My background includes working as a Mechanical Engineer for the biggest and most badass Theme Park โ€œDe Efteling" in Europe. I designed and tested constructions for roller coasters, childrenโ€™s playgrounds, animatronics, steam locomotives, people movers, and much more.

Leveraging these wide experiences, I started with the invention and design of a novel micro hydraulic controlled hand prosthesis. Iโ€™ve developed this product from scratch, came up with all ideas, and made the designs, drawings, testbeds, and prototypes to get to a Proof Of Concept.

I co-founded a company to develop, manufacture, and market this hand prosthetic. My role as Sr. R&D Engineer was to evolve this product into the next generation of hydraulic-controlled hand prosthetics. This is now a product that is available in the market and used by satisfied customers all over the world.

Odds are I have designed or been involved in something in the same category as the product you are looking to develop.

Experience

  • CEO | Poirters Creative Innovations (PCI) PCI AS ยท Self-employed Jan 2022 – Present 1 yrs 1 mos Fรฅberg, Innlandet, Norway 3D Mechanical Design, Prototyping, and Testing of robotics, machines, and other products.

    The most complex and most satisfying project has been the development of a novel hand prosthetic. This project was necessary to give today's hand prosthetic users a better alternative to the products that are on the market. Imagine going through everyday life with a hand that breaks, stops, or falls apart every time you use it for a realistic task. Unfortunately, that's the reality of today's products.
  • Co-Founder | Senior R&D Engineer | Hy5Pro Hy5Pro ยท Full-time Jan 2015 – Mar 2022 7 yrs 2 mos Oslo, Oslo, Norway Development, Mechanical Design, Testing, production, and marketing/sales of an innovative electric/hydraulic controlled hand prosthetic.
  • Owner | Hypo Engineering (NL) Hypo Engineering ยท Self-employed Jan 1999 – Jan 2002 3 yrs 's-Hertogenbosch, NB, Netherlands Design and mechanical Engineering for production-related machines.

Education

  • Polytechnic Department of Mechanical Engineering Bachelor, Mechanical Engineering 1985 – 1990

Other experience

  • Other Practical Experience For about 12 years I've had a mechanical workshop. This workshop consisted of a CNC lathe, a manual lathe, and a manual milling machine. These machines were used for producing parts for hand prosthetic prototypes, mechanical art projects, and other prototypes I've built.

    At this point, I still have a manual lathe and a 3D printer in my workshop. For producing high-quality and cost-effective parts I have a network in place.
