    Manual wheelchair propulsion results in physical demand of the upper limb extremities that, because of its repetitive nature, can lead to chronic pathologies on spinal cord injury patients. The aim of this study was to design and test a methodology to compare kinematic and kinetic variables of the upper limb joints when propelling different wheelchairs. Moreover, this methodology was used to. The athletes had higher kinematic variables than sedentary MWU in the test-CIDIF. The greater the loss of function caused by the shoulder pain, the lower the speed at which a MWU is able to propel in the designed test. The maximum wheelchair propulsion test designed and developed by the Research.

    The aim of the study was to examine and compare the propulsion techniques of senior male, senior female, and junior male athletes and to determine the relationship between the kinematic variables and performance. A two-dimensional video analysis was performed on the m finals (n = 23) at the British Wheelchair National Track. purpose of this study to quantify the kinematic characteristics of the trunk and upper arms during racing wheelchair stroking over a roller system using the PBT and CVT at two different resistance loads. METHODS: The CVT group consisted of eight males (33+5 yrs, injury level ranged from T5 to LA).

    A methodological protocol has been developed that allows the analysis of kinematic characteristics of wheelchair propulsion in basketball players taking into account their functional classification. * The authors are with the Biomechanics and Technical Aids Department, Hospital Nacional de . data collection and analysis allow for the comparison of differences in wheelchair propulsion between able-bodied individuals and participants with paraplegia. In this section, muscle activity with respect to kinetics, kinematics, and wheelchair propulsion characteristics are discussed and evaluated with other findings in the literature.

Corpus ID: Kinematic Variability of Wheelchair Propulsion: The Effects of Speed and Exercise @inproceedings{LongworthKinematicVO, title={Kinematic Variability of Wheelchair Propulsion: The Effects of Speed and Exercise}, author={Jessica Anne Longworth}, year={} }. Curiously, little of this work has been done with persons who use wheelchairs on a daily basis.

The other investigations have employed able bodied individuals e.g. Glaser et al. Obviously, in the latter case the application of findings would have only limited relevance to the paraplegic or other spinally injured by: Julien et al.

the biomechanics of wheelchair propulsion using elec-tromyographic, kinematic and dynamic techniques. Biomechanics and kinematics of wheelchair propulsion Wheelchair propulsion is a repetitive task which is pri-marily controlled by the upper extremity and leads to biomechanical alterations that play a key role in trig-gering muscle imbalance.

Wheelchair propulsion has been reported to be responsible for musculoskeletal pain in the upper extremities. Epidemiological studies have shown a high prevalence of shoulder complaints in paraplegic and quadriplegic spinal cord injured (SCI) people.

Abstract — We used an instrumented wheelchair ergometer and 3D motion analysis system to collect joint kinematic and temporal data, as well as hand rim and joint kinetics, in 47 manual wheelchair users (MWCUs) (15 with upper-limb impairment and 32 without upper-limb impairment).The group with upper-limb impairment propelled with a higher stroke frequency and reduced hand-rim contact time.

Lever‐propelled wheelchair propulsion: Limits and advantages Lever‐based wheelchair propulsion has been proposed worldwide since several years. The techniques adopted for the instrumental evaluation of the wheelchair propulsion involve the use of electromyography, stereophotogrammetric and sensoristic systems and Smart Wheel to analyze the dynamics of the motion6,15– In addition, specific 3-D models investigate wheelchair propulsion and biomechanical parameters that vary during.
