Loves to chat about orthoses, prosthetics and how to make them as optimal as possible, for every patient!

Veerle graduated from KU Leuven in 2006 as a civil mechanical-electrical engineer, with a specialization in biomedical engineering techniques. She immediately started working at the then K.H.Kempen (now Thomas More) in a shared assignment research (in the early days of Mobilab) and teaching.

In those initial years, her research primarily focused on ankle-foot orthoses, and in 2014, she earned her Ph.D. with a dissertation titled "Numerical simulation of the mechanical behavior of ankle-foot orthoses to enhance the patients' functional outcome" at KU Leuven.

To this day, she continues to combine her work at Mobilab & Care with a teaching assignment in the Orthopaedic program. In this role, she teaches subjects like orthopaedic  technological design, technological design orthoses and digital design, among others.

Within Mobilab & Care, her primary area of interest revolves around anything related to orthoses and prostheses. She has recently collaborated on research projects such as Orthosolid, Motion, and Assist3d.
