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.
