The CYBATHLON is a unique opportunity to further improve and test the research done at the VUB to create the next generation of robot-assisted prostheses. We hope that these will one day improve the lives of thousands of people. However, to make this dream come true we are still looking for:

  • Researchers that are interested in contributing and learning.
  • Parathletes with a transfemoral amputation that are willing to collaborate with us in the coming months to test our knee prosthesis. Your participation will help enhance our research, and you will represent us in Kloten, Switzerland in October 2024.

Join Our Team for the CYBATHLON!

We are looking for people with a transfemoral amputation willing to join our team and compete in the Cybathlon on October 25-27 in Zurich. If you are interested, feel free to join our information session. Register your attendance by filling in this form
