Interactive Design - The desire for autonomous upright mobility: A longitudinal case study
Halmstad University, School of Health and Welfare, Centre of Research on Welfare, Health and Sport (CVHI).
2007 (English)In: Technology and Disability, ISSN 1055-4181, E-ISSN 1878-643X, Vol. 19, no 4, p. 213-224Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

When a child is born with a motor disability, making it difficult or impossible to acquire independent locomotion, a challenging task is to find assistive compensating technology. This study addresses the motor needs of a child, Hanna, with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA II). She participated in the development of her assistive technology, with a focus on her independent locomotion and posture, during her infancy, childhood and early teens in a longitudinal and interactive design project. From the very beginning, she expressed a strong attraction to autonomous upright mobility, in contrast to the more common sitting posture in a wheelchair. She has used different versions of the resulting powered walking aid ever since. The upright independent locomotion it has afforded has been of major importance for her self-image, independence and physical development. © 2007 IOS Press. All rights reserved.
