The SmartWheel is a wheelchair propulsion monitor designed for professional use in clinical or research settings with people who have lower extremity or mobility disabilities or spinal cord injury and others who use manual wheelchairs. This device mounts onto the wheel of a manual wheelchair and examines the ability and performance of a person to propel the wheelchair in a variety of environments. of the wheelchair user. A Wi-Fi high-speed wireless link and on-board memory allow for the collection of data from almost anywhere: in the clinic or lab, down hallways, or outside at a park. The device has an indoor wireless communication range of up to 300 feet and an outdoor range of up to 500 feet. This provides clinicians with a tool to quantify the process of wheelchair selection, fitting, and propulsion training. In research venues, this device has been used to study biomechanics and wheelchair propulsion, the efficacy of interventions, and the efficacy of wheelchair-related products and accessories. Data provided by the SmartWheel is used to compute resultant force; radial, tangential, and axial forces and moments; acceleration/rate of rise, stroke frequency per second; stroke length; velocity; and distance traveled. Features include on-board memory with a 32 megabyte (MB) FLASH MultiMedia Card (MMC) that enables data collection outside of wireless operating range, widely selectable data sampling frequency, and force and moment sensing beams with auto sensing of the SmartWheel angular position at start-up. Other features include an optical encoder, analog-to-digital conversion, and graphical support software for viewing and recording data. The unit is equipped with a half-inch axle mount compatible with most manual wheelchairs. SIZES: Fits wheelchair wheels with diameters of 22, 24, 25 or 26 inches. POWER: Uses 9-Volt rechargeable or alkaline batteries. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM and compatible computers. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: A personal computer running Windows 2000 or XP with a 1 GigaHertz (GHz )Pentium III or faster processor (or equivalent), Ethernet network interface card dedicated to SMARTWheel, and a wireless access point connection. Excel or Matlab is recommended for viewing and manipulating data.
