Stroke Rehabilitation with Cyberdyne HAL

Stroke is among the leading causes of acquired disability around the world. The medical field has seen considerable changes in the last few years, but, with the numerous breakthrough in technology, healthcare has reached new heights. 

The Hybrid Assistive Limb, HAL- is the world‘s first technology that enhances and regenerates the wearer’s physical functions according to the wearer’s intentions. Because of this feature, it is also called “Wearable Cyborg“.

Use of Cyberdyne HAL in stroke rehabilitation

-HAL is used in the treatment of various diseases.

-It’s made to fit all individuals.

-It’s controlled by the wearer’s intent.

-A powerful companion that supports the road to independence

The HAL Therapy-

Intelligent, motor-driven devices for rehabilitation, or rehabilitation robotics, represent an exciting frontier with considerable potential to address the concerns.

Cyberdyne Treatment uses HAL to restore the functions of the wearer. HAL improves the function of the wearer. HAL targets spinal cord injury, stroke, neuromuscular diseases, and more. The effect of this treatment method to promote functions of the lower limb, upper limb, and body trunk is reported through clinical applications. 

How HAL works…

The brain sends a signal to the muscle to command the movement made by an individual. At that time, a very faint signal that reflects the wearer’s intention to move appears on the skin’s surface. Using its sensors attached to the skin’s surface, HAL detects these so-called “bio-electrical signals” to perform the desired movements with the wearer’s voluntary commands.

Cyberdyne’s Robotic device is well-suited to assist in this area, based on HAL’S ability to carry out simple, repetitive tasks with consistency. Robots can be programmed to guide a patient through a series of specific motions while maintaining a prescribed level of support and restricting undesired (or contraindicated) movements.

Rehabilitation robots in physical therapy ensure that exercises are performed properly. They often help to support the patient’s body weight so that patients can participate for longer periods before tiring. They measure improvements and provide objective reporting and assessment.

Cyberdyne treatment provides advanced stroke rehabilitation technologies for the well-being of patients around the world. HAL is also considered the system that accelerates motor learning of the brain which eventually leads to the neuroplasticity of the brain functions. 

The purpose of HAL is to create an ideal future by researching, developing, and manufacturing innovative Cybernics systems, with a focus on improving medicine, welfare, and daily life. An important part of robotic technology research in Cyberdyne treatment is involved with ‘lower extremity rehabilitation. 

When HAL completes assisting the intended movement, the feeling is fed back to the brain. Active use of the neural pathways for voluntary movement with physical feedback to the brain leads to an important ability for the wearer to walk on their own.

Patient Testimonial-

In 2013, Rody was caught in a car accident, resulting in spinal cord injury levels C6 and C7. This injury caused him to have difficulty in standing and walking. However, things changed when he was admitted to Pusat Rehabilitasi PERKESO in the year 2019 and started to receive Cyberdyne Lower Limb treatment. After 6 months of Cyberdyne treatment, now he can stand and walk again using the walker. What’s more exciting is that Rody is now back to work!
