After studying Human Movement Sciences in Groningen, Teun Aalbers obtained his Ph.D. in 2016 at Radboud UMC in Nijmegen. In the context of his dissertation entitled "eHealth in the primary prevention of cognitive decline; the Brain Aging Monitor Study ”, he conducted research into middle-aged health promotion. Aalbers had games developed for this research. After his PhD and a two-year PostDoc, Aalbers entered the serious gaming industry at GainPlay Studio. Since 2014 he has been responsible for business development there. A first spin-off has been set up from GainPlay Studio, aimed at the treatment of overweight and obesity by dietitians; Digest Inn. Aalbers sees it as a major challenge to playfully return the end users of their games to the control of health issues. Putting people as a playing being at the center and tapping into and utilizing the intrinsic curiosity of people is what it is all about for him.
