Research description

The PhD project is part of a bigger collaboration project seeking to explore, and hopefully understand, the life situation of individuals with a mobility disability. By conducting register-based studies, the project wants to investigate potential risk factors that affect both their social and working life. Furthermore, the project aims to investigate their role on the Swedish labor market, the risk of earlier retirement, and obtaining disability pension. The results are expected to generate new knowledge that can be of use for professionals working with primary prevention and in healthcare, and hopefully improving the participation in society for people with mobility disability.
