Team

Andreas headshotANDREAS HECK (Co-Founder)

As Co-Founder I take pride in the global impact Physiotutors has on defining standards in online physiotherapy education. I continue to go to work motivated daily to build a meaningful platform that fulfills the learning needs of physiotherapists of all levels.

 

Kai headshotKAI SIGEL (Co-Founder)

Physiotutors has started as a passionate student project and I’m proud to say it has evolved into one of the most respected continuing education providers for physiotherapists around the globe. Our main goal will always remain the same: to help physiotherapists make the most out of their studies and their careers enabling them to provide the best evidence-based care for their patients.

 

Sunny headshotSUNNY SANDHU (Podcast Host)

Being part of the Physiotutors, more specifically the podcast, I get to not only further develop my own skillset for the patients I see and the students I come in contact with, but also fellow physiotherapists & students looking to up their game for their benefit and their patients’ outside of the classrooms, weekend seminars and all that other stuff, I’m proud to be a part of something that has a global impact on our profession that we hold so dearly!

 

Ellen headshotELLEN VANDYCK (Research Manager)

My goal is to deliver high-quality research findings in a highly accessible format for anyone interested in improving his or her knowledge and practical skills in the field of physiotherapy. Next to this I want to critically review the evidence to keep you up to date with most recent findings and stimulate you to improve your clinical thinking skills.

My goal is to narrow the gap between research and clinical practice. Helping you to be more critical of your own actions and studies you read. Not by providing answers, but by questioning everything.

 

Kirsten headshotKIRSTEN HOELANDT (Content Specialist: Sports Physiotherapy)

It is my passion to help athletes return to their sport through education, motivation, and good rehabilitation. Now I have made it my mission to pass on all the knowledge I have gained during my Master’s in Sports Physiotherapy, as well as in the clinic and on various sports fields in and around Amsterdam via Physiotutors.

From my student days, we practiced physiotherapy skills through the homemade videos created by Kai and Andreas. I am happy to contribute to the development of Physiotutors. My goal is to mix my creativity and skills within videography with the ideas that Kai and Andreas have about the future of Physiotutors.
