OBJECTIVES To describe a standard clinical protocol for the objective assessment of manual wheelchair propulsion; to establish preliminary values for temporal and kinetic parameters derived from the protocol; and to develop graphical references and a proposed application process for use by clinicians. DESIGN Case series. SETTING Six research institutions that collect kinetic wheelchair propulsion data and contribute that data to an international data pool. PARTICIPANTS Subjects with… CONTINUE READING
