PURPOSE The WheelSense project aims to develop a system for assessing the stability and performance of wheelchairs through a user-centred design process. This study sought to capture user needs and define the specification for the system. METHOD A mixed methods approach was adopted. An online survey was completed by 98 participants working in wheelchair(More)
This paper investigates possible relationships between heat stress of steelworkers and cause-specific mortality patterns. Prior to field investigation, jobs were identified which appeared to involve heat stress exposure. A selected sample of these jobs was surveyed for assessing the workers' environmental and metabolic heat load. These data were utilized to(More)

Wheelchair stability has an impact on safety as well as wheelchair performance, propulsion and manoeuvrability. Wheelchair stability is affected by the addition of life-supporting heavy equipment, e.g. ventilators and oxygen cylinders, as well as the characteristics of the user e.g. limb amputations, obesity. The aim of the research described here was to(More)
Wheelchairs should provide safe and reliable functioning in various road conditions and situations, ease of propulsion, and high maneuverability. Often, wheelchairs need further modification and installation of additional equipment (ventilators, oxygen cylinders, etc) which affect their stability. Wheelchair stability is also dependent on a user's body(More)
