    Abstract : Background: In Sweden today a major proportion of the population survive to old ages. To a large extent, the oldest old are capable of living longer in their own households; some of them are very healthy while others have multiple diagnoses or ailments caused by a normal ageing process.

  2. 2. Functional product development : an explorative view

    Author : Åsa Ericson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Funktionella produkter; Functional Product Development; Computer Aided Design; Datorstödd maskinkonstruktion;

    Abstract : Embodied in the concept of functional products is a shift in view for manufacturing companies as providers of physical artefacts to service providers. Furthermore, differentiation by offering added value, increased commitment towards customers, life-cycle commitment for the physical artefact and close collaboration between manufacturing companies are characteristics of the concept of functional products.

  3. 3. Functional Metallic Glasses

    Author : Ansar Masood; Lyubov Belova; K. Venkat Rao; Lars Arnberg; KTH; []
    Keywords : Bulk Metallic glasses; glass forming ability; soft magnetism; thin films; magnetic properties; magnetic hardening; plasticity; biocompatibility;

    Abstract : For decades, Metallic Glass, with its isotropic featureless structure while exhibiting outstanding mechanical properties was possible only at a high rate of quenching and with at least one dimension in the submicron regime.  This limitation was overcome with the discovery of Bulk Metallic glasses, BMGs, containing three or more elements following the additional two empirical rules of optimum geometric size differences and negative energy of mixing among the constituent elements.

  4. 4. Functional Copolymers of Polyvinylpyrrolidone

    Author : Jonas Engström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : suspension polymerization; functional monomers; 1-vinylpyrrolidin-2-one; copolymerization; swelling; crosslinking; solid-phase synthesis; drug delivery vehicles.; phase-selective solubility; beads; Polyvinylpyrrolidone;

    Abstract : In many ways, polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) has a unique combination of chemical and physical properties. Unlike most polymers it is soluble in water as well as a number of organic solvents. PVP also has excellent film forming properties, outstanding chemical stability, complexing ability, low toxicity, and good adherence to many different substrates. READ MORE

  5. 5. Overall Accessibility of Public Transport for Older Adults

    Author : Catherine Sundling; Mats E. Nilsson; Birgitta Berglund; Leslie R. Pendrill; Ragne Emardson; Bo Edvardsson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; older persons; critical incidents; critical reactions; travel behavior; accessibility; functional limitation; functional ability; barrier; facilitator; public transport; railway travel; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : This thesis is based on four studies that explore accessibility for older adults during whole trips by public transport. The overall goal was to gain knowledge of the interrelationships among key variables and to develop a conceptual model of the overall accessibility of public transport. READ MORE
