Marine Loyen - 12/09/2016

On 8 October, Jérôme Parent will be competing in an exceptional cycle race.

Paraplegic for the last 21 years, he is regaining the use of his legs thanks to electrostimulation.

A close-knit team of Inria robotics researchers - but also a doctor and a physiotherapist -  will be by his side.

He will take part in the Cybathlon in Zurich, a sporting competition between disabled sportsmen and women helped by new assistance technologies. 

One of the six disciplines is electrical stimulation pedalling.
