Introduction
My current research efforts as a PhD candidate (Hanze University, TNO, UMCG) and Research Scientist (TNO) focus on the potential of wearable sensor technology and smartphone apps for the early detection of stress-related problems and creation of personalized feedback on resilience, for instance via unobtrusive monitoring resting Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and sleep.

Article
Background: Embedding Web-based interventions within physiotherapy has potential, but knowledge on patient adherence to these interventions is limited. Introduction: This study explores which patient-, intervention-, and environment-related factors are determinants of adherence to the online component of e-Exercise, a 12-week blended interventio...

Objective: To systematically assess contemporary knowledge regarding behavioral physical activity interventions including an activity monitor (BPAI+) in adults with overweight or obesity. Methods: PubMed/MEDLINE, Embase, CINAHL, PsycINFO, CENTRAL, and PEDro were searched for eligible full-text articles up to 1 July 2015. Studies eligible for inc...

[Article and Abstract in Dutch] Inleiding: Door eHealth kan zorg op afstand worden aangeboden tegen een lage prijs, wat bijdraagt aan de kosteneffectiviteit van zorg. Ondanks de mogelijkheden wist in 2015 slechts 2% van de patiënten dat een fysiotherapeutische eHealth interventie beschikbaar was en werden deze nauwelijks ingezet. Dit kwalitatieve o...
Article
Full-text available
The emergence of wearable sensors that allow for unobtrusive monitoring of physiological and behavioural patterns introduces new opportunities to study the impact of stress in a real-world context. This study explores to what extent within-subject trends in daily Heart Rate Variability (HRV) and daily HRV fluctuations are associated with longitudin...

Background: The emergence of smartphones and wearable sensor technologies enables opportunities to easily and unobtrusively monitor physiological and psychological data related to an individual's resilience. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) has promise as a biomarker for resilience based on between-subject population studies, but observational studies...

Occupational stress can cause health problems, productivity loss or absenteeism. Resilience interventions that help employees positively adapt to adversity can help prevent the negative consequences of occupational stress. Due to advances in sensor technology and smartphone applications, relatively unobtrusive self-monitoring of resilience-related...
Article
Introduction: E-Exercise is an effective 12-week blended intervention consisting of around five face-to-face physiotherapy sessions and a web-based application for patients with hip/knee osteoarthritis. In order to facilitate effective implementation of e-Exercise, this study aims to identify physiotherapists' experiences and determinants related...

Question
I am currently starting as a PhD student and want to start managing my references and archiving my PDF's etc. right from the get-go. I've found several topics on this on ResearchGate from 2012 and 2015, but because of the possible upgrades that reference software packages have gotten since then I thought it would be good to discuss this once more. What do you think is the best reference software available right now?
