During his master Clinical Human Movement Sciences, Coen did two internships at the department of Physiology. In these internships he firstly investigated the effects of wearing a cooling vest on the exercise performance and secondly he studied the effects of physical inactivity on cardiovascular structure and function in patients with or without a myocardial infarction. After his graduation he joined the Integrative Physiology group as a PhD student and he will focus on a new device to measure the human fluid balance continuously during exercise. Body hydration plays a vital role in the performance of professional athletes. The application of existing methods for estimating body hydration is limited, since athletes need to interrupt their exercise for the measurements. Therefore, the overall aim of this proposal is to develop and validate an accurate method that measures body hydration directly, non‐invasively, fast and without interrupting the exercise of the athlete.
