#710. The world recognise Robot Suit “HAL” as a medical equipment !

     “HAL” is the world’s first cyborg-type robot to improve a wearer’s bodily functions.

As a medical device, “HAL” is in the center of attention because it could help people with physical difficulties because of damaged cerebral nerve cell. “HAL” has already won approval as a medical device in EU nations. In Germany, its use is covered by publicly-administered labor accidents insurance regarding it as a treatment of recovering patients’ body functions. Persistent use of “HAL” might allow regeneration of the network between the nervous and musculoskeletal systems, which could lead to functional recovery.
