Throwback 1: How everything began
Let’s use the next few weeks to have a look back to the beginnings of the focus project VariLeg enhanced. Everything began with the kick-off of the focus project VariLeg enhanced in late summer 2018. 15 students from ETH Zurich and HSR had the task to develop a new exoskeleton in order to compete with their pilots Thomas Krieg and Rolf Schoch at the CYBATHLON 2020. The first draft of the future exoskeleton was made from cardboard and served to check the dimensions directly on the pilot. Since this point, the exoskeleton was constantly evolved.
