Prof. Hayashibe Receives the 15th Annual Delsys Prize for Innovation in Electromyography
Prof. Mitsuhiro Hayashibe Receives the 15th Annual Delsys Prize for Innovation in Electromyography from De Luca Foundation, USA.
The Delsys Prize is an annual competition established in 2003 by Professor Carlo J. De Luca to promote innovative uses of Electromyography. It recognizes advancements in the understanding, techniques/technologies or applications of the Electromyographic signal.
Prof. Hayashibe's winning proposal, titled “Evoked Electromyographically Controlled Electrical Stimulation”, was selected from a field of 135 entries from 30 countries. This work demonstrates a novel technique using evoked electromyography signal to realize joint torque prediction under muscle fatigue and also to enable stable neuroprosthetic muscle control. 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.
The Delsys Prize Review Board Members were: Dr. Andrea d’Avella (Italy), Dr. Kevin Englehart (Canada), Dr. Jim Richards (UK), and Dr. Helen Huang (USA).
Prof. Hayashibe is First Japanese Recipient for this international EMG award.
Dr. Mitsuhiro Hayashibe is a Professor at the Department of Robotics, Graduate School of Engineering, Tohoku University, Japan, and founder of the Neuro- Robotics Lab within the same institution. He is concurrently with the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering, Tohoku University. He obtained PhD at University of Tokyo, and the Habilitation degree at University of Montpellier.
He was previously a tenured research scientist with INRIA and University of Montpellier, France.
