Evaluation of custom energy expenditure models for SenseWear armband in manual wheelchair users

KaLai Tsang, et al.

Manual wheelchair users tend to be physically inactive because of their mobility limitations. This sedentary lifestyle will increase their risk of developing secondary health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, cancers, and heart diseases. Without proper assessment tools, wheelchair users will not know how much physical activity they need to do to stay healthy and clinicians will not be able to prescribe proper physical activity treatments to benefit their patients. This study evaluated recently developed custom energy expenditure models that will allow manual wheelchair users to accurately track their daily physical activity and develop a heathier lifestyle.
