TÜV SÜD has issued the first certification mark for an electric exoskeleton. After undergoing testing based on the ISO 13482 standard, the Cray X power suit, produced by Augsburg-based robotics manufacturer German Bionic, was awarded “TÜV SÜD Safety Tested” certification. This certificate provides confirmation that the AI-based active exoskeleton complies with the fundamental technical safety requirements set out in the standard. By doing so, it thus enhances the product’s market acceptance.
Exoskeleton suits are devices composed of mechanical and electronic components, designed to support the human locomotor system by improving its performance and robustness. These products are enormously significant for the health of their users, and are required to comply with accordingly high standards of quality and stability. TÜV SÜD issued its first certificate for an electric exoskeleton in July 2022, when the Cray X power suit from Augsburg-based manufacturer German Bionic was awarded the “TÜV SÜD Safety Tested” certification mark. The voluntary certification documents that TÜV SÜD has conducted independent third-party testing of the AI-based active exoskeleton and confirms the device’s conformity with fundamental technical safety requirements. It serves as an additional quality feature and enhances the product’s market appeal.
“As the testing procedures we performed on the exoskeleton showed, our in-depth knowledge of applicable standards and our expert eye for flawless execution enable us to deliver rapid and reliable testing even of highly innovative products and market newcomers. The customer confidence generated by this process is particularly vital in the case of new products that are still seeking to enter the market”, explains Benedikt Pulver, Team Leader Smart Automation at TÜV SÜD.
