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 capabilities.
The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL® improves functional locomotion in patients with all types of disabilities. The intention to move – triggers bio-electrical signals from the brain that communicate with the muscles that make locomotion possible. Such signals from disabled patients may be too weak to trigger proper movement.
In such situations, Cyberdyne HAL® senses 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. 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.
Principle of HAL in the treatment of Joint Disabilities:
HAL assists a physically challenged person to move and enables them to exert greater motor energy… The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL®…
- helps individuals across the world regain their ability to walk through the non-invasive BES-sensing technology solution – HAL
- improve mobility wellness for patients with disability and post-accident and post-surgery recovery
- has the ability to move about without outside assistance.
- enhances overall well-being to maintain a high quality of life and independence
When a person moves, signals from the brain to the muscles trickle onto the skin’s surface as very faint bio-electrical signals. HAL can detect these signals and consolidate various information to complete the motion of patients. As a result, a neurological loop of afferent and efferent neurons is established between the brain and muscle through Cyberdyne HAL
- Improvement and increase in mobility
- Decreased need for assistive devices
- Increased walking speed and distance
- Development of musculature
HAL®, Cyberdyne’s – Hybrid Assistive Limb, improves the locomotor activity in patients with disabilities. 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.
Making use of the feedback system inherent in your body, your voluntary movements assisted by Wearable Cyborg™ HAL® will lead to improvements in your gait patterns and walking function even in the chronic stages of the joint disabilities.
Undoubtedly, positive effects have been observed in neuropathic pain, bladder and bowel function, spasticity, the cardiovascular system, joint disabilities and more.
Rehabilitation robots in physical therapy are increasingly used for treating disabilities such as neurological disorders, spinal cord injuries, cerebral palsy, stroke, and gait disorders in general. Exoskeletons increase capabilities; assist locomotion and rehabilitation in general.
Cyberdyne HAL® is considered to be the system that accelerates motor learning of the brain which eventually leads to the neuroplasticity of the brain functions.
Cyberdyne Treatment provides advanced neuro-robotic rehabilitation technologies for the well-being of patients around the world. Our mission is to empower individuals to walk on their own using HAL, our non-invasive technology solution
