An international competition

Organised by the ETHZ, Cybathlon is an international competition in Zurich that aims to promote recent developments in robotics. Participants with physical disabilities overcome the obstacles of everyday life by using state-of-the-art technical support systems: motorized arm prosthesis, electronic simulation, motorized wheelchairs, brain-computer interfaces, motorized exoskeletons. At the 1st edition in 2016, the TWIICE team took 4th place in the exoskeleton race in only two months of training.

TWIICE: winner of the Cybathlon Experience since 2017

Since 2017, TWIICE has been participating in the Cybathlon Experience, a new format for interaction with the public. Together, athlete Silke Pan and his team have won the competition three times in a row. They are already training for the next Cybathlon which will take place in November 2020.

“The competition motivates us to give our best. By striving for excellence, we optimize the development of TWIICE towards autonomy and mobility”.
