Dr ir Isabel Van De Keere is an innovator, strategist, and problem-solver. She loves building products that make an impact on people’s daily lives. Reading up on social innovation, healthcare technologies, and innovative product design is part of Isabel’s daily routine and always leaves her asking questions like ‘what if we could…’, ‘how could we tackle…’, ‘maybe we should design differently…’. With a background in electro-mechanical engineering and as a biomedical engineering scientist, Isabel is passionate about healthcare technologies, digital health, immersive technologies (VR/AR) and their applications in healthcare, using tech for good, social entrepreneurship, and promoting women in tech.
Isabel is the founder and CEO of Immersive Rehab, a health-tech startup that focuses on the creation and development of interactive environments and games in virtual reality that improve the effectiveness of physical and neuro-rehabilitation. Following a long physical rehab period she went through herself due to a work accident, Isabel decided to start Immersive Rehab in September 2016.
