals through the nerves to the muscles during a body’s movement
  • Send Signals – The muscles now receive the command. Each muscle contracts to generate power when it receives the appropriate command signal sent from the brain through the nerves.
  • Read Signals – Signals sent to the muscles by the brain trickle onto the skin surface as very faint bioelectric signals. HAL sensors are placed on the surface of the skin to detect these bio-electrical signals and recognize what kind of movement the wearer wants to make.
  • Move – HAL moves as the wearer intends. HAL controls the power units at each joint based on these bio-electrical signals and allows the wearer to perform the desired movements with their voluntary commands.
  • Feedback – Information is finally sent back to the brain. When HAL has assisted the intended movements, the feeling is fed to the brain.

This is how the brain can learn to emit necessary signals for “walking” gradually. It leads to “the important first step” in walking the physically challenged individual without being assisted by HAL. HAL is the only robot that can provide appropriate solutions for the motion of the brain.

The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL functions under the motor intention of the wearer and internal ideal movement patterns as if it were a part of the body. This Progressive Neurodegenerative disease would result in the reconnection of the CNS to the motor units and the reconnection of motor neurons to muscle fibres.

Even if the muscles barely function, the sensory receptors such as those found in muscle spindle fibers get activated by the device’s movement, and the sensory information is fed back to the brain in real-time.

Patient Samantha’s Testimonial –

I feel more mobile than ever since Cyberdyne. Today is my last day walking with Cyberdyne Hall at Brooks Rehabilitation. I have made big clinical improvements compared to when I just started. Thanks for getting me more confident to be on my feet and more physically active.’
