Description

CYBATHLON – Moving People and Technology

The Cybathlon is a unique championship in which people with physical disabilities compete against each other to complete everyday tasks using state-​of-the-art technical assistance systems. Robert Riener, Professor of Sensory-​Motor Systems at ETH Zurich, initiated the Cybathlon in 2013 as a platform for the development of everyday assistive devices. The first competition, organised by ETH Zurich was successfully launched in 2016. In a sold-out stadium in Zurich more than 60 pilots (competitors) from 25 nations competed in six different disciplines.

CYBATHLON 2020 anticipates an even larger two-day competitive event with more teams putting advances in assistive technologies to the test.
