Smartphone in rehabilitation for people with acquired brain injury : A literature review (English)
Abstract [sv]

Syfte:Syftet med litteraturstudien var att undersöka hur en smartphone kan användas inom rehabilitering efter FHS, i vilken utsträckning smartphonen används. Vilka effekter smartphonen kan ge på i det dagliga livet samt betydelsen en smartphone kan utgöra.

Metod:För att besvara syftet så utfördes en litteraturstudie som innefattar kvalitativ och kvantitativ forskning baserad på åtta studier. 

Resultat:Smartphonen har många fördelar som ett kompensatoriskt hjälpmedel samt är betydelsefull för personerna i det dagliga livet på många sätt. Signifikanta effekter kunde uppmätas som ledde till att fler aktiviteter både påbörjas och avslutades i rätt tid, därmed så hanteras många av grundproblemen med förvärvad hjärnskada (FHS), såsom svårigheter med minne, planering, initiering och organisering. Smartphonen föredrogs också av användarna framför andra hjälpmedel. 

Slutsats:Studien visar att de finns stora fördelar med att implementera smartphonen som en del av rehabiliteringen av förvärvad hjärnskada. Vidare visar studien att smartphonen är den del av människors liv oavsett med eller utan FHS.  Det finns behov av vidare forskning inom ämnet då det finns få studier som belyser smartphonens som kompensatoriskt hjälpmedel i dagsläget.

Abstract [en]

Aim: The aim of this literature study was to describe how the smartphone is used as a compensatory aid in rehabilitation and the importance it can have for people with acquired brain injury.

Method: To answer the purpose, a literature study was carried out which included qualitative and quantitative research based on eight studies.

Result: The smartphone has many advantages as a compensatory aid and it shows important for people with acquired brain injury in their daily life in many ways. Significant effects could be measured which led to more activities being initiated and completed at the right time, thus many of the basic problems with acquired brain injury are addressed, such as problems with memory, planning, initiation and organization. The smartphone was also preferred by the users in front of other devices.

Conclusion: The study shows great advantages in implementing the smartphone as part of the rehabilitation of acquired brain injury. Furthermore, the study shows that the smartphone is the part of people's lives regardless of if they suffer from acquired brain damage or not. There is a need for further research within the subject since there are few studies that shed light on smartphone's as compensatory aid at present.
