The Control Committees of the Swiss Parliament visited the SMS Lab
On September 8, thirty-one members of the Swiss National Council and the Council of States visited the ETH and took a guided tour through our lab. With the projects “Somnomat” and “lower limb exoskeletons” and our work on muscle fatigue we could give insights into current research activities.
Visit from Walt Disney
Jon Snoddy and Moritz Bächer from Disney Research Zurich, visited the SMS Lab at Balgrist Campus.
The very first Cybathlon in the world took place today. The event was completely sold out: some 4,600 visitors packed into the SWISS Arena Kloten to support the 66 teams from various countries. The pilots pitted their skills in six disciplines and demonstrated most impressively how novel technologies can assist people with disabilities in their daily life.
