The Championship for Robot-Assisted Parathletes
Hallenstadion Zurich, 8 October 2016
The Cybathlon is a championship with disabled racing pilots using advanced and novel assistive robotic technologies. The competitions will include the most modern powered knee prostheses, wearable hand prostheses, powered exoskeletons, powered wheelchairs, electrically stimulated muscles and novel brain-computer interfaces. Robotic and bionic devices can 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, who is driving the device, and one for the provider of the device. The event will be organized on behalf of the Swiss National Competence Center of Research in Robotics (NCCR Robotics).
