Abstract

During propulsion, the elbow showed alternating flexion/extension patterns (Rao et al.,1996). The movement dynamics in wheelchair basketball (WB) are specifically related to handling the wheelchair in sprinting, bracking, turning and blocking. The ability to accelerate the wheelchair from standstill will be determinate by several components, such as explosive strength and propulsion technique (Vanlandewijck et al., 2001).
