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.

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 and we are committed to illuminating outstanding contributions to the field.

We would like to thank the Delsys Prize Review Board Members: Dr. Jim Richards (UK), Dr. Kevin Englehart (Canada), Dr. Frans C.T. van der Helm (The Netherlands), and Dr. William Zev Rymer (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 13th Annual Delsys Prize in 2015.
