According to the South Korean media ETNews, Samsung is planning to mass-produce the wearable robot Bot Fit in mid-2024, with the initial production estimated to be less than 100,000 units.

In 2019, Samsung showcased and launched the assistive wearable robot GEMS Hip, an exoskeleton-type wearable device. Originally designed for medical purposes, the product later expanded to general fitness applications. By wearing this robotic device and moving around, it can simulate physical therapy rehabilitation training.

It is reported that Samsung Electronics is expected to release two versions of the GEMS Hip product, one for fitness and the other for medical purposes. Since the introduction of GEMS Hip, there has been little news about this exoskeleton-type wearable device for a long time.

ETNews reported that Samsung completed the commercial development of GEMS Hip in 2023 and rebranded it as Bot Fit. The South Korean media stated that Samsung began trial production of Bot Fit in the second to third quarter of 2023 and plans to announce or launch this assistive robot in the fourth quarter of 2024.

It is worth mentioning that Bot Fit may be Samsung’s first wearable robot product. According to South Korean reports, Bot Fit can be worn on the hip joint, providing more than 20% walking power to the wearer when walking and increasing walking speed by 10%.

Bot Fit’s safety has been ensured according to the international standard ISO 13482 certification.
