  1. 1. Den hand som föder dig : En studie av risk, mat och moderskap i Sverige och Polen

    Författare :Erik Löfmarck; Kerstin Jacobsson; Elisabet Näsman; Sara Ferlander; Anna Olofsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; risk; everyday life; sociology of risk; food; motherhood; parenting; Poland; Sweden; risk management; construction of risk; risk perception; trust; Sociologi; Sociology;

    Sammanfattning : This is a study of how mothers of young children relate to risk in everyday life, with an emphasis on the in­visible risks associated with modernity in general, and with food in particular. It explores variations and similarities in how mothers deal with risk in two cultural contexts: Sweden and Poland. LÄS MER

  2. 2. To select one hand while using both : neural mechanisms supporting flexible hand dominance in bimanual object manipulation

    Författare :Anna Theorin; Roland Johansson; Fredrik Ullén; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; object manipulation; bimanual coordination; action selection; cerebral cortex; functional laterality; humans; hand; magnetic resonance imaging; transcranial magnetic stimulation; electromyography; Physiology; Fysiologi; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Sammanfattning : In daily activities, the brain regularly assigns different roles to the hands dependingon task and context. Yet, little is known about the underlying neural processes. Thiscertainly applies to how the brain, where each hemisphere primarily controls onehand, manages the between-hand coordination required in bimanual objectmanipulation. LÄS MER

  3. 3. A Helping Hand : On Innovations for Rehabilitation and Assistive Technology

    Författare :Mats Nilsson; Hans von Holst; Metin Akay; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hand function; Mechatronic system; Orthose; Neurological rehabilitation; Brain-Computer Interface; Functional Electric Stimulation;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on assistive and rehabilitation technology for restoring the function of the hand. It presents three different approaches to assistive technology: one in the form of an orthosis, one in the form of a brain-computer interface combined with functional electrical stimulation and finally one totally aiming at rehabilitating the nervous system by restoring brain function using the concept of neuroplasticity.

  4. 4. The Hand in Manual Work - Physiological and Psychophysical studies

    Författare :Lena Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :hand; pressure; muscle activity; laser doppler flowmeter; perception; manual work; hand tool; drilling machine; cutaneous blood flow; wrist orthosis;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on the hand in manual work. In particular, we have studied what happens to skin and muscles when gripping a hand tool. Different aspects of gripping that will be discussed are: pressure on the hand, effects on the skin blood flow, muscle activity and the use of wrist orthoses. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Hand-arm vibration syndrome; Consequences for hand function and quality of life

    Författare :Ragnhild Cederlund; Arbetsterapi och aktivitetsvetenskap; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ortopedi; traumatologi; traumatology; Kirurgi; Surgery; orthopaedics; questionnaires; tests; assessments; outcomes; ill-health; well-being; activities of daily living ADL ; quality of life; hand function; hand symptoms; Vibration exposure; Hand-arm vibration syndrome HAVS ;

    Sammanfattning : Workers exposed to hand-held vibrating machines may risk developing a hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), a condition which can cause chronic impairment and disability. The aims of this thesis were 1) to obtain deeper insight and further knowledge of HAVS and the consequences for hand function, and aspects of quality of life (QoL); 2) to investigate the usefulness of clinical assessments in diagnosing HAVS; 3) to evaluate a treatment method for patients with severe cold intolerance.
