Monique Tabak is associate professor at the University of Twente and Roessingh Research and Development, with a background in Biomedical Engineering. She focuses her research on Personalized eHealth Technology for Rehabilitation, including self-management programmes for COPD and comorbidities, cardiac rehabilitation or asthma, but also interactive eHealth technologies like Virtual Reality for chronic pain. She specifically investigates the shared-decision making triangle between healthcare provider, patient and technology. She has vast experience in eHealth research for patients with chronic conditions and within rehabilitation by participating in >20 (inter)national research projects (e.g. BIONIC (H2020), IS-ACTIVE (AAL), InLife (H2020), VIREP (Interreg), TOPFIT CitizenLab (Regiodeal) and in close collaboration with local care centres and patients. In addition, Monique is part of the management team of the cross-faculty, transdisciplinary research programme at the University of Twente. She is also programme coordinator ‘Health and Well-being’ in the Digital Society programme from the Association of Universities in the Netherlands (VSNU).

Anke is a human movement scientist working at Roessingh Research and Development since 2001. She got her PhD at the University of Twente in 2010 on a randomized controlled trial, in which the effect of an implantable two-channel peroneal nerve stimulation was examined in comparison with usual care, consisting of a splint or orthopedic shoe, in chronic stroke survivors with a drop foot.
Currently she is involved in several (inter)national research projects concerning stimulation of motor relearning in neurological disorders using rehabilitation technology (including (soft)robotics and applied gaming), mainly for the upper extremity.
