Powered Leg Prosthesis Race

LEG

About the Discipline

Passive prostheses are primarily for cosmetic purposes and have few functional characteristics. So-​called active leg prostheses can be controlled accurately thanks to innovative technologies. After a leg amputation, motorised prostheses allow users to do things like climb stairs more easily and walk up and down sloped surfaces successfully. In this race, pilots using a leg prosthesis on one or both sides, including a knee joint, have to perform various movements. They can use any kind of active or passive prosthetic device.

About the Competition

The CYBATHLON wants to encourage teams to develop innovative solutions to cope with everyday challenges for leg prosthe​sis users. The race tasks demand abilities like getting up from a sofa or overcoming obstacles such as stairs or slopes. Precise steps and balance are needed when navigating over rough terrain. At the CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition pilots have to solve six different tasks. The pilot that solves the most tasks in the least amount of time correctly wins the race. The pilot may skip certain tasks but cannot return to them later. 

Inclusion criteria for pilots 

Pilots with above-​knee amputations (including through-​knee amputations) can participate in the race using any kind of passive or active prosthetic device.

New challenges for 2020 

The competition disciplines have been further developed since 2016 with the goal of letting the tasks reflect reality even better. As a conclusion, the pilots in the Powered Leg Prosthesis Race have to concentrate on secondary activities such as the balancing or carrying of objects such as buckets or boxes. Among other things, this demonstrates that the leg prosthesis allows pilots to walk as naturally and symmetrically as possible.
