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

Tim Chau
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 Ogink
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 Jonkman
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 Kregting
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 Meuwese
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 Wijn
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.
