About Me

 

Prof. J.S. (Hans) Rietman MD, PhD is physiatrist and professor in Rehabilitation Medicine & Technology at the University of Twente. He performs his clinical work as a rehabilitation physician at Roessingh Center for Rehabilitation. He is also appointed at the research institute Roessingh Research and Development and member of the Biomedical Technological Institute of the University of Twente and adjunct professor at Northwestern University Chicago.

In 2014 he became president of the Netherlands Society of Rehabilitation Medicine (NSRM).

His research focuses on the clinical use of technology in restoration of functions in patients with neurological disorders and patients with amputations of upper and lower extremities. He is actively involved in a diversity of (inter-) national projects focusing on Rehabilitation Robotics and Active Assistive Devices. In 2016 he became medical director of the Center of research excellence Innovative Medical Devices Initiative (IMDI) SPRINT and since 2018 he is leader of this national program IMDI 2.0. He is co-editor of the Dutch book of Rehabilitation Medicine for adults and the Dutch book of Amputation and Prosthetics of the lower extremities and (co)author of more than 100 Pubmed cited articles.
