Sweden wins medal in the Cybathlon competition, “cyborg Olympics”, at the Swiss Arena in Zürich
The first recipient of our osseointegration and neural control technology competed on 8 October in the Cybathlon, an event aimed at pushing the technological boundaries to reduce disability. More than 8,000 spectators and 700 journalists covered this initial event.
Despite being the only participant with an above-elbow amputation, a disadvantage when competing against below-elbow-amputees, the strong, stable attachment provided by the OPRA Implant System and our reliable control technology (OHMG) helped Magnus N. to win the bronze medal! We are all very proud of him and our team (Integrum, Chalmers University of Technology and Sahlgrenska University Hospital).
