TNSRE serves the community of biomedical engineers and clinical researchers who work at the intersection of neuroscience and physical medicine. We publish novel approaches and technologies for better understanding neural systems, human movement, and the relationships between them, with a focus on assistive devices that improve life for patients, for practicing clinicians, and for everyday use.

Henk G. Kortier (M'14) received the M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands, where he has been working toward the Ph.D. degree at the biomedical signals and system group since 2010. This Ph.D. work is part of the STW “PowerSensor” project which aims for the development of a glove instrumented with miniature inertial, magnetic and force/torque sensors. Eventually, the glove will be used to assess the hand interaction in ADL tasks.
