Japanese HAL exoskeleton enters the world market




Japanese HAL exoskeleton enters the world market 4 March 2013


Japanese company Cyberdyne Incorporated is going to start selling its global exoskeleton «Hybrid Assistive Limb» (or just HAL ), about which we wrote back in 2011. The main objective of this exoskeleton – the most paralyzed people to make life easier and allow them to literally walk again.

The most interesting thing about HAL is that the exoskeleton is controlled by human brain waves. It is equipped with a variety of different sensors that read the signals of the nerves and muscles. In other words, the thought of “going forward” – and the exoskeleton will go forward. In this function it is, of course, not limited. He makes it easy to lift heavy things pretty while without using your own muscles.

Cyberdyne said that since 2010, it has already released 330 such exoskeletons. At the moment they are distributed among 150 hospitals in Tokyo and its suburbs. What is interesting, the company does not force them to buy. Exoskeleton can just rent. Annual rental cost in need in 1950 dollars.

Higher intelligence recommends:

The Japanese have created a new exoskeleton
The Japanese introduced “smart” energy management system
Japan built a pilot house for a cold climate
