Comparison of Simulated Physical Load of Sidewalk Curb for Electric, Manual Wheelchair Users and Visually Impaired People

This article will discuss how physical activity, depending on work load as well as work environment, is modulated by electrocardio-vascular activity. Activity of an electrocardiogram (ECG) may be associated with the physical load of moving for people with mobility handicaps in use of wheelchairs. The aim of this article is to investigate the relationship of ECG activity with the physical load of electric and manual wheelchair users and visually impaired people when crossing a main road with difficult access to sidewalks.
