Abstract [en]

Conference Theme: Social and service innovation in working life.Introduction: People with disabilities express positive effects and experiences of a new rehabilitation method, individually tailored martial arts for health and ability. This method has been developed through the common competence and creativity of physioterapists, a physical education teacher and the role model, a person with unique experience of personal disability and practice of Martial arts. The method acknowledges disabled people’s need for effective rehabilitation methods, and is suitable in a social context. The exercise is performed on equal terms despite the participants’ different prerequisites. Purpose: The project aimed to study the effects of this new rehabilitation method for social interaction through movement. Methods: Data from observations and interviews with participants were analysed using theoretical models of movement and social cognitive models including the theory of self-efficacy. Results and conclusion: Preliminary data indicate increased postural control, balance and performance of daily activities. The participants’ quality of movement and self-efficacy beliefs in a social context will be discussed, as well as the method as a social innovation.
