    Today, about 60 per cent of all the labour force works in offices, which is an environment often characterised by low physical activity. Many employers encourage their employees to exercise by subsidising active healthcare activities, but it is a benefit often used by those who already enjoy an active lifestyle in their spare time, as a way of getting a discount on their gym membership. Researchers at MDH are investigating how instead to use the workplace itself as an arena for encouraging good health.

    Elderly men are over-represented in suicide statistics, but despite this they seldom seek help for mental ill-health. Researchers at MDH, together with Karolinska Institutet, have made a study on mental ill-health in elderly men and have concluded that nurses in primary care play a key role in identifying mental ill-health among elderly men. To prevent suicide requires close cooperation among professionals and with the patients’ relatives.

    In 2025 about 250,000 tonnes of batteries from trains, cars and other electric vehicles will have reached the end of their lives. Today only a fifth of the battery’s full capacity is used, which has great impact on our environment since the batteries are not fully used. At MDH our researchers are investigating how the remaining capacity could be used by companies to prolong the life of the battery and thus reduce the environmental impact.
