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 Over-Ground AMPS Trials with Intermittent Torque-Controlled Propulsion
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-10-12)
This repository contains videos of the Anatomical Model Propulsion System (AMPS) performing straight and curvilinear maneuvers to characterize the performance of various manual wheelchair configurations. The AMPS was ...
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 ...
