Staff members with discipline Rehabilitation

Academia develops at the interface of different fields. This is one reason why the University of Groningen is home to a wide range of fields, each with a great number of subject specialists. The overview below, which is based on a standard categorization of fields, will help you find the right expert for each field. If you cannot find the expert you are looking for in this list, try searching via a related field or faculty; you may find him or her there.

Postdoc Recovery after critical illness
Focussing on action-perception learning and development from a combined perspective of Ecological Psychology and dynamical systems theory. Using Uncontrolled Manifold analyses and multifractal analyses to asses stability, variability, and interaction dynamics of the action-perception system. Studies exploratory processes to determine how new behaviors emerge and are stabilized during developmentand and learning. Uses a task perspective to develop serious games to train upper limb prosthetic use.

In my research I focus on the neuromechanical changes that underlie adaptation, for example after rehabilitation or as a consequence of aging or an impairment. In addition, using the principles of biomedical engineering and computer science I aim to develop technologies for rehabilitation and health monitoring. Typical examples of my research are the study of upper limb biomechanics of people with dystrophy and the performance analysis of pattern-recognition upper limb prostheses.
