HAL can be used in various fields, too

Apart from providing medical support, HAL therapy can also be applied for use in various fields, including assistance in task support, as well as assistance in the welfare field.

Assistance in task support include HAL for Whole Body and HAL for Disaster Recovery, both of which are in the stage of research and development. HAL for Whole Body works by supporting whole bodily functions, ranging from the upper limbs to the lower limbs. It uses human judgment to maximize human power so that it can be applied in various fields. HAL for Disaster Recovery works by assisting human activity in disaster recovery sites. Its structure is modified in a way that allows it to easily be put on and taken off and it is operable under all types of weather.
