HSR Enhanced is the official Cybathlon team of the HSR Hochschule für Technik Rapperswil.
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]

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.
