Daniel Graupe, Ph.D., is Emeritus Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Emeritus Professor of Bioengineering and Emeritus Adjunct Professor of Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago where he co-directs the signal and image processing laboratory. Dr. Graupe is Life Fellow of the IEEE ( Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). He received his BSME and BSEE degrees from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Liverpool, England.

He served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems, with responsibility to Signal Processing (1989-91) and of the IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering 2002-2004). He is presently associate editor of the International Journal of Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering (with responsibility to neural networks), of Neurological Research (with responsibility to Neuroengineering), of Psychline and on the advisory board of the BAM (Basic & Appl. Myology) journal.

He is menber of the Executive Committee of the Board of Directors of the International Society of Bioelectromagnetism. He serves on several committees of the IEEE?s Signal Processing Society and Bioengineering society.

He authored four text books in his field of research, one of which was translated into Russian and into Serbo-Kroatian, another into Chinese and a Spanish translation was recently completed. He also authored chapters in several other books, 90 papers in major scientific journals and over 120 papers in scientific conference proceedings.

Prior to joining the University of Illinois, he held the rank of Distinguished Professor and of the Bodine Chair Professor at Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. In addition, Dr. Graupe is Attending Member of the Staff of the Michael Reese Hospital, Chicago, and has been Springer Visiting Chair Professor at the University of California, Berkeley and visiting professor in the Medical School of Tel-Aviv University, Israel, at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, at the University of Notre Dame, at Academia Sinica, Beijing and Northwestern University, Evanston, IL. He also served on the faculties University of Liverpool, Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and Colorado State University.

Dr. Graupe is the holder of over 20 U.S. patents and of several foreign patents, including the patents for the Parastep electrical stimulation system for ambulation by paraplegics.

Dr. Graupe's functional electrical stimulation system for ambulation by paraplegics was approved in 1994 for sale as safe and effective by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA) - as the first unbraced ambulation system for traumatic paraplegics so approved. It was approved in 2002 for full reimbursement by Medicare and Medicaid.

Dr. Graupe's research interests include: Control Systems, Time Series Analysis, Signal Processing, Biomedical Control, Neural Networks, Blind Adaptive Filtering, Wavelets and Electrical Stimulation.

D. Graupe was the inventor of the Zeta Blocker blind adaptive filter incorporated in several hearing aids (e.g., Strakey Labs and others), which was the first digital system to be part of a hearing aid (1985 and on)

Dr. Graupe was the inventor (1987 and on) of the Parastep Funcional Electrical Stimulation System to allow complete upper-motor-neuron paraplegics to walk short distances without braces. This was the first (and as of 8.1998, the only) electrical stimulation system for ambulation by paraplegics that received FDA (Food & Drugs Administration, USA) approval and is commercially manufactured by Sigmedics, Inc. of Northfield, IL
