New Robotic Treatment For Patients With Spinal Cord Injuries Now Available In United States! 

Humans meet machines in the future of spinal cord injury rehabilitation with HAL, short for Hybrid Assistive Limb. HAL is the world’s first advanced robotic treatment device shown to improve a patient’s ability to walk. By fitting to a patient’s lower limbs and trunk, HAL operates using neurologically-controlled signals from the body. Treatment interventions with HAL have been shown to improve a patient’s ability to walk.

Medical HAL has been used in Japan, Germany and other countries and has recently been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. It is now available for the first time ever in the United States at the Brooks Cybernic Treatment Center in Jacksonville, FL.
