Objectives The purpose of this study was to investigate technique differences between expert and novice manual wheelchair users during over-ground wheelchair propulsion. Method Seven experts (spinal cord injury level between T5 and L1) and six novices (non-wheelchair users) pushed a manual wheelchair over level ground, a 2.5% cross slope and up a 6.5% incline (7.2 m length) and 12% incline (1.5 m length). Push rim kinetics, trunk and shoulder kinematics and muscle activity level were measured… CONTINUE READING
