Revolutionary Robotic Treatment For Patients With Spinal Cord Injuries Now Available In United States

And other countries, HAL fits to the patient's lower limbs and trunk, and operates using internal signals from the body. This powered lower extremity exoskeleton is unique from any other exoskeleton treatment available today because the device's movements are neurologically-controlled by the patient's volition, and use of its secondary Biofeedback Device features allows the patient to see and adjust the signals they are producing. This functional integration of human neural pathways with modern technology is a landmark advancement for SCI patients nationwide.

How It Works:

Sensors attach to the patient's lower extremities. When the patient intends to move, muscles receive nerve signals from the brain, and faint bio-electrical signals are detected on the skin's surface. HAL uses sensors to detect these signals and assists with desired movements, while also enhancing strength and stability. Active use of neural pathways for voluntary
