We need your support! Donate to the unique competition to advance research and development of user-centric assistive technologies and foster inclusion for people with disabilities.
Two engineering students at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly)S embarked on an incredible journey to make a difference in the lives of others, and their dream is becoming a reality. “@CYBATHLON opened our eyes to a new community and a cool place to learn about up-and-coming tech,” Janis Iourovitski explains. Janis Iourovitski and Michael Gallagher, the visionaries behind the Lower-Limb Exoskeleton Assist Project (LLEAP), started with a simple idea to design ankle braces. Now, ...
Get ready for a journey of innovation as the North-West University (NWU) engineering team, led by Prof André Grobler and Ian Thomson, gears up to showcase cutting-edge prosthetic leg and wheelchair designs at the CYBATHLON 2024 competition in Zürich, Switzerland! The team is developing a state-of-the-art prosthetic leg using 3D printing for efficiency. Ian describes the knee as the "brain" of the prosthesis, crucial for overcoming obstacles in the race. The ankle simulates natural movement, an ...

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
