    Abstract

    Background: To evaluate the effect of a 7-week low-intensity hand rim wheelchair training on the submaximal metabolic cost, mechanical efficiency and propulsion technique in able-bodied participants. Methods: Participants were randomly divided over an experimental group (n = 14) and a control group (n = 7). The experimental group received 7 weeks wheelchair training (3 week
