The topic of my thesis is to develop a statistical method for an improved analysis of Evoked Potential recordings during Multiple Threshold Tacking of Nociceptive electrocutaneous stimuli. Professor Jan Buitenweg is my supervisor.
I am a Biomedical engineering student. My Thesis will be about the development of a system for the visually impaired and blind to detect people and experience shown emotions, through tactile feedback under Dr. ir. Yan Zhao as my supervisor.
Anja van Gestel
I'm now in the 2nd year of the master track Neurotechnology and Biomechatronics, which is a continuation of the bachelor Electrical Engineering. I will be doing my master thesis in the BSS group with Dr. Ir. Yan Zhao as my supervisor. The topic of my thesis lies within the project to improve gait in PD patients with Smart Glasses and will include the detection of freezing of gait in PD from lower-body segmental accelerometry.
I do my MSc assignment in the framework of the SoftPro project under supervision of Bert-Jan van Beijnum. My work will mainly involve evaluation of different Hand Pose Reconstruction algorithms and systems.
Shanna de Lang
I study Creative Technology. I just started with my bachelor graduation assignment (supervisor Jan Buitenweg).
I will create an app to support doctors with the treatment of patients who are suffering from chronical pain.
The assignment is to implement frequency tagging in the current evoked potentials measurement setup.
I do my master thesis under one of NeuroCIMT project related with the invention or the development of effective feedback for optimizing motor performance of stroke patient, preferably in their daily life.
Keshava Ragavendra Nagarethinam
My master's assignment focuses on quantification of bradykinesia and rigidity using the Power Glove and relate it to the UPDRS. Ciska Heida and Kees van Dijk are my supervisors.
Master student – Biomedical Engineering (BME)
I am a portuguese student in the 4th year of the Integrated Master on Bioengineering, field of Biomedical Engineering, at the Faculty of Engineering of University of Porto. I came to University of Twente as a trainee by the ERASMUS+ program to develop a project in the group, being supervised by the professor Bert-Jan van Beijnum.
I am a Biomedical student from TUDelft at my second year of MSc. I have just started an internship at the BSS group: I work for 3 months on Spinal Cord Stimulation computer modelling under the supervision of Dr. J. Buitenweg.
I am a Biomedical Technology student. In my bachelor assignment at the BSS group I will do a follow-up study on the research that a co student named Robert Schulte last quartile did. I will investigate and optimize certain parameters to make a model that can predict falling for CVA (stroke) patients.

Tineke de Vries
I am a Biomedical Engineering student. My assignment is part of the eNHANCE project and my goal is to detect grasp intention using accelerometers.
I am from China. I am doing my thesis assignment at BSS, which is about patients with low back pain via eHealth solution in the primary care system. I will supervised by Wendy Oude Nijeweme – d’Hollosy and Hermie Hermens.

Enrico Marani (Full professor - Retired)
After receiving the PhD degree he became Head of the Neuroregulation Group, Department of Physiology, Leiden University. Since 1997 he is part-time Professor in Neurophysiology at the BMTI / Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of Twente. His research interests are neuroregulation and neurotechnology, especially in the field of nerve regeneration.
Wim Rutten (Full professor - Retired)
Wim Rutten, professor of Neural Engineering, has a background in (bio)physics and biomedical engineering. He leads the theme Neural and Cellular Engineering, with present emphasis on 1) (intelligent) neural interfacing via cell-cultured multi-micro-electrode probes and 2) the understanding of the brain (circuit dynamics, learning, plasticity) through in vitro neural network research 3) EEG-based Brain-Computer Interfaces for neurofeedback in rehabilitation.
