Meet the interns
ViSi Mobile is a technology that allows for continuous monitoring of hospitalised patients. Merlijn is studying the impact of the technology on patients’ well-being. Thereby she aims to develop a design methodology for creating technologies that improve users’ well-being.
Sticky exercises’ is a digital solution for rehabilitating patients that have to do home exercises. It consists of visual reminders and an app that shows patients videos of themselves performing the exercise with verbal instructions of their physiotherapist. Jolein hopes this will help them do their exercises more often and also in the right manner. In a pilot study she investigate user experiences of the ‘sticky exercises’ solution and the effect on self-efficacy
Ryan OerlemansAvans Healthcare & Technology
In collaboration with Sensiks, supplier of the sensory reality pod, Ryan is determining how this can be applied within the Radboudumc. Research must be carried out for this purpose, user cases must be drawn up and projects initiated.
Sjoerd is actively designing a business model for a preventive e-Health concept that could improve the quality of life of persons with hypo-unawareness. By means of creativity Sjoerd is connecting viability, desirability and feasibility into a sustainable concept.
Jeremy TanHAN Communication & Multi Media Design
What tools do we use @REshape during our projects like Design Thinking and how do we keep track of the results? Jeremy will provide the necessary structure for us during the internship. His dream is to be part of the new design thinking generation!
Chantal JansenHAN Communication & Multi Media Design
During her internship Chantal will help us with the branding of the activities and methods we use @REshape. She also already hosted a workshop during our lunch & learn about idea killers.
Jelske de JongRU Biomedical Sciences
During her internship, Jelske will be focussing on telemonitoring using the Checkme. This is a small device that can help patients monitor their vital parameters easily at home. The goal is to determine the user experience of the Checkme.
Tim ChauRU Biomedical Sciences, Health Technology Assessment
Tim’s goal is to find the user experiences of the “virtuele poli”. He’s doing qualitative research and a headroom analysis. By determining the wishes and need of the user a recommendation can be done on how to proceed with the project.
Paula OginkRU Medicine, research internship
Paula is working on a pilot study about the Checkme. This small device can easily measure the systolic blood pressure and may be used at home to improve hypertensive care in the future.
Inge JonkmanRU Biomedical Sciences
During her internship Inge focuses on finding patterns and associations between adverse effects and certain parameters, in patients with CML. The goal is to eventually improve treatment for CML patients and improve their quality of life.
Lindy KregtingRU Biomedical Sciences, communication profile
Lindy is working on a communication plan for a hospital wide implementation of the ‘virtuele polikliniek’ which will be aimed at both patients and employees within the Radboudumc. By doing qualitative research, the best strategy will be determined and further elaborated.
Rob MeuweseRU Biomedical Sciences, communication profile
During his internship Rob is making a communication plan to support the implementation of continuous monitoring in both the clinic and the “Virtuele poli”. He will focus on the communication to patients as well as nurses, doctors and heads of departments.
Stan WijnRU Biomedical Sciences, Health Technology Assessment
Stan developed an iPhone app as a succession to Ester’s report that enables patients to share health data with researchers. Being completely patient-centered, patients are able to determine which and with whom to share health data. Moreover, they have to ability to share ideas for future medical research. The app received very positive comments by a patient-panel.
Jarek KeirenHAN Communication & Multi Media Design
The task given to Jarek consists of analyzing and improving the communication streams which are mainly focussed on social media. The goal is to have a better organized workflow combined with a more effective social media strategy. The seconday task consists of analyzing and improving the current image and knowledge about REshape among Radboudumc colleagues.
Marvin KregtingHAN Communication & Multi Media Design
Marvin is one of the team members of Hacking Health Valley (Nijmegen) 2017. He supports us by designing promotion material and several social media activities on Facebook and Twitter. The goal is to raise enough participants to make Hacking Health Valley (Nijmegen) 2017 a succes.
Irene BoumanHAN Communication & Multi Media Design
Irene will be designing the experience around the Connected Health Kit, a new form of telemonitoring. She will be focussing on informing patients in the best way possible when they get such a Health kit at home.
Willem CoxRU Science management and innovation
His main task is to analyse the patient and physiotherapist’s needs in the care process. The goal is to achieve a higher loyalty in the exercises the patient received from it’s physiotherapist.
Pien KoopmansTU/e Biomedical Technology
During this internship Pien is the projectleader on the same project Willem is working on. Her task is to make sure there are simply said: results. She starts up the project and will also be responsible for publishing a scientific article about the subject.
Shalouw SophyHAN Communication & Multi Media Design
One of the tasks of REshape is to Inspire and to Educate, Shalouw focussed his internship on creating content that helped with this goal. He created multiple videos of projects and activities to give our colleagues a better insight into health(care) innovation.
Renee did her Master Thesis about sharing knowledge within virtual communities of practice. Her research shows if this is associated with positive effects such as innovation and job satisfaction. She also checked if there are any adverse effects from the use of online platforms like (techno) stress.
She started her internship explosive with participating in the hackathon Hacking Health in 2016 and giving a design thinking workshop for first-year medical students! Since then nothing can stop Eva…… During her internship she made a great digital brochure for children with urological problems.
Ester wrote a report about the user research of personally-managed and self-collected health data from a personal health record. As a platform Hereismydata was used. This has led to recommendations on medical ethics, consent and data security.
