The CYBATHLON Experience of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich will once again attract a great deal of attention this year.
Already in 2017, people with physical disabilities, supported by intelligent technical assistance systems, competed against each other in exciting show competitions. Two different obstacle courses had to be mastered – one with wheelchairs, the other with robotic exoskeletons.
This year the course will also be equipped for the use of arm and leg prostheses.
The CYBATHLON competition serves the research, development and implementation of modern assistance systems. It shows how well technology already supports people with disabilities today and what it should achieve in the future.
