A hospital in Beijing has introduced a rehabilitation robot to help patients with lower limb dysfunction to better recover.

The Novo Skeleton Robot, developed by AVIC Chuangshi robot (Xi'an) Co, is an artificial intelligence rehabilitation robot with complete independent intellectual property rights.

"During rehabilitation treatment, the robot is able to imitate the physical gait of humans to establish a correct walking pattern," said Qiu Zhiyong, deputy director of the hospital's Rehabilitation Medicine Department.

The hospital introduced the robot in the beginning of 2021 and has used it in treatment for up to 12 types of diseases and conditions, such as cerebral palsy and stroke.

"It adopted a training mode that combined the initiative and passive exercises together," Qiu said. "When patients use their strength, they, as the power source themselves, can drive the pulley to rotate. Otherwise, the robot can mobilize patients to walk."

Doctors also can make personalized plans based on the needs of the patients," he added.
