Jasper is a human movement scientist (VU Amsterdam 2002) who holds a PhD in biomechanical engineering (UT 2009). The focus of his research is on the analysis of human movement (from a kinetic, kinematic and exercise physiological perspective) in the field of physical rehabilitation and sports. Central themes are individual movement patterns, the effects of fatigue on movement patterns in relation to injury development (in particular during running) and measuring, monitoring and (re-training) kinematics outside the laboratory by means of inertial magnetic measurement units. Jasper teaches in the Master’s program of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Twente. In the 2015 fall semester Jasper was a Fulbright scholar (visiting professor) at the University of Kentucky, College of Health Science in the BioMotion lab where he studied analysis of movement in rehabilitation and sports.

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.
