- Master theses 
This thesis is an autoethnographic study about how a person with a movement-impairing disability deal with everyday events. Having a movement-impairing disability means more challenges, especially when travelling, which requires more planning. The researcher and participant in this thesis have cerebral palsy, which affects their fine motor skills to some degree, and causes lower mobility which in turn causes them to spend more energy than others on any activity, such as for example walking. Two field trials have been conducted where some common events take place, such as meeting a friend for a coffee and walking to the boat to travel back home to visit family. During the field trials, voice-recorded notes were made and were later discussed. The thesis also includes suggestions to improve the app Skyss Reise, which could later be evaluated by other means to see if the suggested improvements would benefit other users.
