ABOUT HJARNKRAFT

Hjarnkraft was founded by Gertrud Öste. Her husband, Bengt Öste, was working as a news reporter for a major TV channel when their daughter was seriously injured in a car accident. After acute hospital care, they found there was no qualified rehabilitation centre for people who had acquired a severe brain injury. Gertrud therefore started to contact other associations for people with disabilities and found one which worked with people with mild acquired brain injury.  Hjärnkraft started as a trial group within this association and eventually went on to form a key part of the organisation.
