To be able to move with the exoskeleton, our pilots Thomas Krieg and Rolf Schoch need two crutches. They can not only keep their balance with them but also control various functions of the exoskeleton. To enable the pilots to easily overcome the course at the CYBATHLON 2020, our B.Sc. student Christian Strässle developed special crutches in his semester project. These crutches are easily adjustable in height by the pilots and can therefore always be adapted to the corresponding obstacle. Especially for the obstacles ‘Sitting & Standing’ and ‘Sloping Ramp’ the new crutches offer our pilots significant advantages.
