The Technology Behind the Paralympics

There’s been some pretty awesome technology displayed at the Paralympics. I’ve already posted this amazing aqua-wheelchair that was on show there. I’ve also found a few more videos looking at the technology supporting Paralympic athletes. Below we see the Sheffield engineers who helped Team GB Paralympians, a piece on current prosthesis technology, repair technicians at the Paralympics, and some future tech imagined by Imperial College students.
