Wibotics Unveils WIM, a Revolutionary Wearable Mobility Device for Walking Exercise

WIRobotics, the pioneering wearable robot development startup, stole the spotlight at the CES Unveiled event with the introduction of 'WIM,' a groundbreaking wearable mobility device designed to enhance walking exercises. Co-CEOs Yeonbaek Lee and Yongjae Kim proudly presented their creation, which not only garnered attention but also clinched two prestigious CES Innovation Awards.

WIM, weighing in at an astonishingly light 1.4kg, has redefined the landscape of wearable robots. This innovative device can be seamlessly attached and detached in just 30 seconds, setting new standards for both weight and usability in the wearable robotics industry.

Wibotics emphasized that WIM stands apart from its predecessors, as it was specifically engineered for walking exercises accessible to the general public, diverging from the traditional use of wearable robots in specialized environments like industry or medical settings.

Explaining the unique features of WIM, Wibotics stated, "By leveraging the wearer's posture information and gait data, the device analyzes musculoskeletal information to selectively enhance gait posture, efficiency, muscle strength, and more."

The applications of WIM are diverse, serving as a personal mobility aid for seniors with diminished muscle strength, post-illness patients requiring continuous walking exercise, and even supporting healthy individuals in activities like hiking, trekking, and light jogging.

The CES Innovation Awards, bestowed upon WIM in two categories, underscore the device's groundbreaking nature and its potential to revolutionize the way people approach walking exercises and mobility assistance.
