Denna avhandling baserar sig på de erfarenheter av Internet som



ett antal människor med betydande kroppsliga funktionsnedsättningar



gjort. Personerna i studierna är erfarna och duktiga



dator- och Internetanvändare och har få eller inga funktionshinder



i dator och online världen, men däremot stora funktionshinder i



den fysiska världen. Deras functioning, förmåga att fungera, på



Internet analyseras i denna avhandling med hjälp av faktorerna



attitude (attityd), control (kontroll) och enabling (möjliggörande)



för att utröna vad som är möjligt när alla nybörjarproblem och alla



dåligt anpassade gränssnitt redan är avklarade. Om den virtuella



världen är fullt tillgänglig men den fysiska inte är det ? vilka blir då



effekterna på självbild, lärande, lärande gemenskaper, känsla för



sammanhang, makt och kontroll? Vilka är effekterna av peer-topeer



lärande och samarbete? Independent living, dess begrepp och



teorier, går som en röd tråd genom avhandlingen. Mest uppenbart



är detta kanske genom valet av studier och perspektiv. Den



teoretiska bakgrunden och de begrepp som används kommer från



disability studies utifrån ett social model och indepdendent living



perspektiv samt från rehabiliteringsteknik och design. Just



möjligheterna till samspel och ömsesidig utveckling mellan



rehabiliteringsteknik och design å ena sidan och å den andra



disability studies är ett centralt tema. Olika aspekter på design och



teknik för funktion behandlas med hjälp av FACE-verktyget



(Functioning- Attitude, Control, Enabling) ur ett utökat



funktionsperspektiv, både individuellt och socialt. (Less)
Abstract
This thesis is based on the Internet experiences of people with



significant mobility/physical impairments who are proficient and



experienced computer users in their computer world but have



limitations in mobility that severely restrict their functioning in



the physical world. The Internet functioning of this group is



analysed by means of the factors attitude, control and enabling,



with the main focus on what is achievable when all access



problems such as unadapted interfaces, beginners? difficulties and



the digital divide are overcome. If the virtual world is fully

This thesis is based on the Internet experiences of people with



significant mobility/physical impairments who are proficient and



experienced computer users in their computer world but have



limitations in mobility that severely restrict their functioning in



the physical world. The Internet functioning of this group is



analysed by means of the factors attitude, control and enabling,



with the main focus on what is achievable when all access



problems such as unadapted interfaces, beginners? difficulties and



the digital divide are overcome. If the virtual world is fully



available but the real world is not ? what are the effects on



learning, self image, communities of practice, sense of coherence,



power and control? What are the effects on peer-to-peer learning



and co-operation? Independent living concepts and theories



manifest themselves throughout the thesis, most obviously,



perhaps, in the selection of issues that are studied and in the



perspectives.



The theoretical background and concepts are those of disability



studies, with a social model and independent living perspective,



and with strong influences from rehabilitation engineering and



design.



Throughout the thesis elaborations and clarifications of the



possibilities of interplay and co-existence between rehabilitation



engineering and design and disability studies are made. Different



aspects of function design and technology are examined from an



expanded view on functioning, where technology is put in an



individual and social context with the FACE (Function ? Attitude,



Control, Enabling) tool. (Less)
