About Me

Victor Sluiter studied Electrical and Electrotechnical Engineering at Saxion University of Applied Sciences, and got his degree in 2001. After that he worked as a design engineer in several companies, before switching to the University of Twente in 2010. Within the University he has designed several setups (for example: PowerSensor ), and helped in the realization of the electrical part of setups for the department of Biomechanical Engineering.

At this moment he is (mainly) working in three projects:

  • BioMechTools where he works together with a PhD student to create an ultrasound-based setup to track bone in the human body in 3D.
  • Symbitron, which is aiming to make a personalized exoskeleton. The Wiki describes our EtherLab setup.
  • The ArmWorks Lab, where he consults in the equipment and / or measurement methods to be used.

Since 2013 he is giving the “programming” course in the Minor Biorobotics, using the mbed platform.
