Get to know HAL

Experience the fusion of human and machine

HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb), developed in Japan by Cyberdyne, is the world’s first neuro controlled exoskeleton, primarily used to train, support and enhance the wearer’s strength. This ultimately improves the wearer’s independence and quality of life.

Using electrodes, HAL reads the wearer’s bioelectric signals, interpreting the wearer’s movement intention and working with them to complete movements. This program encourages the development new neural pathways, improving motor and sensory function in some cases.

This might sound complex, but RoboFit’s certified staff have a deep understanding of the technology and know how to use the technology to personalise each session to the wearer’s capabilities and goals.

HAL is the embodiment of modern cybernetics: moving with the wearer, rather than for the wearer.

How moving with HAL works:

Wearing of HAL leads to a fusion of “man”, “robot” and “information”. HAL assists a physically challenged person to move, enabling him or her to perform more motions and exert more strength than previously possible.

First, you go to perform movement. When this happens, your brain sends signals to the desired muscle group to tell it to act.
Receiving the signals, the muscles attempt to move. In a healthy body, this would be where the muscle acts with the intended strength and speed.
Using electrodes, HAL reads the bioelectric signals sent by the brain and determines what movement the wearer intends to perform.

In accordance with the recognised motions, HAL distributes power to the exoskeleton, providing the wearer with the required assistance to complete the action as normal. 

Performing the motions with HAL stimulates neuroplasticity, developing new neural pathways and improving long term motor function.

Who is HAL for?

HAL is primarily designed to rehabilitate individuals currently living with neurological and musculoskeletal conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis or Spinal Cord Injury. Learn more about HAL in use at RoboFit on our services page here.

Other assistive Technology

HAL [Hybrid Assistive Limb] is the world‘s first cyborg-type robot, by which a wearer‘s bodily functions can be improved, supported and enhanced.

Bring to the table win-win survival strategies to ensure proactive domination. At the end of the day, going forward, a new normal that has evolved from generation X is on the runway heading towards a streamlined cloud solution. User generated content in real-time will have multiple touchpoints for offshoring.
