  1. 1. Measuring quality of occupational performance based on self-report and observation : development and validation of instruments to evaluate ADL task performance

    Författare :Eva Ejlersen Waehrens; Anne G Fisher; Hans Lund; Bente Danneskiold-Samsöe; Lena von Koch; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; activities of daily living; acquired brain injury; ADL evaluation; ADL task performance; chronic disease; chronic widespread pain; interview; observation; occupational therapy; observation-based evaluation; questionnaire; Rasch measurement; rheumatic diseases; Occupational therapy; Arbetsterapi; Occupational therapy; arbetsterapi;

    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.

  2. 2. Deep Learning for Geo-referenced Data : Case Study: Earth Observation

    Författare :Nosheen Abid; Marcus Liwicki; Muhammad Zeshan Afzal; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Artificial Intelligence; Machine Learning; Earth Observation; Computer Vision; Machine Learning; Maskininlärning;

    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

  3. 3. User Consideration in Early Stages of Product Development : Theories and Methods

    Författare :Jenny Janhager; Margareta Norell Bergendahl; MariAnne Karlsson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Engineering design; Man-machine interaction; product development method; scenario technique; technical process; user; Konstruktionsteknik; Construction engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    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

  4. 4. Adding usability : Methods for modelling, user interface design and evaluation

    Författare :Magnus Lif; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Modelling; analysis; design; evaluation; user interface; human computer interaction; system development; usability; utility; methods; workspace; iterative; designer; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; datavetenskap med inriktning människa-datorinteraktion; Computer Science; human-computer interaction;

    Sammanfattning : Many system development projects fail to provide information systems with high usability. 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. 5. Deficient bodies and divine interventions : women, midwives, and the medicalisation of childbirth - a gender perspective

    Författare :Agneta Westergren; Monica Christianson; Kerstin Edin; Ingela Lundgren; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Birth experiences; birth plan; birth setting; childbirth; cross-sectional study; femininity; feminism; focused ethnography; gender perspective; intrapartum interventions; medicalisation; midwifery; qualitative methods; women; Barnmorska; feminism; förlossning; förlossningsplan; förlossningsupplevelse; förlossningsvård; genuskonstruktion; genusperspektiv; intervention; kvalitativ metod; kvinna; medikalisering; observation; tvärsnittsstudie;

    Sammanfattning : Background In Sweden, one of the safest countries to give birth and to be born in, there is a trend towards increasing interventions during childbirth, and fewer women than ever give birth without having their labours induced or augmented, epidural analgesia, or caesarean section. 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.
