Piyavate-Zignature Robotics on Thailand’s First HAL Cyborg Rehabilitation Facility
May 29th, 2020 14:00-15:00 Piyavate Hospital 16th Floor
We learned about the HAL® in 2015.
Then, we imported this technology into Thailand and started to regain the joy of walking again to many people who can not walk.
The HAL was developed by CYBERDYNE,INC. based in Japan.
This company was established in June, 2004, in order to disseminate the research result of Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai, University of Tsukuba, for the benefit of public.
HAL is a new technology that has already been successful in many countries including Japan.
We, Zignature Robotics, have a strong partnership with Cyberdyne to introduce HAL to Thailand as quickly as possible, and to bring smiles to people with Thailand's advanced and understood hospitals and rehabilitation centres.
HAL®, or Hybrid Assistive Limb is known to be the the world's first cyborg-type robot, designed to improve, assist, expand and regenerate the wearer's physical function.
The most significant feature of HAL® is its control system called "Cybernic Voluntary Control". This control system enables HAL® to provide motor assistance, based on the signal generated when the wearer tries to move his/her body. While there are several application of HAL® that is used for different purpose such as HAL® Lumber Type, which is a device that protects the worker from serious back injuries or back pain, it is the best known for HAL® for Medical use.
Even if the patient is unable to generate enough muscle strength to move due to dysfunction, in accordance with the aforementioned system, this HAL® is able to assist the patient to repeatedly realize actual movement that is in sync with the motion intent of the brain without placing excessive burdens on the brain, nerves and muscular system.
The world’s first robotic remedial device that leads to the possibilities to walk again.
