... to propel a manual wheelchair over a smooth tiled surface following rectilinear (“Straight”) and curvilinear (“Slalom”) trajectories. Three unique loading conditions were tested. Propulsion costs and system rolling resistance estimations were empirically collected using the robotic wheelchair tester...

... the propulsion efficiencies of four folding and two rigid ultra-lightweight frames equipped with identical drive tires and casters. A robotic wheelchair tester was used to measure the propulsion costs of each chair over two surfaces: concrete and carpet. A motorized carousel was used to drive the chairs 511 km...
