Evaluations of two instruments targeting the ability to use everyday technology

This project aims to systematically evaluate and improve the psychometric properties of the instruments Everyday Technology Use Questionnaire (ETUQ) and Management of Everyday Technology Assessment (META), for people with different diagnoses, e.g. MCI or AD, in order to ready them for use in designing, conducting, and evaluating intervention outcomes.

In the Danish sub-studies, the focus is on people with COPD, see the PhD-thesis KI 2020 by Rina Juel Kaptain.

One project has its focus on technologies used in eHealth activities, see the PhD thesis KI 2021 by Elin Jakobsson. In another project we have developed the ETUQ into an application for smartphone and tablets in collaboration with Denmark (Tina Helle and SnappApp). This application is evaluated by Elin Jakobsson (see the link above).


Leaders: Camilla Malinowsky together with Louise Nygård and Anders Kottorp (Malmö University).

KI: Lena Rosenberg, Elin Jacobsson, and Tina Helle (VIA University College Århus, Danmark), Maria Larsson Lund (LTU), Stefan Lundberg (KTH), students from e.g. European Master in Occupational Science.
