The Design of a Family of Parametric Anatomically-Based Compliant Buttock Models to Evaluate Wheelchair Cushion Performance - Fabrication Package
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-07)
The evaluation of wheelchair cushion performance is of interest to a variety of stakeholders. Over the years, several buttocks models have been used to evaluate wheelchair cushion performance. These vary in design and ...
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: Procedure to categorize wheelchair cushion performance using compliant buttock models
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-09)
Wheelchair cushion prescription often seeks to address tissue integrity in addition to other clinical indicators. Because hundreds of wheelchair cushion models are available, a benefit would result if cushions were classified ...
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 ...
Wheelchair in-seat monitoring design considerations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2022-10)
Wheelchair in-seat activity trackers are developed to monitor and provide feedback about the pressure redistributing movements of wheelchair users, including weight shifts and other postural shifts that redistribute buttocks ...
