This chapter outlines important factors for the design process of wearable robots. First, the challenges are discussed and possible user groups are detailed and categories of devices given. Then, major differences of classical design methods from the field of robotics are illustrated. This is due to linking between the machine and the user and challenges of user intention detection. Finally, some design approaches, guidelines and best practices for the development of wearable devices are discussed.
