Disabled person's experience of dependence on assistive devices
2002 (engelsk)Inngår i: Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, ISSN 1103-8128, E-ISSN 1651-2014, Vol. 9, nr 4, s. 176-183Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to elucidate disabled persons' experience of dependence on assistive devices. Fifteen persons were interviewed with a narrative approach. A qualitative thematic content analysis was used to analyse the interview text. The analysis resulted in four themes with nine sub-themes. The study shows that the participants' experience of being dependent on assistive devices included possibilities such as gaining a better quality of life and being able to live a normal life. The dependence also led to obstacles like a fear of injuring oneself when utilizing assistive devices, difficulties in accepting them and worry about future needs for devices. The participants experienced a changed reception from other people and problems imposed by society or the community. They felt that they were treated in a different way and were in the way. A lack of access to public places and a feeling of helplessness when faced with the power of the authorities were other experiences of the participants. The relationship between the approach that people take to their illness and the acceptance of using assistive technology needs further study. Further research concerning the way in which people handle their dependence on assistive devices needs to be conducted.
