PhD Roeland Kleipool

As an anatomist with a background in the human movement sciences I focus my research on the variations in the anatomy and try to relate this to the (pathological) functioning of the hindfoot complex. I use state-of-the-art 3D imaging techniques and processing to do quantitative research of the anatomy and functioning of the hindfoot. I try to answer functional and anatomical questions that clinicians encounter with athletes and other patients and try to make the relationship between shape and function more clear. Furthermore, I facilitate and participate in anatomical research other than the region of the hindfoot.
