The development and maintenance of standards for exoskeletons and exosuits. The Committee will encourage research in this field and sponsor symposia, workshops, and publications to facilitate the development of such standards. The work of this Committee will be coordinated with other ASTM technical committees and organizations having mutual or related interests.
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.
