Wheelchair sport provides a valuable and meaningful exercise and rehabilitation setting for veterans with physical disabilities. Power wheelchair soccer is an increasingly popular wheelchair sport, and it provides a meaningful exercise opportunity for veterans who rely on power wheelchairs. Persons with amputations, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, and traumatic brain injury can all participate in this sport. The current study describes factors that either influence or discourage exercise participation among participants. Program directors can use this information to encourage exercise behavior among veterans with severe disabling conditions who need therapeutic exercise.
