1. Measuring quality of occupational performance based on self-report and observation : development and validation of instruments to evaluate ADL task performance
Sammanfattning : Background People with rheumatic or neurologic conditions are commonly referred for occupational therapy because of decreased ability to perform ADL tasks. Upon referral, occupational therapists use a client-centred, occupationfocused approach when evaluating a person's perceived and observed quality of ADL task performance to clarify the nature and extent of the person’s problems, plan interventions and determine effectiveness of interventions.

Sammanfattning : The thesis focuses on machine learning methods for Earth Observation (EO) data, more specifically, remote sensing data acquired by satellites and drones. EO plays a vital role in monitoring the Earth’s surface and modelling climate change to take necessary precautionary measures. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Traditional design theories have focused on technical functions and more or less disregard a product’s user involvement. The existing methods of ergonomic designare mostly intended for analysis activities. There is a need for new dynamic methods that focus on user-product interactions. LÄS MER

This thesis focuses on how to solve this problem by introducing methods for modelling, user interface design and evaluation. These methods are primarily designed to serve as complements to existing methods for systems development. LÄS MER
5. Deficient bodies and divine interventions : women, midwives, and the medicalisation of childbirth - a gender perspective

While interventions at times are vital for a safe birth, there is a growing body of evidence demonstrating that an overuse of medical and technological interventions may have adverse effects on woman and child.
