Seoul, South Korea, September 22, 2020: Global technology leader, Samsung Electronics has announced on Monday that its assistive personal care robot GEMS (Gait Enhancing & Motivating System) Hip has been awarded an ISO 13482 certification for safety and product consistency.

According to the company, Samsung Electronics has become the first Korean organization to achieve an ISO 13482 international certification. It is a universally recognized standard developed in 2014 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Through this certification, ISO aims to ensure protection in the usage of mobile servant robots, human carrier robots, and physical assistant robots. The certification explicitly acknowledges the quality, safety, and product consistency of the Samsung GEMS Hip in compliance with the specifications of ISO 13482.

Additionally, the South Korean technology giant has also acquired an ISO 13849 certification for GEMS Hip, to ensure the safety of machinery and related parts of the control system. The certification enhances the GEMS Hip’s safety feature by restricting the maximum torque of the system motor.

As per the reports, GEMS Hips has the capacity to reduce 24% of the metabolic cost of walking by applying sufficient torque to both the hip joints in conjunction with the wearer’s motion, while accelerating the pace by 14%. This would eventually contribute to a more energy-efficient and stable gait pattern.

The Senior Vice-President and Head of Robot Center at Samsung Research, Sungchul Kang, is pleased to acquire the two international safety certifications from ISO. He stated that the certifications will expand the usage of service robots in the daily lives of the people, boost their usability and functionality, and further help to develop the field of personal care robotics.

According to the financial report, Samsung Electronics achieved a net profit of KRW 5.56 trillion during 2Q 2020 as compared to the previous year’s net profit which was KRW 5.18 trillion, a significant growth by 7.3% Y-O-Y. Moreover, Samsung is currently working towards 6G connectivity, hence the R&D expense also increased this year by 5.4% Y-O-Y to KRW 5.22 trillion as compared to the previous year which was KRW 4.95 trillion during 2Q 2019.
