abstract

  • The primary aim of this investigation was to compare maximum wheelchair performance with arm cranking using a multistage progressive work load protocol. In five subjects with a wide range of neurological disability and two normal males the differences observed in maximum oxygen uptake, heart rate and ventilation during two forms of upper limbs exercise, were not significant.
