Already several hundred patients underwent the therapy using the bionic HAL® skeleton. These were patients with incomplete spinal cord injury, after stroke and with different types of muscle diseases.
Rehabilitation increases independence of the patient, in particular improves the walking ability and the strength of muscle groups of the lower limbs as well as improves balance and gait pattern.
As demonstrated by research the HAL® therapy:
– increases walking speed
– reduces the need to use rehabilitation equipment
– improves the superficial sensation
– reduces spasticity
– reduces neuropathic pain
– stimulates the cortical areas of the brain
It is important that after completion of the therapy with neuromuscular biofeedback its effects remain stable, of course, provided that the patient actively uses acquired capabilities in everyday life.
