Cybathlon 2016 Powered Exoskeleton Finals
Cybathlon 2016 provides a platform for the development of novel assistive technologies that are useful for daily life. Through the organisation of the Cybathlon we want to remove barriers between people with disabilities, the public and technology developers.
Individuals with physical disabilities competed side by side in six demanding disciplines, using the latest assistive technologies.
Watch the athletes as they tackled flights of stairs in the new wheel chairs and proved their speed and skill using the most up-to-date modern prostheses. The various races tested how the competitors cope with specific challenges and activities from everyday life.
