    Manual Wheelchairs: Optimizing Prescription and Set Up
    $15.00

    Online Course:

    Understanding the impact of rolling resistance on manual wheelchairs is important in wheelchair prescription and set up. Minimizing rolling resistance in wheelchair configuration for an individual helps to maximize efficiency of propulsion, helps to decrease the risk of repetitive strain injuries, and helps to decrease the risk of sliding for individuals who foot propel. This webinar will define rolling resistance and inertia and explain the impact of the two on forward movement and maneuverability. Factors that contribute to rolling resistance will be examined and evidence related to these factors will be highlighted. These factors include the mass of the user and the wheelchair; weight distribution between the casters and rear wheel; size and type of tire and caster; air pressure/inflation; and surface over which the wheelchair is being propelled.
