By forming a collective with thousands of colleagues, we discover more, learning enjoyment is higher, and the challenges we face in practice are solved faster and better. Join the community of Denkfysio, where innovation is paramount. We aim to connect energetic and driven professionals to advance and change care in their own way. Our passionate team offers an attractive and distinctive program which places your development at the very heart in order for you to grow into a unique professional.
In physical therapy, there is no such thing as one truth. To continue learning is a challenge. In order to perform well, we explore beyond the beaten path. We study the latest discoveries worldwide and question contemporary approaches.
That's how you and I keep each other on our toes and how we collectively invest in the future of our profession both online (through articles, webinars and professional discussions) and offline (through events, education and training).
Bart Roelofs: Founder, sports physiotherapist, entrepreneur and always looking for new developments & challenges in healthcare! Working with my team at Denkfysio to create an inspiring training program feels like a party :-). With this training program we try to "reframe" healthcare in our own way. Reframing means continuing to be critical of the care we offer and adjusting and/or changing it whenever necessary to optimize care. A great example of this is giving patients/clients more self-direction, giving them ownership over their own rehabilitation track and a better understanding of what they are doing and why. Another example is to focus more on health & prevention in our profession, in order for patients/clients to better assess the use of these two pillars to stay fit and healthy in the future. After all, that's the goal that initiated Denkfysio’s creation. To make a positive impact on the care of our patients/clients! Feel like bouncing some ideas off each other?

Charlotte van Westerhuis: Crazy about everything relating to running and nutrition. Challenging myself and others is something I love to do. Both while being a student of the master Human Movement Sciences - Sport and Nutrition at Maastricht University and in my role at Denkfysio. The online operations of Denkfysio are part of my responsibilities. Creating a platform where healthcare professionals can continue to learn (together) as an addition to our physical training is one of my challenges. Moreover, providing a clear and easy visitor journey is also something I plan to tackle. Do you have questions about the website, accreditation, webinars or online courses? Feel free to shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
Babette Biemans: Mountains, people, cycling, running and food are all part of my weekly routine. After 3,5 years of practical experience as a physiotherapist in a primary care practice, I am currently pursuing the master’s degree Human Movement Sciences which I am doing part-time at the University of Maastricht. When I'm not studying, I like to put all my enthusiasm into developing new ideas that either fail or succeed from time to time. I largely fulfill the latter aspect at Denkfysio and I love it.
At Denkfysio I am mainly responsible for participant contact, which means that every now and then you may receive one of my emails! In addition, I arrange the delicious lunch that you get served during the training, I make sure the speaker has a pleasant overnight stay in Nijmegen and on top of that I do accreditation requests. When I am less occupied arranging things concerning the courses, I keep myself busy with the projects 'tailor made training courses' (check it out!) and 'health'. The latter project is currently not much on the foreground, but I assure you, behind the scenes we are working on it! Think of: prevention, lifestyle, positive health, district and patient-oriented work. Do you have any inspiration for me!? Send me an email: email@example.com.
Saskia Gudde: Enthusiastic, motivated and searching for challenges. Denkfysio offers me plenty of room to keep moving, both physically and within the company. I enjoy the atmosphere within the team and the drive with which we develop new training courses and projects together.
Parallel to my work, I gain a lot of knowledge during the Master Sports and Movement Innovation. It encourages me to continue looking at our activities with a fresh and critical eye, and allows me to directly apply my newly acquired knowledge within our company.
You can come to me with all your questions about accreditation and our social channels. Plus, I am the person to contact if you are a starting physiotherapist interested in getting in touch with us. In fact, for starters we have an interesting project in its infancy, so keep an eye out! Would you like to contribute ideas? I would love to hear from you!

Youri Derksen (intern): I have been working at Denkfysio as the new intern since a few weeks ago. This is part of my full-time Communication studies at the HAN in Nijmegen. During my studies I learn all about organizing events, writing press releases, thinking up plans and making a website. I will perform these activities at Denkfysio as well.
I have been playing soccer for 20 years with R.K.H.V.V. in Huissen but also enjoy sports such as running and swimming. I am confident that I can show my creativity at this young company and my goal is to mean heaps for Denkfysio. In a Tuesday challenge I will introduce myself further, so stay tuned for that! Curious about me or any other questions? Feel free to send me a message at email@example.com
