Rehabilitative Technology refers to tools, equipment, or products that can help people with long-term physical impairments.

Disabilities are disorders, diseases, health conditions, or injuries that affect a person’s physical, intellectual, or mental well-being and functioning. Rehabilitative and assistive technologies can help people with disabilities function better in their everyday lives. 

The term “Rehabilitative Technology” refers to aids that help people recover their functioning after injury or illness. “Assistive technologies” may be as simple as a magnifying glass to improve vision or as complex as a digital communication system.

The technologies are made possible through rehabilitative engineering research, which applies engineering and scientific principles to study how people with disabilities function in society. It includes studying barriers and designing solutions so that people with disabilities can interact successfully in their environments.

For this, The Robotic Suit HAL by Cyberdyne, the Lightforce lasers, and Vibramoov are the approved leading systems that trap the electrical signals of the brain via the skin surface of the lower limbs and support them in a motorised manner. The movement is thus a controlled activity deliberately desired by the patient. 

Uses of the Rehabilitative Technology

  • The technology assists a physically challenged person to move and enables him or her to exert greater motor energy…
  • The therapy helps individuals across the world regain their ability to walk through the non-invasive BES-sensing technology solution, which means the ability to move without outside assistance
  • It is used to improve mobility wellness for patients with disabilities and post-accident and post-surgery recovery, enhancing overall well-being to maintain a high quality of life and independence.

Rehabilitative Technology helps with

  • Functional improvement and increase in mobility
  • Reduced need for assistive devices
  • Increased walking speed and distance
  • Development of musculature

Benefits of The Leading Rehabilitative Technologies

The Hybrid Assistive Limb – HAL is the world‘s first cyborg-type robot that can improve, enhance, and support the wearer’s bodily functions and physical capability. 

Cyberdyne HAL can sensor faint BES that trickle onto the skin, process it, and simultaneously assist one’s desired movement with motors located on each hip and knee joint. More importantly, the brain receives feedback from the target muscle through the sensory system and learns how to move the legs correctly after repetition of dedicated HAL gait training.

  • Vibramoov Technology

Vibramoov Therapy empowers individuals to walk on their own using the non-invasive technology solution. It provides advanced neuro-robotic rehabilitation technologies for the well-being of patients around the world. 

  • Lightforce Laser Therapy

Another advanced technology that uses light waves to increase blood flow to the affected area. This neuro-rehab device helps the patients move their paralysed legs based on their intention and the device does not dictate its movements on its own.
