Gogoa Joins ASTM Committee F48 to Define Exoskeleton Standards

At Gogoa Mobility Robots, we are thrilled to announce our renewed membership in the ASTM Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits (ASTM Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits). This is news that fills us with pride, as it allows us to actively participate in the development of standards for an innovative technology that promises to revolutionize various industries.

Our commitment to this committee is a reflection of our strong dedication to contributing to the definition of standards in the exciting field of exoskeletons. As the first European company to obtain the coveted CE certification for an ambulatory lower limb rehabilitation exoskeleton, our beloved HANK, we believe that our experience and knowledge will be a valuable contribution to the committee.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Nora Nimmerichter and William Billotte, PhD, for their unwavering support and for extending the invitation to be part of this passionate community dedicated to exoskeletons. Additionally, we wish to highlight the crucial role of Rita Vazquez in facilitating this valuable connection.

If you would like to learn more about the ASTM Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits, here are some interesting details:

This committee was established in September with the purpose of developing voluntary consensus standards for exoskeletons and exosuits. In their work, they address crucial aspects such as safety, quality, performance, ergonomics, and terminology related to systems and components throughout the product's entire lifecycle. This includes significant considerations regarding safety and information technology. The committee's activities encompass a wide variety of applications, from industry to emergency response, healthcare, the military, and consumer use, covering various exoskeleton systems.

The committee meets twice a year to discuss standards that will be published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 15.13. F48 comprises six technical subcommittees responsible for developing and maintaining these standards. If you would like more details about the committee's structure and their portfolio of approved standards and ongoing work, we invite you to visit their website.
