This certification represents an appraisal by the Japan Quality Assurance Organization (JQA) of the safety of Panasonic's Resyone service robot, in accordance with the ISO13482 global safety standard for personal robotic device (lifestyle support robot) safety. JQA President Osamu Morimoto presented the company with its certification at an event held to present the results of a project to commercialize lifestyle support robots organized by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).

Resyone is a robotic device built on an entirely new concept which fuses an electric care bed with an electric reclining wheelchair. Part of the electric care bed detaches off to serve as the electric reclining wheelchair, thus allowing the user to easily transfer from bed to wheelchair without placing burden on the care giver. With Resyone, only one care giver is require to support safe and simple transfer between bed and wheelchair, thus lightening the load for care givers and making it easier for care receivers to get out of bed whenever they desire.

The "ISO 13482 Robots and robotic devices -- Safety requirements for personal care robot" which Panasonic has obtained was launched by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) on February 1, 2014. It is the only global standard that concerns the safety of personal robotic devices (lifestyle support robots). Of the three categories of product covered by this standard -- physical assistant robots, mobile servant robots, and person carrier robots -- Resyone was assessed according to the criteria for mobile servant robots, and was the first product in the world to clear the necessary safety criteria for mechanism and operability in this category.

Having received this certification, based on the latest global standard by an independent certification institution, everything is now ready for users to adopt Resyone with safety and security. The related departments at Panasonic will now work closely together to accelerate the development of this business.
