    New stairclimbing module

    Kevin B├╝rgi, student of Mechanical Engineering,has developed a new stairclimbing module for the race chair in his Bachelor Thesis. It enables our pilot to overcome stairs with more than three steps up and down. This has become necessary due to the new CYBATHLON race rules, which require the pilots to climb up and down stairs with six steps. Kevin decided not to improve the former module, but to develop a completely new one. He suggests a crawler system, which is more suitable for stairs with arbitrary number of steps, and it is more comfortable for the pilot. As soon as Kevin has received all the parts for his new module, he will finish the assembly and complete his thesis. The final implementation of the crawler system will follow in the next weeks and will see rigid testing and improvements by feedbacks from our pilot Florian Hauser.
