China Focus: Science, technology boost accessibility for people with disabilities


Jia Hongguang, a Chinese gold medalist at the Tokyo Paralympics, firmly gripped the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games torch with a bionic hand and handed it to the next torchbearer to complete his leg of the torch relay at the Temple of Heaven in Beijing on March 2.


"It was amazing to have the hand. The scientific and technological innovation makes my life easier," he said.


Jia was not alone to have benefitted from the scientific achievements supported by technologies developed by director Ji Linhong and his team of intelligence and biomechanics laboratory at Tsinghua University in Beijing.


Ji and his team made tailored plans for each Chinese para-athlete and recorded their body movements in the training through a monitoring system.
