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.
Wietse van Dijk
Wietse van Dijk received the M.Sc. degrees in industrial design engineering and mechanical engineering, in 2008, from the University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands. In 2015, he received the Ph.D. degree from the Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, for his work on human-exoskeleton interaction. His research interests include developing new design approaches for lower extremity exoskeletons, resulting in several new exoskeletons. He is currently working at Royal Philips, The Netherlands.
TNSRE, Featured ArticlesEvaluation of the Achilles Ankle Exoskeleton
This paper evaluates the Achilles exoskeleton. The exoskeleton is intended to provide push-off assistance for healthy subjects during walking. The assistance is provided by a series elastic actuator that has been optimized to provide maximal push-off power. The paper presents... Read more
