EXOSKELET TO MAKE PARAPLEGICS WALK AGAIN

The Symbitron + Exoskeleton Race Team wants to win the Cybathlon 2020 in Zurich. This competition is organised for Exoskeleton teams all around the world. The pilots of the teams have a complete spinal cord lesion and can't walk without an Exoskeleton. They will compete against each other by performing different exercises wearing the Exoskeleton. These exercises include walking up a stair, walking on uneven terrain and standing up from a couch. These things are common for most people, but for someone with a spinal cord lesion impossible. The Exoskeleton allows people with paraplegics to move again and learn how to walk again. Slowly they will get used to the feeling and get more mobile and faster with the Exoskeleton. The goal of the Cybathlon 2020 is to promote the research for Exoskeletons world wide and get people more aware of the consequences of spinal cord injury.   

Learn more about the pilot Niek de Jonge and help him to support the Exoskeletons!
