- Product Type: Rehabilitation Robotics
While many companies have tried to make a successful EEG Exoskeleton for rehabilitation, none succeeded. The initial game plan was to use brain signals taken by an EEG cap. Yet those signals did not seem to be strong enough to move them. Another issue was that the exoskeleton is essentially trying to anticipate your moves to allow for more normalized movement. This often did not go well and caused people to fight with the exoskeleton, which then causes a change in your brain only further causing the exoskeleton to not work right. Muscles would be overused and higher forces would be put on the lower back, causing pain and potential injuries. Exoskeletons used in the military work relatively well but those used in rehabilitation simply do not right now, plus they are overpriced for most to afford.
