Treating Cerebral Palsy with Cyberdyne’s HAL

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.

The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL [The Hybrid Assistive Limb] improves functional locomotion in patients with any type of disability. 

Uses of The Hybrid Assistive Limb ‘HAL-

Cyberdyne treats neuromuscular difficulties with rehabilitation robots in physical therapy and does not tackle the source of the problem, as it makes more sense to utilise neural information captured by Cyberdyne HAL. It helps treat neurological conditions. This neuro-rehab device helps the wearer move limbs based on the signals sent from the brain to the muscle detected through the skin surface, to improve ambulatory function in patients with cerebral palsy and several other neuromuscular diseases.

Treatment by HAL

  • Senses the neural information to treat cerebrovascular conditions
  • Actively participates in patient-driven robotic rehabilitation
  • Empowers patients to walk without HAL after receiving HAL therapy
  • Therapy is provided by medical professionals
  • Is able to provide a variety of exercises other than walking, and works on specific joints.

HAL has two types of control systems that can be used together according to the conditions of the wearer. The “Cybernics Voluntary Control System” uses BES to perform the wearer‘s desired movements. The other is the “Cybernics Autonomous Control System” to realize human-like movements even if the BES cannot be detected. These two control methods are the reason why ‘Cyberdyne’s Hybrid Assistive Limb’ is such an advanced technology.

Recovery for Cerebral Palsy

The “Wearable Cyborg™ HAL is the only robot that can provide appropriate solutions for the motions of the brain.  Cyberdyne treatment provides advanced neuromuscular 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 intention 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.

A crucial 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. 

Our Patient Anderson’s Story-

I was lifting my legs with my hips while walking and not my knees. After 3 months of intense therapy at Cyberdyne in Bochum, I started walking by lifting my knees. I can now walk for longer periods because my walking method has improved. Before going to Cyberdyne, I was walking 10 meters in almost 4 minutes but now it takes me around 50 seconds. 

The Wearable Cyborg™ HAL satisfies the elements by generating sufficient motion assist in response to the wearer’s voluntary drive.
