MYLEG will be tested at CYBATHLON 2020 Global Edition
CYBATHLON 2020 – POWERED LEG PROSTHESIS RACE. The Swiss team NeuroLegs from the ETH Zurich aims to restore superficial sensory feedback for the missing leg through wearable sensors in the shoes. It is a non-invasive and non-permanent technical approach that does not depend on a specific prosthesis and can therefore be applied to any commercially available solution. Their idea is that the lack of sensory feedback is one of the main factors of prosthesis abandonment and rejection. They believe that by providing sensory feedback mobility confidence and the embodiment of the prosthesis can be increased, in particular for above-knee amputees such as their pilot Stefan Poth. Giacomo Valle is the team manager.
