Care and well-being - Research group Mobilab & Care

Malnutrition in swallowing problems

Innovation manager for the team, end-user driven with the aim of creating impact at the intersection of technology and wellbeing.

As innovation manager, Lieven De Maesschalck bridges the gap between Mobilab & Care's research and governments, companies, funding channels... This way he continuously spots opportunities for new research applications at home and abroad.

Furthermore, from Mobilab & Care, he serves as the national contact point for AAATE (Association for the Advancement of Assistive Technology in Europe) and participates in various boards of directors.

Driven by research and innovation, he has also been researching adapted nutrition for people with swallowing difficulties for more than 20 years. He worked on the development of artisanally prepared bread meals that are both tasty and safe to swallow. That research resulted in an adapted breakfast in six different flavors that is also available on the market.
