This paper evaluates power transfer or shifting across upper-limb segments, resulting from fatigue-inducing wheelchair propulsion. Nineteen manual wheelchair users (WCUs) and ten nonwheelchair users (NUs) participated in this study. Subjects propelled an instrumented wheelchair ergometer at a workload corresponding to 75% of the peak oxygen uptake attained during a maximal-graded exercise tolerance test. Subjects were required to propel the wheelchair for as long as they could at a constant… CONTINUE READING
