About Gustav Jarl

Gustav Jarl is an associate professor of medicine at Örebro university and member of the research environment Research Enabling an Active Life (REAL) .

Research

His main research interest is diabetic foot complications. Current projects aim to bring forth effective assistive devices to prevent and heal foot ulcers, study regional variations in lower limb amputations in Sweden, and study socioeconomic and other risk factors for lower limb amputation. Other projects are related to biomechanical theory, patient adherence to wearing therapeutic footwear to prevent foot ulcers and validation of instruments for evaluation of function in children, youth and adults with disability.

Gustav Jarl has an active international research collaboration, including participation in the International Working Group on the Diabetic Foot’s work with systematic reviews and international guidelines for offloading and healing of diabetic foot ulcers. He is also engaged as a reviewer for international research journals and meetings.
