The third CYBATHLON edition will be held from October 25 to 27, 2024, at Arena Schluefweg in Kloten near Zurich. The CYBATHLON is a championship for robot-assisted parathletes. The idea is simple: parathletes will race against each other over an obstacle course. In order to do so, the athletes will be assisted by prototypes of prostheses, wearable exoskeletons, powered wheelchairs, etc., that use new robotic technologies.

CYBATHLON will feature state of the art technology from research groups and companies from all over the world. It brings together different people from the industry and allows them to learn from each other.

If all this doesn’t get you excited yet, check out their website  and the promotional video of the CYBATHLON below.

We want to contribute to a world without barriers.
