Samsung's GEMS Provides an Immersive Workout Experience

— January 8, 2020 — Lifestyle
Samsung’s GEMS (Gait Enhancing & Motivating System) technology not only has the potential to help improve people's mobility but also offer an immersive workout experience, as demonstrated at CES 2020. Introduced last year, GEMS was originally developed to help elderly people and those impacted by injuries to regain mobility by assisting the joints of the lower limbs and offering resistance. At the Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung paired these assistive exoskeletons with augmented reality glasses and a virtual personal trainer.

As GEMS is worn on the body, the system uses robotics to provide personalized recommendations and workout routines that get increasingly more difficult.

At CES, Samsung offered a look at GEMS and some other concepts for the Age of Experience.
