Handbook of Healthcare Research.

The book titled ‘Handbook of Healthcare Research,’ edited by T. Plochg, R.E. Juttmann, N.S. Klazinga, and J.P. Mackenbach, with 380 pages, figures, and tables, was published by Bohn Stafleu van Loghum, Houten in 2007.

The philosopher Hannah Arendt drew attention to dualities such as power and violence, goals and means, politics and science. Murphy’s law forces us to confront the age-old duality of goals and means. The goal is good healthcare. Achieving well-functioning medical care requires evidence-based medicine and evidence-based policies, but these are always the means to the evident goal.

A randomized controlled trial comparing app-based multidisciplinary treatment for back pain to a combination of physiotherapy and online education.

Non-specific low back pain (LBP) is a major contributor to global disability. Multidisciplinary pain treatment (MPT) programs, which include educational, physical, and psychological interventions, have demonstrated positive effects on the treatment of LBP. However, such programs can be expensive, and treatment options are often limited to specialized medical centers. Digital interventions such as mHealth may offer a promising approach to support successful self-management of LBP by patients.

Development of a Telerehabilitation System to Select, Evaluate, and Remotely Manage Therapies.

Telerehabilitation systems that enable physical therapy sessions from any location have the potential to reduce healthcare costs and enhance the quality of life for individuals in need of rehabilitation. The primary objective of this paper is to present a comprehensive overview of the innovative Kinect-based Telerehabilitation System (KiReS), which offers additional features beyond those currently available in traditional systems. By introducing two new functionalities, KiReS represents a significant advancement towards a new generation of telerehabilitation systems.

Integrating Cooperative Users to Develop a Framework for an Effective Mobile Physiotherapy Solution.

Mobile health applications (apps), in recent times, have garnered significant attention from both the manufacturing and research communities. The rapid evolution of smartphones, aided by advanced communication technology, presents challenges in terms of app reliability and accuracy. Understanding these challenges could assist industries and designers in developing better tools to support patients or users in achieving effective apps. The objective of this study is to identify the critical features, contents, and essential user groups for a robust mobile physiotherapy framework.

A Review of the Current State of Mobile Health in 2015.

Health telematics is an increasingly important issue that is significantly improving the lives of patients, particularly the elderly, disabled, and chronically ill. Recent advancements in information and communication technologies, coupled with mobile internet connectivity that enables anywhere and anytime access, are playing a pivotal role in modern healthcare solutions. In this context, mobile health (m-Health) is delivering healthcare services that overcome geographical, temporal, and organizational barriers. M-Health solutions are addressing emerging issues in healthcare services, including the rising prevalence of lifestyle-related chronic diseases, the high costs of existing national health services, the need to empower patients and families to manage their healthcare, and the necessity to provide direct access to health services, regardless of time and location.

The Views of Physiotherapists and Physiotherapy Students on Incorporating Mobile or Wearable Technology into their Practice.

Despite a considerable amount of research on the factors influencing the adoption of mobile or wearable health care technology (mHealth) and its acceptance among patients and other health care professionals, there has been limited investigation into the viewpoints of physiotherapists regarding the use of mHealth in their present or future practice. This study aimed to examine physiotherapists’ attitudes towards mHealth by utilizing a modified technology acceptance model questionnaire.

The drastic shift towards eHealth is being accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis.

No matter how necessary the measures regarding COVID-19 are, many professions are severely impacted by them. Take for instance physiotherapists, whose work mainly involves physical contact. With the often-empty schedules that result from this, they are forced to be creative; healthcare providers have never had to change so rapidly to get their expertise to the patient. Therefore, the current crisis, unpleasant as it may be, offers an opportunity to evaluate our healthcare and permanently integrate technology into our healthcare offerings.

Global mobile consumer survey 2019 (The Netherlands)

Greetings to the Dutch version of Deloitte’s 2019 Global Mobile Consumer Survey, an annual investigation into global trends in mobile consumers. This “Dutch Cut” provides information on device ownership, connectivity, operator stores, mobile payments, smartphone usage, mobile gaming, and privacy.

Mediated Interaction: Analyzing Communicative Affordances and Participation Frameworks.

In this piece, I offer a discussion on the topic of the Special Issue, which originated from a panel organized by the editors during the 2011 International Pragmatics Association conference in Manchester, England, where I was invited to serve as a discussant. Instead of reviewing the content of each article, my goal is to provide some context to emphasize the arguments and discoveries of the contributions as a whole. Hence, I will comment on the theme linking the examination of language usage and the involvement of members in technologically mediated communication environments.
