The $4 million Mobility Unlimited Challenge supports radical improvements in the mobility and independence of people with lower-limb paralysis through smarter assistive technology.

We're looking for innovative teams from around the world to build the next generation of mobility devices for people with lower-limb paralysis.

Launched in November 2017, the challenge is on to find innovators who have an idea or device that could change the lives of people with lower-limb paralysis.


Want to get involved? Check out 4 ways you can below:
