In order to investigate the influence of the level of the spinal cord injury (SCI) on anaerobic or short-term power production and propulsion technique, 23 male SCI subjects performed a 30-second sprint test on a stationary wheelchair ergometer. Kinematic parameters were studied both inter- and intra-individually. Subjects with a cervical lesion showed a lower mean power output (21.5 Watt, one-sided) than the other subjects; whereas, no differences were found between subjects with a thoracic or… CONTINUE READING
