MANILA, Philippines – The city government of Manila on Tuesday officially launched its Neurological Rehabilitation Center at the Ospital ng Maynila Medical Center intended for patients with physical therapy needs.

According to Manila Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso, the center is part of the city government’s continuous efforts to improve health services and upgrade medical equipment in district hospitals to further serve its constituents.

The program is in partnership with private firm Robocare Solutions, Inc. from which the local government loaned two sets of three units of Hybrid Assistive Limb (HAL) that is powered by advanced robotic rehabilitation technology. It is the first and only robotic exoskeleton that trains the brains and limbs of a patient to walk again.

HAL is the leading advancement in addressing stroke and other neurologic conditions by helping patients recover their physical mobility.

The machine is programmed to detect faint bio-electric signals on the surface of the skin, which reflects a patient’s intention to move. Using these signals, HAL allows the wearer to perform the desired movements with their voluntary commands. The physical therapist can see these signals and adjust settings on the robot suit to amplify weak signals and focus on desired signals.

The equipment is free to use and is expected to help Manilenyos in their medical needs, specifically those with spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, traumatic brain injury, and progressive intractable neuromuscular diseases.
