Rehabilitation scientists and biomedical engineers have been investigating wheelchair propulsion biomechanics in order to prevent musculoskeletal injuries. Several studies have investigated wheelchair propulsion biomechanics; however, few have examined wheelchair propulsion stroke patterns. The purpose of this study was to characterize wheelchair propulsion stroke patterns by investigating joint accelerations, joint range of motions, wheelchair propulsion phases, and stroke efficiency.
