Abstract

Gathering end users requirements at the development phase of innovative systems is a critical but often over looked feature of design. This paper presents the outcome of five focus groups undertaken to determine the key user needs for a novel state of the art modular multimodal system that can be customized and adapted to the needs of people with complex disabilities. Users discussed their desires for the system, their preferences for control, the use of a wearable upper limb exoskeleton, and finally usability factors were outlined. Future research will focus on target end users validating the iterative prototypes that emerge from this user centered design approach.
