OBJECTIVE Shocks and vibrations experienced while using a hand-rim wheelchair can contribute to discomfort, fatigue and injury. The aim of this study was to compare the seat forces and head accelerations experienced by manual wheelchair users during independent curb descent landings in a standard and 3 suspension-type rigid-frame wheelchairs.

<i>Skyfarer</i> is a mixed reality shoulder exercise game developed for prevention and treatment of shoulder pain for individuals aging with spinal cord injury. We are adapting a shoulder exercise protocol that has been evaluated in a randomized clinical trial [Mulroy et al. 2011]. This demonstration will showcase a second-generation integrated exercise(More)
Car transfers and wheelchair (WC) loading are crucial for independent community participation in persons with complete paraplegia from spinal cord injury, but are complex, physically demanding, and known to provoke shoulder pain. This study aimed to describe techniques and factors influencing car transfer and WC loading for individuals with paraplegia(More)
This study demonstrated the feasibility of a device for monitoring pressure relief maneuvers and physical activity for wheelchair users. The device counts the number of wheel pushes based on wheelchair acceleration and measures pressure relief maneuvers using a seat sensor consisting of three force sensing resistors (FSRs). To establish the feasibility of(More)
