What is curara(R)?
A wearable robot that helps the elderly and those with disabilities to walk. It has a major feature called “synchronization control method” in which humans and robots learn how to walk by matching the rhythm with each other. Therefore, for users, we will assist walking with reasonable strength, speed, and stride length. In addition, by using a dedicated app, walking data before and after training can be measured, and an appropriate exercise program tailored to the individual can be proposed. The overwhelming lightness (2.9 kg for a full set), the ease of wearing, and the fact that it can be used by people with various body types and symptoms are also great advantages.
Background of new model sales start
Since the new product announcement in December last year, curara has received many inquiries and is now being used in various facilities. Many people said that they would like to purchase the product instead of renting it. In order to respond to the voices of everyone, we have decided to start selling a new model.
Due to the corona wreck that has lasted for more than two years, the elderly who tend to refrain from going out are less likely to walk, and there are concerns about the adverse effects on their legs and lower back. Studies have shown that prolonged self-restraint increases the risk of eventually requiring nursing care or becoming bedridden. In addition, the period of rehabilitation itself was difficult. As the coronavirus calms down, it is expected that the number of people who need walking rehabilitation will increase rapidly and that curara will be useful in more and more situations.
We hope that it will be featured so that information on curara can be delivered to as many people as possible who need it.

2. Improved robot setting structure and belt
・By adding a memory display to the slide mechanism that adjusts the position of each motor, position adjustment becomes easier and proper mounting can be done without hesitation.
