About Jenny Hedberg Graff

Jenny Hedberg Graff has been employed as an assistant professor in Occupational Therapy at the School of Health Sciences since November 2023. She has an occupational therapy degree from Örebro University since 1994, a master’s degree in clinical medical science and a doctorate in Medical Science from Karolinska Institutet. Jenny received her doctorate at Karolinska Institutet in 2022 with the thesis "Upper limb function in children with cerebral palsy; range of motion, botulinum neurotoxin A and accelerometry metrics”.

Jenny has previously been a clinically active occupational therapist in orthopaedics, hand rehabilitation and habilitation. In recent years, the clinical work has been focused on specialist assignments such as orthopedics, hand rehabilitation and on work as a local coordinator for the national follow-up program and the quality register for people with cerebral palsy, CPUP within the habilitation in Sörmland. Since 2022, Jenny is also responsible for the national working group for occupational therapists within CPUP and is part of the national CPUP steering group.


In her ongoing research, Jenny studies children and adults with cerebral palsy in relation to the upper extremities. In one of the projects, a new assessment instrument for thumb function in children with cerebral palsy is being evaluated. In another project, range of motion and function in the upper extremities and possible relations between these are mapped in adults with cerebral palsy. Furthermore, the relationship between range of motion and function in the upper extremities and health, disability and employment are also investigated.


From the autumn of 2023, Jenny teaches occupational therapy at basic and advanced levels.

Collaborations and assignments

Jenny is part of a national research group that is cross-professional. The group's work mainly focuses on evaluating retrospective registry data collected for people with cerebral palsy.
