The Hitachi Central Research Institute and the Hitachi (China) Research Institute had a full friendly exchange with the MileBot’s R & D team on the development of the robot field. Dr. Ye Jing, introduced the research and development and industrialization of medical rehabilitation robot products such as the company and BEAR-H1 to the Hitachi Central Research Institute in detail. The walking effect of real people wearing BEAR-H1 was demonstrated on the spot by the MileBot’s engineer, and the whole walking process was successfully demonstrated.

BEAR-H1 exoskeleton robot is the world’s first exoskeleton robot to use a compliant actuator as its power output. BEAR-H1 has 6 powered joints (bilateral hips, knees, ankles) and hip rotation auxiliary joints to achieve natural gait, suitable for patients between 150-190cm tall and weighing less than 85kg. And its exoskeleton size is adjustable, equipped with a gait monitoring and evaluation system, the physical therapist or family can monitor the patient’s movement data in real time through the touch screen. Dr. Ye Jing said that the BEAR-H1 robot is also equipped with many sensors, which can detect the movement status of the human body in real time. And the AI algorithm developed by MileBot can predict the intention of the human body, such as the speed of the movement, start and stop, left or right leg, etc. These information are collected and used to control the robot.

The director of Hitachi Central Research Institute spoke highly of the product innovation capabilities demonstrated by MileBot Robotics. He was very glad to see that China has such a cutting-edge product in the field of rehabilitation. He was looking forward to in-depth communication and cooperation with the MileBot Robotics.
