Who we are
We are a student initiative at the Technical University of Munich working in the fields of neuroengineering and assistive robotics. Currently, we are working on two projects to participate in the 2020 CYBATHLON competition.
What is Cybathlon?
"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. " (CYBATHLON, ETH Zürich)
scientific progress in the field of assistive technologies
usefulness (in activities of daily living) for people with disabilities
developing and testing of new forms of human-centered engineering education
The CyberLimb team is currently developing a powered arm prosthesis that our pilot Simona will wear in the 2020 CYBATHLON ARM race.
How to join our team as a student
We are always looking for motivated students from all disciplines. While the project was kickstarted by students from the neuroengineering master program, it is now open to students from all disciplines at TUM such as electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science and science and technology studies. For each project, the best students will be invited to join the core teams which will be present at the challenge.
How to contribute as a sponsor
We look forward to an active exchange of ideas and are open to new cooperations. For general inquiries, please contact: email@example.com
We would like to thank the Elite Network of Bavaria, the Neuroengineering master program and the Munich School of Robotics and Machine Intelligence for their financial support.
We'd also like to say a big "Thank you!" to Florian Rattei, the program manager of the Neuroengineering master program at TUM, for his immense support.
We are furthermore very thankful to Prof. Dr. med. Rainer Hanns Hermann Burgkart for his great help with finding a pilot for the CyberLimb team.
