A novel lower-extremity robotic exercise system with weight bearing and locomotion abilities has been developed for the severely disabled. The purpose of this study was to investigate the needs of users and clinical experts when using this robotic exercise system. The system consists of an exoskeleton, weight-bearing system, interface, and system platform. The results of this research are based on the opinions of focus groups and clinical experts who were interviewed after applying the robotic system. Comfort, safety, and natural appearance while wearing the system were considered. User feedback, received from the initial design and development of our system, has contributed to the implementation of our rehabilitation robot.
