Propulsion patterns and pushrim biomechanics in manual wheelchair propulsion.
We classify propulsive stroke patterns of manual wheelchair users and determine if different patterns of propulsion lead to different biomechanics. Expand

Shoulder joint kinetics and pathology in manual wheelchair users.
BACKGROUND Manual wheelchair users rely heavily on their upper limbs for independent mobility which likely leads to a high prevalence of shoulder pain and injury. The goal of this study was toExpand

Pushrim biomechanics and injury prevention in spinal cord injury: recommendations based on CULP-SCI investigations.
Over 50 percent of manual wheelchair users with spinal cord injury (SCI) are likely to develop upper-limb pain and injury. The majority of studies related to pain have implicated wheelchairExpand
