Upper-limb joint kinetics expression during wheelchair propulsion

Melissa M. B. Morrow, BS, et al.

The majority of people who use manual wheelchairs will experience some form of joint pain or injury of the upper limb during their lifetime. Researchers have spent almost 15 years studying the loads on the upper limb during wheelchair activities to improve the lives of manual wheelchair users. Directly comparing results between groups in the wheelchair literature has been difficult because data are represented differently. This article explores the data representation of the past and suggests a standard with which to better serve the manual wheelchair population.
