2019 was yet another successful year for the De Luca Foundation, as we continued to diversify our means of support to the biomechanics community.
We established a new App Development Competition that provides cash and lab equipment for developing EMG-centric applications for mobile devices with real-world viability in the areas of rehabilitation, sport, ergonomics, education and basic research.
Additionally, we supported a number of community-oriented events, including the Bionic 5k which promotes active lifestyles for those with physical disabilities; and the Shriners Hospitals’ Walk for Love which raises funds for pediatric specialty care and research.
Our annual Delsys Prize received the most applications in the history of the competition (#182), and for the first time included the innovative NeuroMap System for motor unit studies in our prize package.
We are looking forward to continuing our successful initiatives in 2020, and we encourage you to inquire about potential support opportunities for the upcoming year.
