Every four years, athletes with disabilities from all over the world participate in Cybathlon, competing in one of several disciplines. This year, due to the global pandemic, athletes or so-called “pilots” gathered online at each team’s home base. Magnus is competing in the discipline “Powered-Arm Prosthesis Race” with Tonney Forsberg. They are guided by Team e-OPRA at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In the interview, Magnus Niska, the first person in the world to receive Integrum’s e-OPRA™ Implant System, describes how quickly his brain learned to communicate with his mind-controlled arm prosthesis, and his prospects for victory in the competition. Go Team e-OPRA!
