It so happened in our world that paralyzed has much less likely than healthy people. But there are people who violate their existence to this sad trend. For example, Seiji Uchida, commissioned by the establishment of the exoskeleton Hybrid Assisted Limb , allowing once-real people live full, active life.
We are on our website have already told you several times about how existing workers exoskeletons (for example, XOS 2 of Raytheon Company), and about their projects (for example, the exoskeleton Atlas of the Norwegian Erik Lanuzy). Today’s exoskeleton, called Hybrid Assisted Limb, can be attributed just to the fact that it is functioning successfully. Moreover, it is the most successful version of the existing similar devices.
Exoskeleton Hybrid Assisted Limb was ordered by the Japanese on behalf of Seiji Uchida. Twenty-eight years ago he was in a car accident, after which lost the ability to walk, move his legs or even feel them. But this was no end of his normal life, but a new beginning. He appears to Hybrid Assisted Limb led a fairly active life, traveling the world in a wheelchair, but with the exoskeleton on its feet again and was able to conquer those places that a couple of years ago could only dream of. Hybrid Assisted Limb created by a team of Professor Yoshiyuki Sankai in his own laboratory in the suburbs of London. Exoskeleton, this is a really new legs. No, he did not put in place the old, immovable lower extremities. Just the principles of management are similar to the principles of management of other parts of the body. The brain of a person who is put on Hybrid Assisted Limb, gives with the natural bio-electric signals commands and a special device interprets and converts them into motion mechanisms of the exoskeleton.
For greater reliability, Seiji Uchida, yet uses crutches, but is planning to give up – you just get some experience. And the first object, which he conquered with the help of the exoskeleton Hybrid Assisted Limb, was the castle-monastery of Mont Saint-Michel on the Normandy coast of France. Uchida and Sankai dream to begin mass production of the exoskeletons Hybrid Assisted Limb, to tens and hundreds of thousands of paralyzed people around the world again rose to their feet, even in the artificial.
