About Us - Moving People and Technology
CYBATHLON provides a platform that challenges teams globally to develop assistive technologies suitable for everyday use, with and for people with disabilities. We promote design as a force to change – good and user-centred design is inclusive. We foster dialogue for greater inclusion that can break down barriers and make the difference between enabling and denying.
Initiated as a non-profit project of ETH Zurich, CYBATHLON is a platform for competitions and events that throw a spotlight on innovators of assistive technologies, partners and agencies that provide opportunities to place these new technologies in the hands of the people who need and use them.More About Us
