dr. Erwin de Vlugt
Erwin studied Mechanical Engineering at the TU Delft, where he then worked for twelve years as a researcher and professor of Biomechanics and Biorobotics. He has also worked in the Rehabilitation Medicine unit at the Leiden University Medical Centre. Erwin earned his PhD with a thesis on human-machine interaction and a study of the role played by proprioception (human movement sensors) during different movement tasks. A passion for robotics and the resemblance to the human musculoskeletal system prompted him to develop devices and products based on the perspective of human-machine interaction. He was appointed head of the Technology for Health research group at The Hague University of Applied Sciences in September 2015.+31 (0) 15 - 260 63 89
