Christophe Everarts

Christophe Everarts graduated, Magna Cum Laude, from Université catholique de Louvain with a Master in Electromechanical engineering. During his studies, he spent a semester at EPFL, one of the most renowned engineering school in Europe.

He then started his PhD in the field of robotics prosthesis for amputees, more specifically on energy efficient ankle-knee prosthesis. As part of his PhD, he spent one year at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the Biomechatronics Group which is one of the world leader in the active prosthesis field. He design there a new kind of Continuously Variable Transmission allowing ratio changing at rest. This design is now patented. The PhD defense is planned for end of 2016.

In 2013, he co-founded Quimesis SPRL. He is now head of the mechanics department, supervising the mechanics team, from design to production. Besides that, his skills includes mechatronics devices dimensioning and design, optimization, control design.
