This technical note illustrates that some of the differences that have been reported regarding wheelchair propulsion may be due to the methods used to calculate key variables. Wheelchair ambulation is a very important form of locomotion that lacks a standard pushrim force and moment analysis system. We have developed tools for analyzing upper limb biomechanics during manual wheelchair propulsion. Among the tools is a system that allows the direct measurement of global coordinate forces F(x), F… CONTINUE READING
