The De Luca Foundation is pleased to announce Dr. Charalambos Charalambous (University of Nicosia Medical School, Cyprus), Dr. Francois Hug (University of Nantes, France), and Dr. Ganesh Bapat (Birla Institute of Technology and Science Pilani, India) as the final recipients of Mobile EMG equipment, as part of our 2020 Mobile Equipment Donation Initiative.
Dr. Charalambous will be receiving a 2-Sensor Trigno Avanti Mobile System, for coherence assessments of lower extremity muscles during gait in stroke patients.
Dr. Hug will be receiving a 2-Sensor Trigno Avanti Mobile System, for introducing electromyography to students as part of a massive open online course (MOOC) on human movement, attended by thousands of students per session.
Dr. Bapat will be receiving a 2-Sensor Trigno Avanti Mobile System, for assessing the efficacy of a self-developed neck exoskeleton, as well as for use in Intro to Biomechanics courses for students.

The De Luca Foundation was proud to supply researchers and professionals across the world with 12 Mobile EMG packages throughout the tumultuous year of 2020. While the campaign originally began with the intention of helping individuals develop their area of expertise with unique tools, the campaign took on new meaning as a professional lifeline as facilities were affected by the COVID pandemic. We are honored and humbled to do our part in helping the Biomechanics community during these challenging times.
