Participation in adapted sports has contributed significantly to the quality of life of veterans with disabilities. This study measured the mobility patterns of power wheelchair soccer players during the National Veterans Wheelchair Games. A custom- designed data-logging device was used to capture the average distance, speed, and amount of time the power soccer players used their wheelchairs during a game. The information from this descriptive study provides insight for future research in the field of adapted sports for people with high-level impairments using power wheelchairs for their mobility.
