English abstract
Background: Today, people tend to be less physically active than before, much because of the society we live in with cars and technology. Research shows a reduction in physical activity, even more with people who have some form of visual impairment. People visual impairment can experience limitations in everyday life such as not being able to get around or fear. Purpose: The purpose of the study is to identify motivational factors and perceived barriers in persons with visual impairment of physical activity habits. Method: The study is of a qualitative nature where 6 interviews have been made on persons with visual impairment. Result: The results of this study have been analyzed with help of the social cognitive theory; it's a theory where three themes are in focus, environment, behavior and personal factors. The result of the study has shown that the persons with visual impairment are physically active in some form, but all are not sufficiently active to reach the WHO’s recommendations. At the same time, the biggest motivation factors are from internal character, but some have external as a major motivation factor. However, it turned out that the primary goal for everyone was health, which is an internal motivational factor. As far as perceived obstacles are concerned, environment was the largest category of barrier, but also personal factors and behavior influenced in the results section. Conclusion: In summary, it can be said that there are many influencing factors about why a person with visual impairment is more or less active and what perceived obstacles exist. It could be due to geographical place of residence or what one has for psychological thinking. However, one cannot take away from the fact that the environment can often be adapted to make physical activity more accessible to everyone.
