Pilot study for quantifying driving characteristics during power wheelchair soccer. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012;49(1):75–82. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Study Aim – Determine driving characteristics of wheelchair users during power wheelchair (PWC) soccer games. Relevance – Participation in adapted sports significantly enhances quality of life for veterans with disabilities. – However, individuals with greater physical impairment and who rely on a PWC have difficulty participating in regular physical activity and are at risk for adopting sedentary lifestyles. – Little literature exists on PWC use during sports and other mobility-related activities.

Pilot study for quantifying driving characteristics during power wheelchair soccer. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012;49(1):75–82. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Methods Data were collected at 28th and 29th National Veterans Wheelchair Games from veterans who were 18 or older and PWC soccer players. – Customized data-logging device was placed on participant’s wheelchair before power soccer game participation and removed after his/her final game.

Pilot study for quantifying driving characteristics during power wheelchair soccer. J Rehabil Res Dev. 2012;49(1):75–82. Slideshow Project DOI: /JRRD JSP Conclusions Results may provide future insights to researchers in adapted sports for people with high-level physical impairments. Data loggers may be play significant role in optimizing sports performance through design of customized PWCs, programmable controls, and wheelchair drive types. Future studies may include electronic devices that quantify level of participation in PWC sports or risks of injuries, such as seat shear, during adapted sports participation.
