ASTM WK68719

    New Guide for System Usefulness and Usability

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F48.02 | Committee F48 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Identify and develop methods for assessing the usefulness and usability of exoskeleton/exosuit use.


    exo; human factors


    High perceived usefulness and usability is critical to user acceptance of exoskeletons. Understanding how a person interfaces and integrates, both physically and cognitively, with an exoskeleton or exosuit system has implications for performance, safety, and overall success. Creating a standards guide that provides usefulness and usability assessment tools (e.g., relevant attributes, questionnaires, and observation methods) will assist effective system development.

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
