In response to a longstanding need for accurate measurement of forces applied to wheelchair handrims, a groundbreaking telemetric system has been developed, marking a significant advancement in assistive technology. This innovative system, utilizing three biaxial load cells, offers precise real-time measurements, filling a void in the market where previous solutions lacked such capability. Moreover, its adaptability to various wheel types, coupled with its compact and lightweight design, ensures minimal interference with pushing biomechanics across different applications. This transformative technology, complemented by its telemetry feature and dedicated app, empowers users with invaluable insights into push dynamics, thereby revolutionizing wheelchair mobility and sports performance evaluation.
