Neuromuscular Research is Trending in India

Seach results for “India” and “Neuromuscular” on PubMed indicate a massive growth in the popularity of this research in the last few years.

What Is the Integrative Motion Award?

The Integrative Motion Award is a standalone grant program, designed to support independent researchers in India who are interested in the interaction between the neuromuscular and cardiovascular systems of the human body. This year, the De Luca Foundation will select two winners in India who will conduct novel pilot research studies using the tools provided in the packages listed here.

Our Goal: To Promote the International Growth of Research in Integrated Motion

The Integrative Motion Award provides researchers with the tools and technology to explore EMG and it’s physiological integrations. Each winner will receive a $5,000 stipend, Trigno EMG equipment provided by Delsys, and either Moxy or VO2master equipment for physiological sensing.

Selected candidates will utilize Delsys’ integrative technology to examine the interplay between the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems of the human body.
