In-seat activity of wheelchair users measured over multiple epochs dataset
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019-01-18)
Pressure ulcers, by definition, are caused by external forces on the tissues, often in the regions of bony prominences. Wheelchair users are at risk to develop sitting-acquired pressure ulcers, which occur in the regions ...
Friction characteristics of preventative wound dressings under clinically‐relevant conditions dataset
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-12-15)
Wound dressings can be used prophylactically or during actual treatment. Preventative dressings have become a standard of care to prevent pressure ulcers in patients while in bed. While the mechanism of the preventative ...
Buttock tissue response to loading in men with SCI dataset
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-01-26)
Objective/Background: Despite the fact that most people with a spinal cord injury who use a wheelchair for mobility are considered at-risk for pressure ulcer (PrU) development, there still exists a spectrum of risk amongst ...
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 ...
An Exploratory Analysis of The Role of Adipose Characteristics in Fulltime Wheelchair Users’ Pressure Injury History - Supplementary Data
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2021)
The goals of this study were 1) to identify the relationship between adipose (subcutaneous and intramuscular) characteristics and pressure injury (PrI) history in wheelchair users, and 2) to identify subject characteristics, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Video: Skeletal Displacement and Shear Strain Example During Head of Bed Elevation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2019)
This realtime MRI video demonstrates the caudal displacement of the spine relative to the skin when the head of the bed is elevated 30 degrees. Friction with the sheets keeps the skin from slipping. This video is a great ...
Survey of Users of Wheelchair Seat Elevators
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2017)
This is a technical report to document and share the data collected using an on-line anonymous survey of wheelchair users who use seat elevators..
