Development of intelligent model for personalized guidance on wheelchair tilt and recline usage for people with spinal cord injury: Methodology and preliminary report

Jicheng Fu, PhD, et al.

Veterans with spinal cord injury (SCI) are at great risk for pressure ulcers because of their prolonged stays in wheelchairs. Wheelchair tilt and recline functions are two of the most desirable features for relieving seating pressure to reduce risk of pressure ulcers. In this study, we demonstrated the feasibility of using machine learning techniques to construct an intelligent model to provide personalized guidance on wheelchair tilt and recline usage for people with SCI. Our intelligent model considers individuals’ demographic, neurological, and SCI injury attributes. Veterans with SCI may benefit from this intelligent model for selecting suitable tilt and recline settings.
