Abstract

This paper concerns the design of a racing wheelchair with a pulley-cable system of propulsion inspired by a rowing gesture, named Handhweelchair.q racing. The main goal of this work is to facilitate the mobility of a racing wheelchair, not only on the athletic track or on specially designed paths, but even on cycle paths, parks, city roads, and country roads. In addition, the innovative propulsion system represents an alternative to the hand-rim system in order to limit the problem related to the overuse of the shoulder joint caused by repetitive motion.
