    Innovative training device optimizes Paralympian wheelchair use

    The Center for Human Movement Sciences of the UMCG/UG, together with Lode BV, has developed a new wheelchair ergometer. This is a new technology that enables all wheelchair users, from early on in the rehabilitation process to Paralympic level sports, to train in their own wheelchair and be given feedback.

    The equipment enables the force exerted on each separate wheel to be measured. Detailed measurements can be taken on how the performance is achieved, thus enabling the propulsion method and fitness of the individual to be improved and the wheelchair further optimized. This can help prevent physical strain and generate better performance. The new ergometer is the first in the world of its kind.
