Keynote at the University of Hasselt

On March 9, I gave a keynote at the closing event of the project ‘Mobile monitoring of movement and joint loading in persons with degenerative hip- and knee problems’,  at the University of Hasselt. The talk’s slides can be found here.


ZOL, KU Leuven and  Hasselt University are cordially inviting you to the closing event of the FWO TBM project:

‘Mobile monitoring of movement and joint loading in persons
with degenerative hip- and knee problems.’

The event will take place on 9.3.2021. Participation is free, but registration is required.
Due to the current COVID-19 regulations, the event will be held online.
If you wish to attend, please register here for the closing event.
