Biomechanical evaluation of exoskeletons for the prevention

of Low-Back Pain

Axel S. Koopman

Biomechanic al e valua tion of e xosk ele tons f or the pr even tion of Lo w-Back P ain Ax el S. K oopman

In January 2016, Axel started his 4-years PhD project within the SPEXOR project on exo- skeletons for the prevention of low-back pain. In this EU-project 8 partners from all over Europe participated. Axel was responsible for the biomechanical evaluation of the newly developed prototypes and informed the design process.

Besides his passion for data Axel likes to sport. As a semi-professional marathon speed skater he loves to be on the ice, whether it is on a indoor track or in Austria to skate the alternative ‘Elfstedentocht’.

Axel Koopman was born on January 23, 1992 in Heemskerk, The

Netherlands. He graduated from secondary school in 2010 at the

Bonhoeffer College in Castricum. After three years he obtained his

bachelor, with as specialization “Structure, function and control

of the musculoskeletal system”, in Human Movement Sciences

at the VU. In 2015 he graduated his two-year research master

program with distinction. During his research master program

his interest in the human biomechanical aspects has arisen.
