BME Students Headed to Global Cybathlon

August 1, 2019

Team Out of the Gait

Inspired by the mission of the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill and NC State University to unite engineering and medicine to improve lives, ten students and two pilots (persons with disabilities) are embarking on a journey of learning, compassion, science and action in the 2020 CYBATHLON.

 

The 2020 CYBATHLON is an international obstacle course race that brings people with disabilities and technology innovators together to drive the development of the newest assistance systems. Six separate courses will challenge the students to devise a prosthetic that will enable the pilot to successfully complete the course within the designated time limit. The Team Out of the Gait is the first university-based team from the United States to register for the 2020 CYBATHLON.

 

Team Members:

  • Sam Fox, junior in BIomedical Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics.

  • Rhys Gretsch, junior in Computer Engineering with a concentration in Computer Architecture and Systems.

  • Jordan Harm, sophomore in Biomedical and Health Sciences Engineering minoring in Business Administration and Biotechnology.

  • Samantha Holmes, sophomore in Materials Science and Engineering with a concentration in BIomaterials and minors in Biology and Philosophy.

  • Emily Keller, sophomore in Biomedical and Health Sciences Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics.

  • Alexander Kyu, sophomore in Biomedical and Health Sciences Engineering with a concentration in Biosignals and Imaging and Medical Microdevices and a minor in Computer Programming.

  • Anthony Kyu, sophomore in Biomedical and Health Sciences Engineering with a concentration in Medical Microdevices and Rehabilitation Engineering.

  • Ramsey Othman, sophomore in Biomedical and Health Sciences Engineering with a concentration in Rehabilitation Engineering and Medical Microdevices and a minor in Computer Programming.

  • Sam Sites, sophomore in Biomedical Engineering.

  • Jake Skigen, junior in Biomedical Engineering with a concentration in Biomechanics.
