  • Modeling manual wheelchair propulsion cost during straight and curvilinear trajectories dataset 

    Misch, Jacob; Huang, Morris; Sprigle, Stephen (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 ...
  • In-seat activity of wheelchair users measured over multiple epochs dataset 

    Sprigle, Stephen; Sonenblum, Sharon; Feng, Chen (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 ...
  • Buttock tissue response to loading in men with SCI dataset 

    Sonenblum, Sharon Eve; Sprigle, Stephen (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 ...
