“I mean it is great. Especially HAL because I’ve walked in other exoskeletons but with HAL, you’re controlling the robot. Where everything else, you’re trying to adapt and adjust its walking pattern and gait. HAL is 100% you’re controlling it and moving it with any intended movement that you could make.”
