When the physiotherapist goes digital

In the project When the physiotherapist goes digital: Physical rehabilitation and new infrastructures of care, Nete Scwennesen studied a sensor based technology, for remote monitored physical rehabilitation. She explored the kind of relationships health care professionals and patients establish with and through this technology and how authority and affect is produced and negotiated in those encounters. The project was funded by Center for Health Ageing/The Nordea Foundation.
