cybathlonOn Saturday, 8 October 2016 ETH Zurich is organising the very first Cybathlon at the SWISS Arena in Kloten, Switzerland.  Individuals with physical disabilities will compete side by side in six demanding disciplines, using the latest assistive technologies, and now tickets are available to buy.

Cybathlon provides a platform for the development of novel assistive technologies that are useful for daily life. There are races for athletes with powered arm and leg prostheses, for those wearing a robotic exoskeleton, and for powered wheelchairs. There’s also a race for cyclists using electrical muscle stimulation and a brain-computer interface race.

On the day, there will be experts and moderators to present the events along with hands-on-demos so that visitors can try out some of the technologies on show at Cybathlon.

Through the organisation of the Cybathlon, we want to remove barriers between people with disabilities, the public and technology developers.
