Advanced Lower-Extremity EXoskeleton
ALEX brings together a team of University of Melbourne graduate research students and pilots with limited mobility to form the first Australian-based team to compete in the Powered Exoskeleton Race in CYBATHLON 2020. We are developing exoskeleton technology which is made possible through the collaboration and support of Fourier Intelligence Co., Ltd. and the Robotics Laboratory within the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Melbourne. Our vision is to push the boundaries of this technology, in the hope of making devices like this one more accessible to the wider community in the future.
CYBATHLON 2020: Global Edition
The CYBATHLON 2020: Global Edition is a unique international championship for people living with disabilities that promotes and drives development of assistive technologies.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CYBATHLON 2020 can no longer be held in its original format in September. The exciting news is that CYBATHLON 2020 is still taking place - in a new global format, scheduled for autumn 2020!
Unfortunately, due to time pressure and the lack of access to our training facility as a result of the pandemic restrictions, ALEX will no longer be participating in the Powered Exoskeleton Race this year.
