About me

  • Adjunct Professor of Physiotherapy at the Department of Women’s and
    Children’s Health from September 1, 2019.
    Primary position: Operations Manager at Astrid Lindgren Children’s


  • Eva Weidenhielm Broström’s research involves children and adults who have
    problems with the musculoskeletal system, especially children with
    rheumatological or neurological diseases and with orthopaedic problems.
    Professor Broström has built up a computerised three-dimensional motion
    analysis system at MotorikLab at Astrid Lindgren Children’s Hospital, which
    makes it possible to quantify dynamic biomechanical variables with high
    precision during movement.
    The research results have been quickly transferred to clinical practice,
    where for example gait analysis and functional tests are now used in
    investigations to select a treatment method and to evaluate treatment
    outcomes. Currently, Weidenhielm Broström’s research focuses, in
    collaboration with other research groups nationally and internationally, on
    developing and using measures for patient experience, physical activity and
    treatment outcomes in paediatrics.
