3391 Robot Suit HAL

I would like to introduce a progressive technology. It is a robot suit called HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb) which was developed by Japan’s Tsukuba University and the robotics company CYBERDYNE. It is shaped like a body suit. So by wearing this machine, you can boost, assist, and extend the body functions.

Then, let me explain how it is operated. First, people with physical disabilities have to wear it. And HAL reads signals to muscles through the nerves from brains. The signals leak out from the skin surface as the very weak “bio-signals.” HAL reads the signals, and controls the power unit as you wish. It can give a larger power, or assist the movement the way you want it to.

In short, HAL is very useful in welfare, medical-care industry, and disasters.
