Enhancement and preservation of maximal transfer and wheelchair propulsion ability.

 

Research Interests


Our first focus is defining what level of fitness and ‘skill’ are required to independently perform transfers to and from the bed, car, shower, and ground and if these are different for various levels of SCI.  Our second focus is defining how changes in fitness and wheelchair configuration can meaningfully reduce the effort required to propel a manual wheelchair and how these changes may differ by level of SCI.
