Successful kick-off at the CYBATHLON Experience

There are eight months left until CYBATHLON. CYBATHLON is a competition in which people with disabilities compete. In 2020 we will compete with Scewo Bro. On Tuesday we proved our skills by two demo races.

Countdown

In about half a year we will be on the starting line of the CYBATHLON; the competition where people with disabilities compete. Until then the host organizes several demo races. Also last Tuesday.

At the “CYBATHLON Experience”, which took place at Zurich Main Station, we competed in two demo races with Scewo Bro. The original course included obstacles such as “taking seat” at a table, driving over chunks of wood, climbing stairs and opening a door without physical help.

Basil, our pilot, mastered both races excellently. He confidently mastered obstacle after obstacle (and was so fast that he almost rammed the door 😆).

” I am very satisfied even though we finished second. Compared to our CYBATHLON wheelchair “Scewo” from 2016, we improved our performance and our ability a lot. Something you should keep in mind: Our wheelchair will soon be a marketable product. This means that we focus on the everyday life of our customers and not on the obstacles of CYBATHLON when developing our wheelchair. Now, the big challenge is to develop a robot arm by May 2020 that will open the door at the big race – and hopefully contribute to win the CYBATHLON 2020,” says our CEO Beni Winter.

What our pilot, Basil Dias, says about Scewo Bro

«It surprises me again and again what is possible nowadays. Scewo Bro is a great product that I really can recommend to others.»
