Winner of the 15th Annual Delsys Prize

The De Luca Foundation is pleased to announce that the 15th Annual Delsys Prize for Innovation in Electromyography was awarded to Dr. Mitsuhiro Hayashibe of Tohoku University, Japan.

Dr. Hayashibe’s winning proposal, titled “Evoked Electromyographically Controlled Electrical Stimulation”, was selected from a field of 135 entries from 30 countries. The entries represented a remarkably broad range of interests in diverse areas such as Biomechanics, Exercise Physiology, Signal Processing, Facial EMG, Robotics, Rehabilitation, and various others.

It is heartening to witness the growth and continuing maturation of the field of Electromyography.

We are honored to play a small part in this success story by illuminating outstanding contributions to the field.

We would like to thank the Delsys Prize Review Board Members: Dr. Andrea d’Avella (Italy), Dr. Kevin Englehart (Canada), Dr. Jim Richards (UK), and Dr. Helen Huang (USA), for taking part in choosing the winner.

Many thanks to all of the contributors who participated this year and we invite all to consider participating in the 16th Annual Delsys Prize in 2018.
