There are many ways to propel yourself in a wheelchair. People who do not pay attention to this are at risk of developing chronic shoulder and wrist pain. The purpose of this mandate is to design and evaluate a feedback method, in our wheelchair simulator, to automatically detect areas for improvement in the propulsion technique and to allow the user to improve.
