Event description

Description

Cybathlon - Moving people and technology

On Saturday, 8 October 2016, ETH Zurich will host the very first Cybathlon! Individuals with physical disabilities will compete side by side in six demanding disciplines, using the latest assistive technologies. There are races for athletes using powered arm and leg prostheses, robotic exoskeletons, and powered wheelchairs. There are also races for cyclists using electrical muscle stimulation and a brain-computer interface.

Cybathlon provides a platform for the development of novel assistive technologies that are useful for daily life. Through this competitive event, we hope to break-down the barriers between people with disabilities, the general public, and technology developers to advance assistive technologies.

Interested in joining us as a member of the media? Please click the "register" link above to request media accreditation.

Notes:

  • An additional Scientific Symposium will still be held on 6 October.  However, due to high demand, we no longer have any available places for members of the media. 
  • Due to the high demand and limited space in the arena, we can no longer provide media accreditation for documentary film crews covering the Cybathlon main event.
