The J. Carlo De Luca Award 2022
Carlo J. DeLuca is widely recognized for introducing engineering principles to the field of Neurophysiology and more recently for combining principles of Motor Control with the fundamentals of Biomechanics. His research has made breakthroughs on the frontiers of neuromuscular control, signal processing, and electromyographic sensor technology. He authored 122 peer-reviewed articles, 21 book chapters, and 26 patents. His writings have been cited over 21,000 times. His body of work includes “Muscles Alive”, often referred to as the “bible of electromyography”. Prof. De Luca made lasting contributions to ISEK. He assisted John Basmajian, his mentor, in setting up the initial structure of ISEK. He served twice as past president of ISEK (1988 and 1990) and organized the highly successful ISEK 1979 Congress in Boston. Under his presidency he established the Journal of Electromyography & Kinesiology and served as its Editor-in-Chief. Professor De Luca believed strongly in providing opportunities for young investigators and trained more than forty M.S. and Ph.D. students. Many of these individuals are now leading researchers and engineers in the field.
