    About the CYBATHLON

    Logo ETH Cybathlon Participant white

    The CYBATHLON is a championship for pilots with disabilities who are using advanced assistive devices including robotic technologies. It took place for the first time on 8 October 2016. The competitions are comprised of different disciplines that will test the ability of pilots to navigate a series of everyday tasks while using a powered knee prosthesis, wearable arm prosthesis, powered exoskeleton, powered wheelchair, electrically stimulated muscles and novel brain-computer interfaces. The assistive devices will include commercially available products provided by companies, but also prototypes developed by research labs. There will be two medals for each competition, one for the pilot and one for the technology provider [Source: www.cybathlon.ethz.ch].
