Cyberdyne’s HAL exoskeleton is being tested in hospitals

HAL-headerAn offshoot of Professor Sankai’s work at Tsukuba University, Cyberdyne’s HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) robotic exoskeletal walk assist technology is being tested with real life old people. The system detects the angle of the hip, knee, and ankle joints, and sensors attached to the skin monitor nerve impulses from the brain to the muscles so the system is ready when an action, such as walking or standing are about to take place. It is expected that robotic exoskeletons such as HAL (and related DARPA initiatives) will help nurses lift bedridden patients and soldiers carry their gear in the near future.

    我不认为这将允许以步行或立即运行,但不幸的是。然而,在未来,我相信有可能。现在,最好的办法是“站立轮椅” 。
