HAL: “Robot Suit HAL (Hybrid Assistive Limb)”

Univ. of Tsukuba

We developed the exo-skeleton type power assist system to realize the walking aid for the gait disorder person.

At the present time, HAL-3 is state of the art power assist system in the world.

Some sensors such as angle sensors, myoelectrical sensors, floor sensors etc. are adopted in order to obtain the condition of the HAL and the operator.

All of the motordrivers, measurement system, computer, wireless LAN, and power supply are built in the backpack.

Using the battery attached on the waist, HAL works as the complete wearable system.
