Research Group Technology for Health

A long, healthy life is what we are all hoping for. Thanks to advances in medical knowledge and a higher level of medical technology, the average life expectancy continues to rise. Yet all of these technological possibilities do not automatically lead to a better quality of life. Strong social cohesion is equally as important. Technology needs to serve the patient and promote interpersonal contact, whether this involves the use of care robots, 3D printing, domotics or other devices.

About The Professor

Erwin studied Mechanical Engineering at the TU Delft, where he then worked for twelve years as a researcher and professor of Biomechanics and Biorobotics. He has also worked in the Rehabilitation Medicine unit at the Leiden University Medical Centre. Erwin earned his PhD with a thesis on human-machine interaction and a study of the role played by proprioception (human movement sensors) during different movement tasks. A passion for robotics and the resemblance to the human musculoskeletal system prompted him to develop devices and products based on the perspective of human-machine interaction. He was appointed head of the Technology for Health research group at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in September 2015.
