I’m Martijn Wierstra and this year I am a trainer at Pulse Racing. Together with the other trainers we are looking at what the best method are to train our paraplegic athletes, so that they can achieve maximum results during the Cybathlon in 2020. ┬áThis is challenging to do because so many different aspects need to be taken into account, such as the possibilities of the cross-loop, but also finding the ideal stimulation pattern. The interaction you have with the athletes is very nice, fun, and educational. I think being a member of Pulse Racing is ideal in addition to my studies because I am able to practice what I study and can apply things that I have learned, in addition, it is great to combine with your studies if you plan this well. I also gain a lot of contacts with students and organizations that I can certainly use later.
