LEG / Leg Prosthesis Race



About the Team

The CIERVO team comprises 25 interdisciplinary members, including electrical, biomedical, and mechanical engineers, all from Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. Their focus is on designing low-cost assistive technology that is both affordable and functional for those who rely on public healthcare systems. The project aims to implement automatic control to assist and regulate prosthetic movements, providing a more comfortable and adaptable experience for users.

By participating in CYBATHLON 2024, CIERVO seeks to demonstrate that technological innovation can be affordable and accessible. The goal is to change how public healthcare systems offer solutions to people with disabilities, proving that quality, functionality, and reduced costs can be combined to benefit a broader population. This approach is not only about design but also a commitment to improving the everyday lives of people with disabilities.
