Nerrolyn Ramstrand

Professor
Department of Rehabilitation , School of Health and Welfare
Senior Advisor
Executive office , School of Health and Welfare

Nerrolyn Ramstrand divides her time between two positions at Jönköping University 1/senior advisor to the president on issues related to internationalisation and 2/as a professor in the Department of Rehabilitation at the School of Health and Welfare.  

Nerrolyn’s research focuses on identifying factors that affect the health and wellbeing of individuals with disabilities who require prosthetic and orthotic devices. Her current research emphasis is on evaluating the effects that prosthetic and orthotic devices may have on reducing the level of attention required for persons with a disability to perform specific tasks.  Nerrolyn also has a keen interest in prosthetic and orthotic educational issues and has published a number of scientific papers related to the area.  She is a member of the CHILD research group. 

Nerrolyn is very active within the international prosthetic and orthotic community and serves on several committees for the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics, including the scientific committee. She currently serves as one of four editors-in-chef of the major international journal for prosthetics and orthotics (Prosthetics and Orthotics International).

 

Key words
