ETH Zurich will host the next CYBATHLON

Continuation planned in May 2020 in Zurich, Switzerland

The unique chamionship 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.

I support the Cybathlon because it’s important to continue to improve technology for people with disabilities and to reduce the well known fear of contact with it. Swiss Athlete

I wear two artificial legs because of an accident and I know about the enormous gain in freedom and quality of life that a modern prosthesis delivers. It’s extremely important to support this development process and to make it known publicly. Motivation & Coaching
