ETH Zurich will host the next Cybathlon in May 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland!

The unique competition for people with disabilities will continue!

The six disciplines from 2016; Brain-Computer Interface Race, FES Bike Race, Powered Arm Prosthesis Race, Powered Leg Prosthesis Race, Powered Exoskeleton Race, Powered Wheelchair Race, will remain in the Cybathlon 2020 programme. The tasks will continue to be relevant to everyday life, but will reflect advances in research. The main goal of the Cybathlon 2020 is to push the development of assistive devices for people with disabilities.

Due to the very successful Cybathlon event in 2016 and the feedback received, the Organising Committee plans an even bigger event, breaking it up into two days. There will also be an attractive secondary programme, wherein the visitors can try out the disciplines for themselves (hands-on demos) and understand the issues surrounding disability in a practical way.

Upcoming Events:

MedTech Japan 2017, April 19-21, 2017, booth no. 907: Visit our Co-Directors, Dr. Roland Sigrist and Dario Wyss at the Swiss Medtech Pavilion (see website).

Rehab Karlsruhe 2017, May 11-13, 2017, booth no. G38 in hall 1: The Cybathlon will be presented together with our ETH Wheelchair Team Scewo (see website).
