HAL®for Medical Use - Lower Limb Model [European Model] is a medical device for people who have disorders in the lower limb and people whose legs are weakening, to allow them movement in their lower body. It is made to aid people with limited mobility enhance their existing physical capabilities. Designed by Cyberdyne Corporation in Japan, and created to "upgrade the existing physical capabilities of the human body." Whenever individuals try to make a move, the brain sends nerve signals to the muscles. The robotic suit then identifies these weak signals from the surface of the human skin with the help of a sensor that is attached on the wearer's skin. Then the signal is transmitted to HAL's power unit, signaling the unit to start moving in harmony with the limb of the wearer. HAL can help a person to perform every day tasks like walking, climbing up and down stairs and even lifting heavy objects.
With the freely detachable controller of HAL®, the operator can manipulate all the operations, such as start/stop of assistance, alteration of settings and confirmation of motion statuses, closely watching the move of the wearer. Tailor-made assistance for individual wearers makes training with HAL® for Medical Use - Lower Limb Model more effective.
