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. The competitions are comprised of different disciplines that will test the ability of pilots to navigate a series of everyday tasks while using a powered leg prosthesis, powered arm prosthesis, powered exoskeleton, powered wheelchair, electrically stimulated mucles, and novel brain-computer intefaces. The assistive devices will include commercially available products provided by companies, but also prototypes developed by research labs. There will be two medals for each competition: one for the pilot and one for the technology provider. More about the program here.
