We are happy to welcome five Bachelor students to Cybathlon Team HSR Enhanced! They will initiate the participation of HSR Enhanced in the exoskeleton discipline by performing basic exoskeleton research in their thesis work. Matthias will work on mechanisms for fast adaption of exoskeletons to a pilot’s body dimensions, Ivo and Marcel will assess the potential of a soft robotics exosuit, Sebastian's task is the development of an exoskeleton cockpit complete with input and output instruments and Aleksandar will develop an exoskeleton test-bench for safe and efficient experiments. We are happy to have you with us!
After only 10 months of technical development and training, HSR ENHANCED has reached the first place in the Powered Wheelchair Race of the Cybathlon 2016. Our pilot Florian delivered an outstanding performance both in the qualification heat and in the final: Although he was not leading on the first obstacles, he managed to overtake all his competitors! We are incredibly proud of you, Florian, and on the whole HSR ENHANCED team! Watch the video highlights on the SRF page!
The economic magazine of Eastern Switzerland, LEADER, has published an online article on HSR ENHANCED. They also presented us in their digital newsletter. We are very proud to be featured in such a recognized paper. You may find the online article here.

On Tuesday September 20th, the HSR ENHANCED team had the chance to receive the team SCEWO from ETH Zurich in Rapperswil. In the last weeks before the Cybathlon, SCEWO will train several times on the HSR training course. HSR ENHANCED is happy to share both the training and competition experience with SCEWO. Welcome to Rapperswil, SCEWO!
The local newspaper Zürichsee-Zeitung has attended one of our training sessions. The result is both a great article on HSR ENHANCED and a video where you can watch Florian practise . Statements by our project responsible Christian Bermes and by our pilot Florian complement the article.
