What are you most looking forward to about the Cybathlon and what do you hope to get out of the experience?
My expectations are to have a fun and interesting time, to meet new people make some connections.
Because I already took part in a research project with an EEG in 2012, I am very excited to find out what this project will offer. At the time, it was about the potential of implanted electrodes. My motivation for this project stems from my openness towards and interest in new experiences. The Cybathlon is an amazing opportunity to present the technical state of the art and I hope that it reaches a lot of people and enables more discourse on the topic. Not least because I hope that research around paraplegia and neural diseases will also profit from it.
What were your thoughts on the rehearsal event in July 2015?
The rehearsal was very exciting and interesting. To be able to see the venue, the complex technical set up, the various disciplines and various teams first hand only served to increase my excitement exponetially. The atmosphere in October next year, with spectators, teams and competition is sure to be great. My team and I are eagerly anticipating Cybathlon in October 2016.
