Stroke has become a leading cause of death and paralysis in some countries such as Indonesia. Based on the Basic Health Research (Riskesdas) during 2007-2013, the prevalence rate of stroke has gradually increased from 8.3 became 12.1. Ischemic stroke takes a part of the 85% of it and contributes a high number of the paralysis as the result of the stroke attack. According to Riskesdas, the post stroke patients also came from low-economical background, so it might be difficult for the patients to afford post treatments to cure the effects such as the therapy and several equipment. Exoskeleton as one of the supporting tools which is used after the stroke attack playing an important role to help the post stroke patient in the daily life. Almost of this product were imported from the other countries, so the price is higher enough for consumers with low economical background. In this condition, a lower cost exoskeleton product is a major demand for post stroke patients. Some methods were used in designing the exoskeleton as supporting tools for post stroke patients. A deep interview was done to get the problems and need of the user. In addition, the user�s activities well identify by having a shadowing. On the other hand, the design of the product tremendously developed by a brainstorming process. Usability testing of the model is completed to confirm the compatibility of the product for the user. As the result of the implemented methods, the needs and opportunity of the design will be identified by the design concept including the adjustable system, replicable outer and local fabrication. The low cost product accommodates the needs of post stroke to have an assisting tools with lower cost than the current product. Furthermore, the lightweight design executes to accomplish the excessive appearance of the exoskeleton.
