Ivo Tiemessen (Ph.D. human movement science) serves as a co-founder and recovery specialist at ProCcare (May 2015). His interest in cooling and heating as a recovery- and therapeutic modality originated in 2008 when cold and heat became a hot research topic and started to become implemented in (sports) practice.
In his works, he focusses on recovery regimes and its thermophysiology, the clinical effects described in the literature, and the integration of this knowledge into concepts that can help (sports)practice.
He is an experienced researcher in applied research, working with several elite athletes, and organizations including the Dutch Army and fire brigade, presented at several conferences throughout the world and tutors at the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam and the HAN Arnhem, the Netherlands.
