Cybathlon 2016, to be held in Zurich on Oct. 8, 2016, will be the first international competition for robot-assisted parathletes. Competitors must have some part of their body moved by external power, such as a prosthesis or exoskeleton. Cybathlon will feature races in six categories, including brain-computer interface, leg prosthetics, arm prosthetics and powered exoskeleton. Device manufacturers, along with the athletes, will be recognized for their contributions.
