I work with research in physiotherapy with a focus on health promotion and/or rehabilitation within different contexts for example primary health care, working life and school, sometimes with the use of information and communication technology tools. My research concern people in working life as well as persons with musculoskeletal disorders or stroke. The aim is to improve health and well-being as well as work ability and physical capacities. Interventions can be performed on individual, group and/or organizational levels and concern behavior change, mental health promotion, promotion of  physical activity or stress management.
