We are a group of students dedicated to improve and develop the lifestyles of those that feel they do not have an advantage in life. We are mixed group of engineers and designers brought together by our love of innovation and invention. Throughout our Cybathlon journey, we will always consider the safety and ability of our pilot as we work together to improve the lives of those that have been unfortunate enough to be affected by a disability. Hopefully we can raise awareness to both our cause in particular and to the goals and cause of such an amazing competition aimed to educate people on the difficulties faced by nearly 15% of the global population and how we can actively do something about it.
We are a multidisciplinary team with the goal of expanding our expertise and we are always open to and willing to collaborate with other teams, be it student, charity or research and development who are willing to aid us in the competition. We would also be grateful if any companies would be willing to sponsor us on our journey so that we could achieve the best possible results and really make a difference to the world.
Thank you for being beside us on our adventure!
Our team is supported by: Queen Mary Westfield Fund, Robotics Group.

What is Cybathlon?
Cybathlon made an explosive start in 2016 gathering much media and student attention. It aims to both educate people and motivate students and companies to further improve assistive technology to meet the growing demand to close the gap between normal living abilities and the living quality of people affected by disabilities. It’s a competition consisting of 6 different races, one being the advanced wheelchair race which the QM Cybathlon team will be entering.
The competition takes place in Zurich every 4 years ….. So watch out for us in 2020!
