The De Luca Foundation is pleased to announce that the winner of the 2019 Phase II App Development Competition is Prof. Bart Jansen of Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
Using a 2-Sensor Trigno Avanti Mobile System kindly provided by Delsys, Inc., Prof. Jansen and his team developed “Ghostly,” a game-based rehabilitation app for patients with motor and neuromuscular disorders.
For developing a robust app with clear intentions for rehab usage and an entertaining user experience, Prof. Jansen will receive a total cash award of $7,500.00 USD.
The “Ghostly” app is available for free download on the De Luca Foundation’s website. Learn more about Prof. Jansen and the “Ghostly” app here.
This is the first year of the App Development Competition, which provides a chance to win equipment and cash awards by developing EMG-centric applications for mobile devices with real-world viability. We hope that the establishment of this competition will encourage forward-thinking teams to utilize sensor technology in new and unique ways for EMG-driven patient care solutions.
Please keep an eye out for announcements regarding future competitions and opportunities in 2020.
