Wheelchair-user study

The kinesiology department is seeking research participants for a study to develop methods for measuring physical activity among manual wheelchair users with a spinal cord injury.

Those 18 to 65 years old who have experienced a spinal cord injury (Classified as ASIA-A to C) might be eligible for the study.

Participants will complete one two-hour session at UGA and then wear activity measurement devices at home for a three-day period. Participants can earn up to $50 for their time. For more information, contact Jill Lucas at
