    RehaCare 2017

    HSR Enhanced and its partner K/F Fashion were present at the RehaCare 2017. K/F Fashion displayed their latest product, a stylish jeans for quadriplegics. The trouser waistband is shorter in the front than in the back which makes it easier for the supporting person to transfer the patient. Furthermore, the jeans is closed by a velcro and a key ring. This makes it possible for the quadriplegic to open the jeans by themselves.

    HSR Enhanced presented their team and explained to the visitors how it was possible to win at Cybathlon 2016 after only 10 months of technical development and training.

    Successful Cybathlon EXPERIENCE!

    HSR Enhanced demonstrated their wheelchair in the Cybathlon Experience at the RehaCare fair 2017. As HSR Enhanced and its competitor Caterwil were on a very similar level, they delivered thrilling neck-to-neck races in every single run. We are happy that our runs were on a consistent high level during the whole event and we are very proud of our pilot Flo who delivered once again outstanding performances every day.

    We say thank you to the cheering audience, the media interest and especially the Cybathlon organizers for making this experience possible!

    Cybathlon, October 8th 2016:

    cybathlon logo

    The Cybathlon is a championship for pilots with disabilities who are using advanced assistive devices including robotic technologies. 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 knee prosthesis, wearable arm prosthesis, powered exoskeleton, powered wheelchair, electrically stimulated muscles and novel brain-computer interfaces. 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. [Source: www.cybathlon.ethz.ch]

    The project HSR Enhanced:

    cropped cybathlon Weehlchair ETH Kopie

    HSR Enhanced participates in the Powered Wheelchair race discipline. Within the next months, we are developing the electrically powered race chair for our pilot Florian Hauser. Performing with this device, Florian will overcome the six obstacles in the championship safely, accurately and within time limits. You find more information about the Powered Wheelchair Race here.

    The project is initiated by the Institute for Lab Automation and Mechatronics (ILT) of the Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil. It aims at providing maximal agility and fun to our pilot Florian at the day of the race by means of an enhanced race chair. The technical team consists of project engineers of the ILT, as well as several Bachelor’s and Master’s students of mechanical engineering.


    The HSR Enhanced team is formed by the ILT Institute for Lab Automation and Mechatronics.
