TV4 interviews Magnus Niska, as he prepares to compete with his bionic arm in the Cybathlon 2020 Global Edition

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!
