Manual wheelchair (MWC) users face a variety of obstacles limiting their participation. Different MWC models and new add-on components intended to improve propulsion may impact users' function and participation, although there is a lack of research on this topic.
A Web-Based Physical Activity Portal for Individuals Living With a Spinal Cord Injury: Qualitative Study
The population with a spinal cord injury (SCI) largely remains inactive following discharge from rehabilitation despite evidence on the benefits of physical activity. A Web-based physical activity portal can address this need.
Feasibility, safety and effectiveness of a home-based self-managed high-intensity interval training program offered to long-term manual wheelchair users.
Home-based wheelchair HIIT appears feasible and safe although potential development of shoulder pain remains a concern and should be addressed with a future preventive shoulder exercise program.
Unmatched perception of speeds between overground and treadmill manual wheelchair propulsion in long-term manual wheelchair users.
Manual wheelchair (MWC) propulsion is increasingly assessed on a motorized treadmill (TM), which is often considered more ecologically valid than stationary rollers.
In 2015, ISOQOL President, Claire Snyder, PhD, and the ISOQOL Board introduced two key themes for ISOQOL to focus on over the coming years: Measuring What Matters (e.g., what outcomes should we measure) and Making Measurement Meaningful (e.g., what do the scores mean).
