CYBATHLON 2024 is almost at hand and the whole attention will be on our main players – the teams and their pilots. Here, we highlight several of our teams and their pilots today since they will be showcasing cutting-edge assistive technologies.
The CYBATHLON Challenges offer development teams the opportunity to involve people with disabilities in their development process from the very beginning and to test their assistance systems in a competitive situation.
The new Races and Rules for the CYBATHLON period up until 2024 will be published in early April. Why does CYBATHLON organise a competition for people with disabilities and how will this competition be further developed in line with the changing needs of people with disabilities? CYBATHLON Head of Competition Lukas Jäger has answers.
CYBATHLON launches a new event format and carries out the first edition of the new CYBATHLON Challenges in May 2022 in four disciplines. The new format allows development teams to test their devices at an early stage and foster collaboration with pilots from the very beginning.
Do you research and develop assistive technology such as exoskeletons, intelligent white canes for the blind or powered wheelchairs? Or do you wear a prosthesis yourself? Do you want to contribute to the inclusion of people with disabilities and work towards a world without barriers? Then become part of CYBATHLON now!
ETH Zurich’s unique non-profit project continues! From 25 to 27 October 2024, the third edition of the CYBATHLON will take place in a global format. The organisers are adding two more disciplines to the original six: a race using smart visual assistive technologies and a race using assistive robots. As a platform, CYBATHLON challenges teams from around the world to develop everyday assistive technologies for, and in collaboration with, people with disabilities.
Today was the last day of the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition. In total, 51 teams from 20 countries competed against each other, completing everyday tasks with the help of state-of-the-art assistance systems. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the teams competed for the first time in different time zones and locations. Apart from the winning teams, the technological advances attracted the most attention, as they also promote social inclusion.
On 13 and 14 November, the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition will be broadcast on the new CYBATHLON website. In this one-of-a-kind championship initiated by ETH, individuals with disabilities compete using the latest assistance technologies. Over 50 teams from around the world will be taking part in the qualifying rounds.
On 13 and 14 November, teams from all over the world will be brought together on a unique platform as they compete against each other from locations around the globe. So how much do you know about the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition?
As part of its comprehensive commitment, Schulthess Klinik is making its services available to CYBATHLON 2020, particularly as a medical partner. The medical partnership comprises medical checks for pilots to ensure safety and fair starting conditions.
On 13 and 14 November 2020, some 60 teams from all over the world will compete at CYBATHLON 2020. It’s the high point that pilot Stefan Poth has been waiting for – postponed by months due to the pandemic. At last, he can show what he can achieve when wearing a leg prosthesis.
More than 60 teams from all over the world will compete in this year's CYBATHLON. A unique new platform will bring together highly motivated pilots participating in the established disciplines from around the globe. Here is what you can expect from the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition.
