Professional Achievements

LIFE FELLOW of the IEEE since 2003

Fellow of the IEEE, since 1985


Invention & Development of 1st FDA-approved & 1st (& only) Commercial Electrical Stimulation System, the PARASTEP, that allows complete thoracic-level Paraplegic to ambulate (1500 ft average, after completing training) independently -See VIDEO & Patents List in PERSONAL PAGES of D. Graupe. Parastep in now Medicare & Medicaid reimbursable. Also founding of Sigmedics Inc. for commercializing that System


Invention & Development of Blind Adaptive Filtering (BAF) System to filter unknown noises from unknown signals -See Patents List in PERSONAL PAGES. Also founding Intellitech Inc. to commercialize 1st BAF system for filtering unknown environmental noise from speech in Hearing Aids (1979)


Considered in the literature as Father of Digital Hearing Aid, for work on incorporating a Blind Digital Filter in Hearing Aids


Development of the LAMSTAR-Large Memory Neural Network (Cf. US Patent # 5,920,852, issued 7/6/99)
