When the physiotherapist goes digital: Physical rehabilitation and new infrastructures of care

 In the project When the physiotherapist goes digital: Physical rehabilitation and new infrastructures of care, Nete Scwennesen studies a sensor based technology, for remote monitored physical rehabilitation. She explores 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 is funded by Center for Health Ageing/The Nordea Foundation.
