Dr. Hans Bussmann

Hans Bussmann is Associate Professor of the Dept. of Rehabilitation Medicine of Erasmus MC University Medical Center Rotterdam, the Netherlands. His research aims at understanding and improving physical behaviour (PB) of people with chronic conditions, and to apply this in rehabilitation care. In this research the focus is on the use of wearable technology in the “at home” situation. Although the theme of research is not population-specific, my research focuses on people with acquired neurological conditions such as stroke.

Studies - published in about 180 peer-reviewed international papers - include topics as the development, validation and application of objective measurement and feedback devices. Research increasingly focuses at at-home upper-limb treatment and at integrating prolonged daily life measurements with technology-supported exercise. Hans Bussmann initiated the International Conference on the Measurement of Physical Activity and Movement (ICAMPAM) and the International Society for the Measurement of Physical Behaviour (ISMPB).
