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.

Field/Discipline
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.

My research focuses on biomechanics and how it changes over time, for example as a result of an intervention. I am also interested in the integration of technology into healthcare treatments for monitoring and rehabilitation purposes.

Typical examples of my research are the study of upper limb coordination and muscle activity in people with dystrophy affecting the shoulder muscles and the analysis of performance of pattern-recognition upper limb prostheses. I am currently involved in the biomechanical testing of upper limb exoskeletons for persons with muscular dystrophy and in the development of portable motion capture technologies for virtual tele-rehabilitation after stroke.
