This is the twelfth year that we have awarded the Prize and it is the intention of Delsys to continue this annual event in perpetuity. We wish to share with you the great pleasure we have in shepherding the increasing interest in the Delsys Prize.

This year we received 164 entries from 30 countries. The entries represented a remarkably broad range of interests in diverse areas as Biomechanics, Kinesiology, Signal Processing, Speech Pathology, Neuromuscular Assessment, Robotics, Rehabilitation, Facial EMG, fMRI, TMS, and various other areas.
