DOCTORALTHESIS, CERTEC 1:2008
The overall aim of this thesis is to elaborate on the art of living with a traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) in its relation to resources and norms in Swedish society. The thesis originates in part from a prevalence group of SCI individuals and is based on four studies. One is longitudinal and register based, and one is interview based. A paper on “ethics in the making” elaborates how general versus situated ethics might influence design. A norm perspective is applied in another study highlighting the double sets of social norms via narratives in the context of a severe disability. Through these approaches, I hope to open up an area in which little or no research has previously been carried out.
