“The Harmony SHR exoskeleton is a highly unique robotic device that has been specifically designed for bilateral upper body rehabilitation purposes. The CUHK Medical Centre is proud to announce that it has recently acquired the first Harmony device in Hong Kong,” said Professor Herman Lau. “Patients who have been using the Harmony system have shown remarkable motivation and enthusiasm, which has resulted in some promising outcomes in a relatively short period of time.”
