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 thesis of Rina Juel Kaptain).

One project has its focus on technologies used in eHealth activities (Elin Jakobsson). In another project we have developed the ETUQ as an application for smartphone and tablets in collaboration with Denmark (Tina Helle and SnappApp). This application is evaluated by Elin Jakobsson.
