The Interactive Usability Toolbox
As of today, an inadequate usability is a key limitation to the technology acceptance of wearable robotic devices. Let us help you tackle this issue! This platform is designed to support the development and evaluation of wearable robotics by improving the usability evaluation practice. We can help you to find and select user research methods and provide you with the basic knowledge about usability. A structured, well-balanced, and fair usability evaluation is crucial for successful user-centered design and acceptance of robotic technology.
Help us defining usability for wearable robotics!
Participate in our 15-minute survey to find consensus on the definitions of usability attributes.
These are the basis to establish a benchmark for usability evaluation in the WR community.
Sharing knowledge from wearable robotics research
This website was developed by the Rehabilitation Engineering Laboratory (RELab) of ETH Zurich. The RELab is an interdisciplinary group with competences in mechanical and electrical engineering, movement science, psychology and neuroscience. This toolbox aims to share our knowledge and experience from over 10 years of involvement in wearable robotics development and research. On a daily basis, we apply user-centered design to make sure our technologies meet the target users needs.
