Influence of noncircular chainring on male physiological parameters in hand cycling

Sebastian Zeller, MSc Sport Science, et al.

Hand cycling is a sport for individuals with lower-limb disabilities. A road-racing hand cycle is designed as a three-wheeled vehicle with the front wheel being chain-driven using the upper limbs. In the context of racing and daily living, hand cycling has been shown to be more efficient than handrim wheelchair propulsion. The purpose of our study was to examine the influence of a noncircular chainring (NCC) compared with a conventional circular chainring on hand cycling performance. Focusing on physiological parameters, a performance optimization using an NCC in hand cycling could not be proven.
