Modeling manual wheelchair propulsion cost during straight and curvilinear trajectories dataset
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-05-11)
Minimizing the effort to propel a manual wheelchair is important to all users in order to optimize the efficiency of maneuvering throughout the day. Assessing the propulsion cost of wheelchairs as a mechanical system is ...
Video Demonstrations of Component- and Systems-Level Test Methods for Wheelchair Propulsion Characterization
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-11)
The five videos included in this repository demonstrate the fundamental test methods used to characterize performance of various wheelchair components. The Anatomical Model Propulsion System (AMPS) was designed to emulate ...
Dataset for "Effect of wheels, casters and forks on vibration attenuation and propulsion cost of manual wheelchairs"
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-08-10)
Manual wheelchair users are exposed to whole-body vibrations as a direct result of using their wheelchair. Wheels, tires, and caster forks have been developed to reduce or attenuate the vibration that transmits through the ...
Dataset for "Propulsion cost changes of ultra-lightweight manual wheelchairs after one year of simulated use"
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022)
Manual wheelchairs are available with folding or rigid frames to meet the preferences and needs of individual users. Folding styles are commonly regarded as more portable and storable, whereas rigid frames are commonly ...
