Almost everything is ready for its market debut. We’re talking about the assistance robot that Samsung introduced three years ago, a kind of exoskeleton designed to assist people with functional diversity in their mobility.
Initially presented as GEMS Hip (Gait Enhancing and Motivating System), the Koreans have now trademarked it as Bot Fit, which is how they will launch it to the market. And they will do it soon, at the beginning of 2024 at CES in Las Vegas, according to the specialized Korean media Financial News.
After three years of development and obtaining medical certifications, the Bot Fit is ready to make its mark in the 2024 tech scene.
It is, as mentioned, a robot in the form of an exoskeleton designed to assist people with reduced mobility in walking. To achieve this, the Bot Fit has two modes: the Aqua mode and the Booster mode.
The Booster mode is intended for individuals who have suffered a back injury or have a more severe ailment, allowing them to walk with assistance. On the other hand, the Aqua mode will simulate the sensation of walking “on water,” which can be useful for aiding in recovery and physical therapy treatments.
One of the most interesting aspects of this wearable, apart from the product itself, is its integration into the Samsung ecosystem, as it seems that it will be compatible with the company’s phones, watches, and headphones.
This will allow users to track mobility progress, exercise, or enjoy music and podcasts without the need to have their Galaxy phone nearby.
Samsung Electronics CEO, Lee Jae-yong, has set his sights on artificial intelligence as a growth engine for the company, and without a doubt, this Bot Fit will benefit from the virtues of AI. It’s undoubtedly another example of how technology can be used to serve people, which is the best way to use technology.
