Focus Project VariLeg enhanced
The Focus Project is a project work stretched over two semesters in which students in the last year of their Bachelor's degree get to apply their knowledge and develop new products. At the end of the project, the final product will be presented to the public at the Roll-Out presentation in 2019.
It's our vision to build a race exoskeleton to participate in CYBATHLON 2020. Our exoskeleton will be surpassing the preceding model in dynamics, weight and performance.
Our goal is to successfully develop a working prototype to participate in the CYBATHLON 2020. The CYBATHLON is a unique championship in which people with physical disabilities compete against each other to complete everyday tasks using state-of-the-art technical assistance systems.
We are a team of fifteen members from both HSR and ETH Zurich, with students in the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering as well as Health Sciences and Technology.

VariLeg 2 was developed and tested within Focus Project 2015/2016. Although we use VariLeg 2 as our knowledge base, we are not adopting entire parts of it.
VariLeg 1 has been the first exoskeleton that was designed and developed within a Focus Project. It was already able to walk and therefore was used as the first prototype and basis of VariLeg 2.
