Owner and orthopaedic surgeon
Rob is an orthopaedic surgeon specialising in the knee and shoulder. His expertise lies in sports injuries and he has a broad experience in complex knee injuries. He often encounters patients who previously had a knee brace with a poor fit and insufficient stability during use.
He has always been interested in technology and he thought this adventure would give him a new dimension to his expertise. That is why he and Toine came up with the idea to join forces and create a new brace that would fulfil all the medical wishes that Rob had in mind for a brace.
Owner and technical engineer
Toine is a technical engineer and is since 25 years, owner of his own company. Toine’s work consists of a lot of interaction with new technical developments.
Aside to that, motocross has always played a big part in Toine’s life. He practiced motocross sport in his younger years and is still very involved in the sport on a weekly basis. He got the idea for B&C custom bracing when an acquaintance of Toine sustained a serious knee injury while racing. In the arduous search for an adequate brace, Toine and Rob came up with the idea to pool their knowledge and create a new knee brace that also can be used in motocross.
Rob is in the lead with regard to knowledge about the human body and Toine provides his technical knowledge. The main goals for the new brace were to generate the most true-to-life fit, using the most durable and high quality brace technology and materials. In this way, Toine is also pleased to be able to contribute to the future of motocross.
