Abstract

The need for Assistive Technologies in Europe is leading to the development of projects which aim is to research and develop technical solutions for people with long term motor disabilities. The Assistive Technology Rapid Integration & Construction Set (AsTeRICS) project funded by the 7th Framework Programme of the EU (Grant Agreement 247730) aims to develop a supporting multiple device integrated system to help people with upper limbs impairment. To this end, AsTeRICS is following the User Centred Design methods to gather the user requirements and develop solutions in an iterative way. This paper reports requirements prioritization procedures. These procedures are described in order to illustrate the user requirements transformation into technical requirements for the system development.
