At the RehaCare 2017
HSR Enhanced and its partner K/F Fashion were present with a booth at the RehaCare 2017. K/F Fashion displayed their latest product, a stylish jeans for quadriplegic. The trouser waistband is shorter in the front than in the back which makes it easier for the support person to transfer the patient. The jeans is closed by a velcro and a key ring. Therefore, it is possible for quadriplegics to open the jeans by themselves. HSR Enhanced presented their wheelchair and explained to the visitors how it was possible to win the Cybathlon 2016 within 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!
Interview on the local radio
ILT Professor Christian Bermes was invited to give an interview on the local radio Zuerisee about his Cybathlon team HSR ENHANCED. He spoke about the participation in the Cybathlon Experience, the role of the pilot Florian Hauser and the preparations for Cybathlon 2020.
