The Super MWC and HC models, while an extension of previous Flat-Round product offerings, also represent Young's new engineering strategy, which incorporates a standardized and automated CAD design process.
Evaluating resistances is critical to the study of manual wheelchair (MWC) propulsion.
Furthermore, MWC propulsion models [1,9-13] have established the relation between wheel radius and rolling resistance; i.e., for a given laden weight, the wheel rolling resistance increases when the radius is reduced and vice versa.
Most of our participants (21 out of 26 for MWCs; and 9 out of 13 for PWCs) reported owning a backup, or secondary, wheelchair.
More recently, a study reported the use of data loggers for monitoring MWC-related mobility, comparing distance traveled, amount of continuous travel (without stopping), and hours of wheelchair use for wheelchair athletes during organized sporting events versus MWC use within their community .
