Delight of Locomotion for all

In nature, creatures have learn how to move their body to survive. Cheetah can run faster than other animals, bird flyies with two wings, and penguin swims though it is a kind of birds. Human being have ambulated on two legs for four million year ago, and established our own culture with science and technology in the process of evolution. Human being, without natural enemy has started to feel big fun by moving his body for recreation, sports and so forth. We feel great with sweat after exercise, happy to do sports with our friends, and feel relax by walking in nature. These are what we all should feel. We never believe this delightness is deprived by any reason such as lacking of talent, disabled, elderly etc.

Fastest athlete

In 2012, one disabled athlete with prostheses competed with intact athletes in London Olympic. This was the first time in the history. Recent innovation of athletics and technology of prosthesis will definitely push a level of Paralympic game up. And this year, at Rio, disabled long jumper may defeat intact athlete. What is happening in 2020 at Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics? We, Xiborg, are dreaming to see that Paralympic champion of sprinting will finish with faster time than Olympic champion in the same year. In order to make it happen, we are developing running-specific prostheses considering biomechanics of athletes, and coaching athletes running with our technology.

Cyborg Prosthesis

Recent innovation of robotics, technology of prosthesis has been dramatically advanced. Common prosthesis is currently composed of passive elements, but user would be able to move more naturally if active elements is implemented. We has been developing robotic prosthetic knee and ankle-foot joint in collaboration with Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc.

Cybathlon

Cybathlon is a competition of cyborg technology. There are six different disciplines (prosthetic hand, prosthetic leg, wheelchair, exoskeleton, etc. ). The first competition was in this October, 2016. We joined this competition and still working on commercializing this prototype.

    Jarryd Wallace
    A high school state champion in the 800- and 1,600-meters. During his junior year in 2010, he started feeling pain in his right shin that he ultimately learned was the effect of compartment syndrome. Complications in surgery caused him to make the decision to amputate his leg below-the-knee. Within 12 weeks of his amputation, he had his first running blade and just 15 months after his amputation, he won his first major international gold and set a world record at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. In 2013, won 200m at the IPC World Championship, and ran at the 2012 London and 2016 Rio Paralympic Games. Date of Birth
