About Me

Jaap Buurke, PT, PhD, received his PhD in 2005 from the University of Twente for his work on recovery of gait after stroke. He is the manager of the “Rehabilitation Technology research cluster” at Roessingh Research and Development, holds the chair of Technology supported human movement analysis at the University of Twente (Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science, Biomedical Signals and Systems group ) Enschede, the Netherlands , is adjunct professor at North Western University Chicago (USA), senior researcher at Roessingh Rehabilitation Centre and medical scientific director of IMDI SPRINT , president of the Dutch society for neurorehabilitation “Neurorevalidatie-Keypoint” and a member of the Dutch expert group on Neurorehabilitation .  His research focuses on human movement analysis with specific expertise in kinesiology (neuromuscular control and biomechanics) after stroke. H e is actively involved in a diversity of (inter)national projects focusing on motor control, movement analysis, rehabilitation robotics and active assistive devices.
