Japan’s Cyberdyne to Establish a ‘Cybernic Treatment Centre’ in Florida | #robots #biofeedback #physicaltherapy

TL;DR: powered exoskeleton rehabilitation services.

*Cybernic Treatment is described as “Functional Regenerative Medicine” realized by devices like Medical HAL that are developed using Cybernic Technology, and it is an innovative treatment technology that promotes the functional improvement/regeneration of the brain-nerve-physical systems. Medical HAL establishes interactive biofeedback by moving according to intension-based motion information from the brain-nervous system and activating sensory systems like muscle spindle fibers to form a neural loop between the brain-nerve system and the musculoskeletal system. Even if the patient is unable to generate enough muscle strength to move due to motor dysfunction, the treatment is able to repeatedly realize actual movement that is in sync with the motion intent of the brain while avoiding excessive burden on the brain-nerve-muscle systems, thus making functional improvement/regeneration possible. Clinicians can intervene by tuning the many adjustable parameters related to the patient’s motor and neurological information built into the device, in a way that appropriately circulates the patient’s neurological information through the neural loop between the brain-nerve system and the musculoskeletal system. Treatment with Medical HAL has been approved by the regulatory authorities in Japan and has been listed as a new treatment procedure that is distinct from other traditional rehabilitation procedures, with a different reimbursement price. Cybernic Treatment is not limited to Medical HAL and can be administered by other Medical Cybernic Systems that take on various forms using Cybernic Technology.

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
